COVID-19 Resource Center

Treatment (Including Quarantine & Isolation)

Students receiving COVID-19 tests at the Student Health Services (located at the HUB) will complete a Student Contact Tracing Report Form, which will assist the University in contact tracing efforts should the student test positive for COVID-19.

Students who receive a COVID-19 test at Student Health Services will be provided a resource packet which will include:

  • End of Visit Summary and Instructions from the TriHealth Medical Provider
  • Resource Lists for On-Campus residents and Off-Campus non-resident students
  • Assigned temporary housing information, and keys to quarantine/isolation space if applicable
  • Meal instruction/campus support resource information
  • TriHealth medical staff will provide a letter to the student that can be shared with faculty and/or employers.
  • Both on and off campus residents will be advised to return to their permanent residence if they can do so safely.

Quarantine

Student will leave the student health center to begin quarantine or isolation in a designated campus quarantine/isolation space or their current on-campus residence hall assignment. On-campus residents who are assigned a designated campus quarantine/isolation space will be provided with PPE to return to their assigned residential space to collect their belongings to take with them to the designated quarantine living space.

  • Students will be advised that the transition from their housing assignment to the quarantine space should take place as quickly as possible, generally not to exceed 30 minutes.
  • Those living off-campus will be asked to return to their off-campus housing and begin self-quarantine immediately.

Room/suite/apartment-mate implications

As a protective strategy for our dense residential community, students sharing on-campus residential living spaces (such as residence hall rooms, suites, and apartments) with a student designated as a close contact (as defined by CDC) will be expected to self-quarantine in their current on-campus living space for the duration of the recommended quarantine period (generally 14 days).

  • Xavier will contact the on-campus roommates of any student who is expected to engage in quarantine space and advise them of the expectation that they engage in self-quarantine in their current on-campus housing assignment.
  • Xavier will provide key campus resource information to all impacted room/suite/apartment-mates and will provide access to food services and other support resources for the duration of their self-quarantine.
  • Xavier will provide the on-campus room/suite/apartment-mates of any on-campus quarantined student with documentation to be shared with faculty/employers.
  • Due to the nature of the building design (common area bathrooms) the roommate of any Brockman resident will be expected to move to on-campus quarantine space and will receive all available support resources, including contactless food delivery.

Daily Check-In

  • Symptomatic students (both on and off-campus) who are awaiting test results will receive daily check-ins from the TriHealth Medical Team for symptom management.
  • Students who test positive will receive information from Student Health Services regarding isolation protocols and guidance regarding the earliest possible date of release from isolation.
  • Room/suite/apartment-mates of students who receive a positive test result will be released from self-quarantine after 14 days have passed since the start of their quarantine period.
  • Room/suite/apartment-mates who may become symptomatic will contact Health Services for direction in care/symptom management, and possible scheduling of appointment with Student Health Services

Release from Quarantine/Isolation

  • Students engaging in quarantine or isolation will be released from quarantine/self-quarantine restrictions under the direction of the TriHealth medical provider in accordance with CDC guidelines.
  • Letters of release will be provided to these students by TriHealth and Xavier, respectively.
  • Students who transitioned to isolation, who meet the criteria for release from isolation as identified by CDC will be released at the appropriate time indicated by TriHealth medical staff and will receive documentation affirming their clearance and release.
  • Key collection from student and room turn-over processes will be provided by the Office of Residence Life.
