Even in a fully vaccinated community, a positive test for COVID-19 is still possible in breakthrough cases.
If you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 or tested positive yourself, please complete the COVID-19 Notification Form. Exposure or positive test results will be reported to the health consultant, who will determine contact tracing, isolation, or quarantine protocols. If you test positive for COVID-19, you may also be contacted by your local health officer for contact tracing and further guidance.
Per current CDC guidelines, vaccinated individuals who have been exposed to a person with COVID-19 should be tested three to five days after of exposure and should wear a face covering when around others. Unvaccinated individuals will need to quarantine for 14 days after exposure, per local public health guidance.
Routine maintenance of Seminary residences will not be scheduled when someone in the residence is on health quarantine, isolation, or travel quarantine.
Health quarantine is the term used for a situation when someone has been exposed to COVID-19, is experiencing symptoms compatible with COVID-19, or has recently traveled under certain circumstances. A health quarantine requires the individual remain in their residence except to seek medical care. Individuals with roommates must maintain a face covering in common areas and not share utensils or meals. The health consultant can help arrange for groceries if needed.
Isolation is the term used for a situation when someone has tested positive for COVID-19. The individual must also remain in their residence except for medical treatment. They must have essentially no in-person contact with others in the residence. The health consultant can help an individual create a plan for managing isolation and groceries. Quarantine apartments are available through the health consultant in certain situations.
