The CDC has a very helpful resource (navigate to the “Protect Yourself” section) for living/working around someone who is, or may be, positive for COVID-19. The VDH also has a comprehensive PDF that outlines when it is safe to be around others after isolation and quarantine periods. Housemates living off Grounds should develop a plan for what to do if someone becomes sick, including temporary living arrangements during a housemate’s quarantine and/or isolation period:
- Self-isolating in the house/apartment (works best if each housemate has access to their own bathroom)
- Going home to your permanent residence
- Staying with a friend
- Utilizing a hotel
Please be contact your professors directly about your classes and any potential accommodations if COVID-related circumstances will prevent you from being present in person.
