When a student has to be isolated or quarantined, how are they provided with medical care and food?

  • Care for these students in University Housing will happen in collaboration with University Health Services. UHS will have a health check-in for students daily (most likely through a virtual visit). If their health or needs change, students should contact UHS immediately. Residence Life staff will check in periodically (virtually) with these students to see if any additional support is needed.
  • Dining services run by University Housing will deliver three meals a day and snacks to Housing students in isolation spaces. Students in isolation will receive an online order form that will allow them to order meals and snacks. The student will be able to note any food allergies or dietary restrictions, and Dining will be able to accommodate any noted need.
  • Students in quarantine will receive meals from the location where they are staying (for example Union South is providing meals to students quarantined at that location). Those facilities will provide menus for students to order from and are also able to accommodate any food allergies or dietary needs
  • For students who live off campus, contact tracing staff will be in touch with resources and guidance for self-quarantine. We encourage students who live off campus to create and share a plan with their roommates, friends, and family members in the event that they test positive for COVID-19.
