If You Have Symptoms of COVID-19
If You Test Positive for COVID-19 (Isolation)
If you are unwilling or unable to mask around others according to the above guidelines, you will need to remain in isolation for the full 10 days.
If You Were Exposed to Someone with COVID-19
Vaccine or Booster
Following the new CDC guidelines, there is no expectation for quarantine with an exposure to a COVID-positive person as long as the exposed individual remains asymptomatic; therefore claiming they have been exposed and needing to quarantine is no longer a valid excuse to miss class.
USF’s COVID website https://www.usiouxfalls.edu/covid will serve as the university’s most current and comprehensive repository of COVID-related information throughout the semester.
