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 U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance.

Students, faculty, staff and visitors who are a close contact — excluding people who have had COVID-19 within the past three months — or who are traveling or returning to Kansas from a high-risk area must self-quarantine for 10 days without symptoms. 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.
