Types of Quarantine
County-Mandated Quarantine: Individuals that are identified as a close contact of an infected person are placed in county-mandated quarantine for 14 days and monitored for symptoms. If symptoms appear, the individual would be tested, placed in isolation, and if appropriate contact tracing of that individual would be undertaken.
Precautionary Quarantine: Individuals that were in close contact with a person being tested for cause (presenting symptoms consistent with COVID), will be placed in precautionary quarantine while the evaluation is being completed. During this time, the individual in precautionary quarantine will also be monitored for symptoms. If symptoms appear, the individual would be tested and placed in precautionary isolation.
Travel Quarantine: Individuals who travel to a restricted state as determined by New York state are required to self-quarantine in New York state or other non-restricted state for 14 days before they can circulate in the community or on campus. Before you travel out of state, review RIT’s travel advisory information and related FAQs.
