What if I am exposed to someone with COVID? 

If you are deemed a “very close contact,” it means you have been in close proximity to a COVID-positive person who fits the following description(s) below:

  • A COVID-positive roommate
  • A COVID-positive person living in the same household
  • A COVID-positive significant other
  • A COVID-positive person who you have spent an extended period of time with (this will need to be discussed further with the health center staff to determine appropriate precautions)

If you have been identified as a “very close contact,” you will need to follow the guidelines available below. 

Please note: very close contacts will NOT need to quarantine off campus unless they are unvaccinated.
