COVID-19 Procedures

Protocol for Positive Cases and Close Contacts

Students and seminarians who test positive for COVID-19 or have COVID-19 symptoms unrelated to a previous health condition, regardless of vaccination status, must follow CDC isolation guidelines:

  • Isolate for 5 days after the positive test or onset of symptoms (whichever first).
  • Contact Vice President for Student Life Levi Esses, Ph.D., to make arrangements for isolation and to be excused from class. Seminarians must contact Fr. Diego Ruiz, dean of men.
  • Check in with Health Services who will determine if the student is cleared for release (no fever for 24 hours prior and symptoms have resolved);
  • Wear a mask when around others for 5 more days.

Exposure to Someone with COVID-19

You should

  • Wear a mask around others for 10 days.
  • Test on day 5, if possible.
  • If you develop symptoms get a test and stay home.

In the event of a positive case, contact tracing will be initiated to identify close contacts who may be required to quarantine in accordance with CDC guidance. For COVID-19, a close contact is anyone who was within 6 feet of an infected person for a total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period within 48 hours (or 2 days) of the infected person developing symptoms or testing positive for COVID-19. All medical information obtained during contact tracing efforts will be protected as confidential.

Experiencing COVID-19 Symptoms

Students and seminarians who are not fully vaccinated must monitor their temperature and COVID-19 symptoms daily. If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms that are not associated with a previous health condition (such as allergies), wear a mask for 10 days and get tested 5 full days after the onset of symptoms.
