COVID-19 14-Day Quarantine Exemptions

Updated on Thursday, April 15, 2021:

If you determine you may have been exposed to COVID-19 during your travels or activities and are not fully vaccinated, please self-quarantine for 14-days and notify the Attendance Office that you are self-quarantining.

Ursuline students and staff requesting an exemption from the required 14-day quarantine as a close contact to a positive case will be required to meet one of the two requirements below and provide Ursuline with the appropriate documents for that exemption:

  • Exemption as testing positive for COVID-19 within 90 days from latest exposure:
    • A copy of the positive lab results either a rapid antigen test result or PCR test lab results indicating the positive results. A copy is requested when contact tracing is completed but a copy must also be presented when requesting a quarantine exemption. It will be very important going forward that you request a copy of the lab results when you test positive for COVID-19. Make copies and keep at the ready if you ever want to request a quarantine exemption due to a past case.
  • Exemption for COVID-19 vaccination:
    • You are fully vaccinated and provide a copy of the official CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card. Fully vaccinated is ≥ 2 weeks following receipt of the second dose in a two-dose series, or ≥ 2 weeks following receipt of one dose of a single-dose vaccine) and,
    • Have remained asymptomatic since the current COVID-19 exposure and continue to monitor for symptoms for 14-days from exposure.

Persons who do not meet the above vaccination criteria should continue to follow Ursuline/CDC/DCHHS current 14-day quarantine guidance after exposure to someone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19.

Without the positive lab report of a positive case of COVID-19 or the copy of the official CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card, we will request that you quarantine for 14-days for the safety of the Ursuline community. Antibody testing lab results will not be accepted in place of the above requirements.

Please keep in mind that all the above requirements may be updated frequently as this is very fluid situation. We encourage you to stay updated on the Ursuline COVID-19 website.
