Completion of Self-Quarantine / Isolation

If you have been self-quarantined or self-isolated, you must be approved to return to campus before resuming your normal school, work and related activities.

To do so, complete the Return to Campus form. You must report diagnosis or exposure before submitting a request to return to campus.

Request to Return to Campus

Your request to return will be evaluated based upon which of these circumstances describes your situation:

  1. If you are under self-isolation because you have a positive test result or a diagnosis of COVID-19 AND you have exhibited Coronavirus Symptoms:
    • At least 24 hours have passed since last fever without the use of fever-reducing medications and improvement in symptoms; and,
    • At least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared
  2. If you are under self-isolation because you have lab confirmed COVID-19 AND you have not exhibited Coronavirus Symptoms:
    • 10 days have passed since the date of your first positive COVID-19 diagnostic test (assuming you have not subsequently developed symptoms since such positive test)
  3. If you are under self-quarantine/isolation because of potential exposure AND you have exhibited Coronavirus Symptoms:
    • At least 24 hours have passed since last fever without the use of fever-reducing medications and improvement in symptoms; and,
    • At least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared
  4. If you are under self-quarantine because of potential exposure to someone with lab-confirmed or diagnosed COVID-19 AND you have not exhibited Coronavirus Symptoms:
    • At least 10 days have passed since the beginning of self-quarantine (the date you had close contact), no symptoms have appeared, and you have had no further close contact with that individual or anyone else with COVID-19; or
    • At least 7 days have passed since the beginning of self-quarantine, no symptoms have appeared, and you have had a negative COVID PCR test done no sooner than 5 days after starting the self-quarantine.
    •  However:
      • If you live with someone with COVID-19 and have not been able to avoid continuous close contact with them, at least 10 days have passed since the person with COVID-19 has completed self-isolation (see #1 or #2 above)
      • If you live with someone with COVID-19 and have avoided continued contact with that household member, but you have had close contact with another household member who has COVID-19, at least 10 days have passed since the last close contact with this additional household member

Written approval is required before any UHCL community member may return to campus after self-quarantine or self-isolation.
