Who does not need to quarantine

If you came into close contact with someone with COVID-19 and you are in one of the following groups, you do not need to quarantine.

You should wear a well-fitting mask around others for 10 days from the date of your last close contact with someone with COVID-19 (the date of last close contact is considered day 0). 

Get tested at least 5 days after you last had close contact with someone with COVID-19.

If you test positive or develop COVID-19 symptoms, isolate from other people.

If you tested positive for COVID-19 with a viral test within the previous 90 days and subsequently recovered and remain without COVID-19 symptoms, you do not need to quarantine or get tested after close contact. You should wear a well-fitting mask around others for 10 days from the date of your last close contact with someone with COVID-19 (the date of last close contact is considered day 0).

 

If you come into close contact with someone with COVID-19, you should quarantine if you are in one of the following groups:

  • You are ages 18 or older and completed the primary series of recommended vaccine, but have not received a recommended booster shot when eligible.
  • You received the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine (completing the primary series) over 2 months ago and have not received a recommended booster shot.
  • You are not vaccinated or have not completed a primary vaccine series.

Those required to relocate for isolation and quarantine are expected to return to their legal residence for their quarantine and isolation period.

For those unable to return home, UAH will maintain a limited number of on-campus housing spaces designated for isolation and quarantine space. UAH students who are required to isolate or quarantine will be required to follow course policies designated for each course during the period of quarantine or isolation.
