RIT is not providing separate isolation and quarantine housing for the fall semester. Students in RIT housing will remain in their residence hall room or apartment except to pick up food, use the restroom, or attend a medical appointment. If you are not comfortable staying in your residence space, you may return home or to an alternative location via private transportation. In this case, it may be helpful to consider your temporary housing options before the start of the fall semester, so you are prepared should you become positive.
Tell roommates and close contacts you have COVID-19, so they can take proactive steps to monitor their health.
While in isolation, or if you are too ill to attend class, please contact your faculty directly to make up for missed work. Your secure message from the Student Health Center can serve as an acknowledgment of your isolation time if required.
Wear a well-fitted mask at all times except when eating, sleeping or using bathroom facilities (e.g., showering, brushing teeth). N95, KN95 and KF94 masks are among those that provide the greatest protection.
Clean shared spaces, such as bathrooms and kitchens, immediately after use.
