Isolation & Quarantine

6x1

Close Contacts

The Virginia Department of Health recommends that anyone who tests positive should inform their close contacts of the exposure. Close contacts may have various steps to take depending on their vaccination status. The local health department makes every effort to reach out to those who test positive to provide more individualized guidance.

Students with concern for close contact exposure should review the SHW Quarantine and Isolation webpage for next steps. Faculty, staff, and UVA Health team members may contact Employee Health.

 

Isolation and Quarantine

Isolation is the separation from others of an individual who has a confirmed infection of COVID-19. Public health officials (CDC, VDH, university officials) define the parameters for isolation, which have evolved over time.  Please check the SHW Quarantine and Isolation webpage for up-to-date guidelines.
 

Quarantine is the separation from others of an individual who has been in close contact with someone with a positive diagnosis of COVID-19. Public health officials (CDC, VDH, university officials) define the parameters for quarantine, which have evolved over time.  Please check the SHW Quarantine and Isolation webpage for up-to-date guidelines.

Students living off-Grounds will be expected to quarantine or isolate from ALL their housemate(s) at their off-Grounds housing. The University will provide Isolation Housing only to students who are unable to isolate at their permanent home due to extenuating circumstances (e.g. distance, high-risk family members, unsafe home environment.)

Information for employees is available on the UVA HR site.
