In case of illness or suspected illness

Stay home and do not arrive at the campus. Contact your local healthcare authority regarding a COVID-19 test.

You should also stay home if someone you have close contact with, or live in the same household with, is waiting for an answer to a COVID-19 test (Waiting Quarantine). Only when the test is confirmed to be negative can you return to the campus.

If in doubt, the local emergency preparedness team leader, or the person in charge at your campus, can help you decide when to stay home.
