Earlier this month, the CDC updated guidelines for people who test positive for COVID-19. The new guidance, adopted by the College, now matches public health advice for flu and other contagious respiratory viruses: consider staying home when you are sick, use actionable measures to protect yourself and others, and return to work and school when you are feeling better. People no longer need to isolate themselves for 5 days or report positive tests to Bailey Health Center. The shift reflects the sustained decrease in hospitalizations and other severe outcomes from COVID-19. The College will continue to monitor all serious contagious infections in the community to ensure we have the tools necessary to limit the spread of illness on our campus.
