What is sequestration?
Sequestering means minimizing in-person interactions whether in the dorms, dining facilities, or other on or off campus locations where individuals congregate or interact. Students should leave their residences only to participate in essential activities (e.g., to pick up meals or purchase food, participate in low-risk outdoor recreational activities, or obtain health care services).
Sequestration applies to students who are unvaccinated and moving onto campus. They will need to test with 48 hours of arrival and sequester for a minimum of seven (7) days, during which time they must receive two (2) negative tests. They will then continue testing weekly as well as need to continue wearing face coverings.
Throughout the sequestration period:
1. Practice the two basics of COVID-19 prevention: wear a face-covering outside of your room and frequently wash your hands.
4. No guests or visitors! No one is permitted in your room except you! If you live in an apartment, no one but you and your assigned apartment-mate(s) are allowed in the unit.
5. Do not leave your residence except to participate in essential activities (e.g., to pick up meals or purchase food, participate in low-risk outdoor recreational activities, or obtain healthcare services).
6. No in-person gatherings. Residents under sequestration are not permitted to host or attend gatherings of any kind.
Failure to comply with these requirements will result in disciplinary action. Some restrictions will continue beyond the sequestration period.
