Henderson State University has adopted ADH guidance that provides options for quarantine for students and employees. These options only apply to those who have remained WITHOUT SYMPTOMS during their quarantine period.
- Quarantine can end after Day 10 (i.e. return on Day 11) without testing and if no symptoms have occurred during the quarantine period.
- Quarantine can end after Day 7 (i.e. return on Day 8) if the individual tests negative (“send-off” PCR tests are preferred but antigen tests are acceptable) and if no symptoms occurred during the quarantine. The specimen should not be collected any sooner than 5 full days after exposure.
- Individuals should continue to monitor themselves for symptoms through Day 14.
- Should symptoms develop after 7 or 10 day release, the individual should immediately quarantine and get tested for COVID-19.
The standard 14 day quarantine is still considered the safest option and continues to be available. This option is mandatory for those who have been exposed and have had any symptoms.
