    • New confusion
    • Inability to wake or stay awake
    • Pale, gray, or blue-colored skin, lips, or nail beds, depending on skin tone

    Call 911 if you have a medical emergency: Notify the operator that you have, or think you might have, COVID-19. Put on a face mask before medical help arrives.

  • How do I know if I am at an increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19?

    People of any age with certain underlying medical conditions are at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19. The CDC website lists medical conditions that can lead to an increased risk for severe illness.

    If you are unsure, consult with a healthcare provider for guidance. Please also review the CDC’s website for information on reducing your risk of getting COVID-19 and actions you can take based on your medical conditions and other risk factors. 

COVID-19 Vaccine

Students are strongly encouraged to be vaccinated against COVID-19 to safeguard their health and the health of all members of our University and community.

Students can find vaccination locations nearest them by visiting

You may have some side effects after receiving the vaccine, which are normal signs that your body is building protection. These side effects may affect your ability to do daily activities, but they should go away in a few days. On the arm where you got the shot: pain, redness, and swelling. Throughout the rest of your body: fever, chills, tiredness, headache, muscle pain, and nausea. Visit the CDC website for more information and tips on managing the side effects from the vaccine. Please contact your healthcare provider if your fever lasts more than 2 days or is accompanied by sore throat, congestion, cough, and/or loss of taste or smell. 

Self-Quarantine and Self-Isolation Guidance

Open All Tabs
  • What is the difference between self-quarantine and self-isolation?

    Quarantine: used to keep someone who might have been exposed to COVID-19 away from others. Quarantine helps prevent the spread of disease that can occur before a person knows they are sick or if they are infected with the virus without feeling symptoms.

    Isolation: used to separate people infected with the virus (with or without symptoms) from people who are not infected. People who are in isolation should stay home until it’s safe for them to be around others. In the home, anyone sick or infected should separate themselves from others by staying in a specific “sick room” or area and using a separate bathroom (if available).

  • Where will self-isolation or self-quarantine occur for students?

    There is currently no university sponsored isolation spaces for students.

  • How do I self-quarantine?

    • If you are vaccinated and received at least one booster, mask around others both indoors and outdoors for 10 days following the exposure.
    • Obtain a COVID test five (5) days following the exposure. Get tested sooner if you develop symptoms.

  • How do I self-isolate?

    Stay home except to get medical care

    • Monitor your symptoms. If you have an emergency warning sign (including trouble breathing), seek emergency medical care immediately
    • Stay home until it’s safe to end home isolation
    • Stay in a separate room from other household members, if possible
    • Use a separate bathroom, if possible
    • Avoid contact with other members of the household and pets
    • Don’t share personal household items, like cups, towels, and utensils
    • Wear a face mask when around other people


    Review the CDC guidelines on self-isolation and the Student Health guidelines on self-isolation.

  • How does being vaccinated against COVID-19 impact my quarantine or isolation?

    Students experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, regardless of vaccination, should schedule an appointment with a Student Health provider by visiting MyUHealthChart. You may be placed in isolation following an evaluation from a medical provider. 

    Isolation: The COVID-19 vaccine does not exempt you from isolation if you test positive for COVID-19 or start to experience symptoms.

Absence Verification

Students, faculty, and workplace supervisors can request Student Health Service to confirm dates that a student is in isolation/quarantine. Review our Class Excuse Policy for complete information.
