In an effort to do everything possible to avoid another surge of COVID-19 cases after spring break, and another extended quarantine period, campus leaders have made the decision to implement a mandatory self-sequester for all students living in the residence halls including those in suites and mini-suites from March 26 through at least April 8. Some other key highlights about the sequester:

  • Solo outdoor exercise will be permitted during the sequester.
  • The mandatory self-sequester does not apply to students living in apartments, though if you travel or engage in high-risk activities during spring break, you must still self-sequester for 10 days after your return.
  • It is critical that you remain on your UHS testing schedule before, during and after spring break.
  • Dining services will also be modified during the sequester.

Please also keep in mind that while the CDC recently released new interim public health recommendations for fully vaccinated people, these guidelines do not currently apply to students living in congregate settings such as the residence halls.
