COVID-19 Employee Guidelines

COVID Protocol Spring 2024

On March 1, 2024, the CDC issued new guidelines for respiratory illness, including a change in the isolation period for COVID-19. These updates allow us to continue to update our campus protocols, consistent with current CDC guidance. Please note the following:

  • When you’re sick with a respiratory illness, stay home and/or away from others. Seek treatment (COVID-19 and influenza) when available to lessen symptoms and reduce the risk of severe illness.  
  • You may return to normal activities (e.g. reporting to your regular work location, etc.) when symptoms have improved and you are fever-free without medication for 24 hours. A five-day isolation period for COVID-19 is no longer required.  
  • After resuming normal activities, please take appropriate precautions for the next five days which include good hygiene, mask wearing, distancing, and testing for viruses.  
  • Staying up to date on vaccinations is still the best way to protect yourself and others against serious illness.
  • Get fresh air and practice good hygiene: hand washing, covering coughs/sneezes, and cleaning surfaces.

COVID-19 vaccination is recommended for everyone ages 6 months and older in the United States for the prevention of COVID-19. We appreciate your ongoing cooperation and dedication to ensuring the safety of our campus.
