    Reduced duration of quarantine possible in some cases

    December 11, 2020

    A Message from Deanne W. Hurley, VP for Student Affairs; Kelli Knaus, Director of Human Resources

    On December 7, 2020, Ursuline’s COVID-19 Testing Committee met to discuss the new Ohio Department of Health (ODH) options to allow for reduced duration of quarantine after exposure, and the committee made the following decision:

    • Ursuline College will continue to expect 14 days of quarantine after exposure to COVID-19. CDC and ODH state that this period presents the lowest risk of post-quarantine transmission and is the preferred strategy for people living in congregate living facilities or high-density workplaces.
    • However, students, staff, and faculty will have the option of using the newly modified ODH guidelines, which allow consideration of a 10-day quarantine after exposure, if they obtain a viral test near the end of this period (day 8 or after) with a negative result and present it to either the HR Office (staff and faculty) or the VP for Student Affairs (students).
    • Students, staff, and faculty are responsible for any costs of testing.
    • Without proof of a negative test, the person must continue quarantine for the full 14 days.
    • Student athletes in practice/competition will be quarantined for 10 days.
    • On day 10 athletes will receive an antigen test. If it is negative, they may return to practice/competition/classes on Day 11.
