COVID-19 Protocols for Students & Employees

Eastern adheres to the guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

What should I do if I become ill, exhibit symptoms or think I have been exposed to COVID-19?

  1. If you have symptoms consistent with COVID-19, stay home and isolate yourself from family, friends and roommates as much as possible. If you develop symptoms while in class or on campus, go home or return to your residence hall room.

  2. Complete the COVID-19 Self-Reporting Form. Either the Office of Student Services or the Office of Human Resources will contact you to provide further guidance, testing or medical appointments and other resources. 

COVID-19 Testing is recommended for individuals who:

  • Are experiencing even mild symptoms of COVID-19 infection, including the symptoms listed above.
  • Had close contact with a person who has COVID-19, such as being closer than 6 feet for at least 15 minutes, living with or caring for someone with COVID-19, or sharing utensils, kissing or being coughed or sneezed on by the person. You should complete the COVID-19 Self-Reporting Form as soon as you know that you’ve had a close contact. You’ll also need to self-isolate right away and be tested 7 days after the suspected date of your exposure. 

What happens next?

  • Based on your situation, Eastern officials will help determine if you need to isolate/quarantine, schedule a COVID-19 test or seek a medical appointment. 
  • If you live on campus in a residence hall, the process for arranging your isolation/quarantine space will be initiated. You will order your meals with the Office of Student Services for delivery. 
  • If you are an employee, notify your supervisor that you are in isolation/quarantine and work remotely if possible. 
  • You will be asked to help identify close contacts and assist the Health Department and Eastern officials with contact tracing. The following chart outlines the difference between isolation and quarantine, as well as the timelines for each.
