Quarantine and Isolation Info

The following quarantine and isolation policies apply if you’ve been in contact with COVID.

What is quarantine?

Quarantine keeps someone who might have been exposed to the virus away from others.

What is isolation?

Isolation separates sick people with a contagious disease from people who are not sick. Those who test positive for COVID-19, but do not need to be admitted to the hospital for treatment, will be required to isolate. 

Isolation is for individuals who test positive for COVID or are symptomatic and awaiting a COVID test results, whereas quarantine is for individuals who may have been exposed to someone who has COVID.

How am I informed that I must quarantine or isolate?

Students needing to isolate will be contacted directly by Health Services. Students needing to quarantine will be notified by a RISD staff member.
