COVID Positive Cases

Updated october 2, 2023
  • If off-campus when positive result is known, please contact the Health Center and submit the COVID positive result via email to health_center@loomis.org. Faculty and Staff, please report positive cases to HR.
  • Students, Faculty, and Staff will need to isolate off campus for 5 days and may return on day 6 if symptoms are improving or have resolved, and you have remained fever free for at least 24 hours without using fever reducing medications.
  • Mask diligently indoors and outdoors for 10 days. You can unmask on day 11. You can unmask on day 8 if you test negative on day 6 AND day 8 (students must do both tests in the Health Center upon return to campus). If you test positive on day 6, you need to continue to mask until day 11. 

To calculate your isolation period: day 0 is the day you tested positive for COVID.

Ex: If you tested positive on January 10th

Day 0 = January 10
Day 1 = January 11
Day 2 = January 12
Day 3 = January 13
Day 4 = January 14
Day 5 = January 15
Day 6 = January 16 (resume activities, remain masked)
Day 11 = January 21 (unmask)
  • Students who are participating in sports can begin their return-to-play protocol upon return to campus with a medical clearance obtained by a health center provider. You can access the Return to Play form (PDF) here.
