Isolation and quarantine

Policy

Students, faculty and staff may be directed by health officials to enter isolation or quarantine for health reasons and must follow state and local guidance. Fully vaccinated individuals no longer need to quarantine following COVID-19 exposure, unless they have symptoms.

Unvaccinated students, faculty, staff and visitors who are a close contact or who are traveling or returning to Kansas from a high-risk area must quarantine according to state and local guidance. Individuals subject to this quarantine will not attend in-person university programs or activities, including attending classes or returning to work. They should follow the self-quarantine guidance for care while at home provided by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.

Students, faculty and staff must meet specific conditions outlined in the COVID-19 exposure protocols before returning to in-person university programs or activities following isolation and quarantine.
