If You've Been Diagnosed with COVID-19
  • Living off campus? Visit the Off-Campus Isolation Guide.
  • The CDC calls for any COVID-19-positive person to isolate for at least five days. Visit Quarantine & Isolation Guide and Calculator for more information.
  • Residential students should complete their five-day isolation at home or off campus, if feasible. W&M does not provide dedicated quarantine or isolation housing. 
  • In extenuating circumstances, residential students who are unable to return home must isolate in their room for the five days, attending class remotely if possible and if they feel well enough to do so. Otherwise, they should partner with professors to arrange being out sick for the duration of the isolation period. Visit Academic Resources & Support
  • Students in isolation must continue to wear a mask at all times in shared spaces to the extent they are able, including shared bathrooms and residence hall rooms.
  • Isolating students may leave their rooms to pick up to-go items from dining halls or campus retail dining locations, to pick up prescriptions or obtain medical care. They should wear a mask, practice social distancing and limit outings as much as possible.
