What are resident self-quarantine protocols?
The CDC recommends if someone in a household (unit) has symptoms or come in contact with someone known to have symptoms, the household (unit) should self-quarantine for 14 days. We ask that the resident stay in their assigned unit during this period and we will deliver food from the café to those residents who are quarantining. The quarantined students can also coordinate with the staff for trash removal. If the students have something delivered, we can escort the delivery driver to drop off the items at their front door.
