Options for student COVID-19 testing and quarantine, including hotel accommodations
RIT is providing additional details regarding quarantine and testing for students as we draw closer to our first day of classes, August 19. The guidance includes options for compliance with the 14-day quarantine mandated by the New York State Travel Advisory or the CDC.
Today, RIT is launching two new tools to monitor and prevent COVID-19 in the university community.
The RIT Daily Health Screen is a website with a call-in option. All RIT students, faculty, and staff are required to complete and submit the health screen to help monitor the overall health of the community. This applies to everyone whether they are working remotely or taking online classes and is required on weekends and vacation days.
All university employees are required to view an online training course that focuses on their role in keeping the community safer against the spread of COVID-19. There is also an online training that students are strongly encouraged to take. It includes awareness of how COVID-19 is transmitted, related symptoms, a list of appropriate personal protective equipment, and what do to in case of illness.
The show will go on – in a different way
While COVID-19 means performing arts offerings at RIT may look and feel different from what’s happened in the past, RIT is committed to making sure students still have safe and healthy ways to engage.
Wastewater testing in the RIT-owned residence halls and apartment complexes is one way RIT plans to monitor the presence of COVID-19 on campus, a method that can detect the virus before people even develop symptoms.
Hear what RIT faculty say they learned from last spring semester that will help make the online learning experience even better this fall.
