Individuals included in this category are students, employees and faculty that either live in residence halls, attend class on campus, or work on campus. All individuals who test positive for COVID-19 or are presumed positive are asked to isolate for a minimum of 10 days, with the last 24 hours being fever free without the use of fever reducing medication, and improvement in symptoms.
