Undergraduate students living on campus or in University-sponsored housing who are suspected or confirmed to have COVID-19 will be isolated until they are determined to no longer be contagious based on CDC criteria. Wake Forest has made arrangements to set aside distinct spaces that can provide single rooms with private bathrooms and a refrigerator for food supplies, and infected students will be isolated in these spaces.
Undergraduate students living on campus or in University-sponsored housing and off-campus students who have been exposed to a confirmed case of COVID-19 will be instructed to quarantine in one of these private rooms until the CDC criteria for quarantine after exposure have been met. These students who are in isolation or in quarantine AND are living on campus or in University-sponsored housing will have meals and/or grocery boxes delivered to them. (NOTE: graduate/professional students will need to make their own arrangements).
Students in quarantine will be required to continue daily symptom screening through the SneezSafe app. Students who develop symptoms while in quarantine will be contacted by the SHS to discuss their symptoms and connect them with appropriate medical evaluation.
Students in isolation (confirmed to have COVID-19) will be contacted daily by the Student Health Service for symptom monitoring and support; additional medical intervention will take place as needed. There will also be a system in place to ensure students have food and other resources while in isolation or quarantine.
Other students confirmed with COVID-19 (including undergraduate students not in University-sponsored housing as well as graduate/professional students), will be directed to isolate in their off-campus dwellings.
The Student Health Service has a website explaining the difference in these processes, and what students should know. Residence Life & Housing also provides details about what to expect.
