Isolation Education

If you are in isolation or have been told to isolate that means you have tested positive for COVID-19. 

Isolation is used to separate people infected with the virus (those who are sick with COVID-19 and those with no symptoms) from people who are not infected. 

If you test positive for COVID-19, you should:

  • Complete the COVID-19 Self-Report Form on the One St. Thomas website
  • Stay home except to get medical care
  • Monitor your symptoms. If you have an emergency warning sign (including trouble breathing), seek emergency medical care immediately
  • Stay in a separate room from other people you live with
  • Use a separate bathroom, if possible (wear face-covering/mask when going to hall bathroom)
  • Avoid contact with roommates and pets
  • Wear a cloth face covering when around other people

Remain at your place of residence or a designated isolation/quarantine space on campus for at least:

  • At least 10 days have passed since symptom onset and
  • At least 24 hours have passed since the resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications and
  • Other symptoms have improved

Additional information may be found on the CDC website.
