If you are up to date with vaccines, you do not need to quarantine. However, you are asked to follow these guidelines for the 10 days following your last exposure to the positive person:
- Notify firstname.lastname@example.org that one of your household contacts has tested positive.
- Pay close attention to how you’re feeling every day. If you don’t feel well, stay away from others and consult UHS by calling 609-258-3141.
- Where possible, keep some physical distance between yourself and others, including in classrooms and vehicles. Open windows when you can.
- Wear a face covering consistently inside, except when sleeping or eating. Maintain physical distance (6 feet or 2 meters) from others when eating, both while inside and outside.
- You can remove your face covering in a shared bathroom when showering, brushing teeth, etc., but put it back on right after.
- You can visit an on-campus dining hall to eat, but should wear a face covering when not eating.
- Complete the Daily Symptom Check either through the TigerSafe app or through this URL before you leave your residence every day during this monitoring period. If the results of your Daily Symptom Check say that you should stay home, stay in your room, and notify us by email at email@example.com.
- Submit an extra saliva sample to the asymptomatic testing program in this upcoming week.
- If you are not able to physically distance from your household contact while they are in isolation, you should submit an extra saliva sample for the two weeks after your household contact tested positive and pay close attention to whether you feel any symptoms during the entirety of their isolation period, plus another 10 days after their isolation is complete.
If you are not vaccinated, you will need to quarantine for at least 10 days from your last day of exposure to this household contact. This means that if the positive person is not able to be fully physically distanced from you during their isolation, you must begin quarantine during their isolation period, and then for 10 days following their release from isolation (as that's your last exposure date to the positive person). Review the quarantine fact sheet (.docx) for students to see what is and is not allowed during your quarantine period.
- Notify firstname.lastname@example.org that a household contact of yours has tested positive. If you are concerned about how you are feeling, reach out to UHS at 609-258-3141. Call ahead – do not just show up.
- If your household contact does not go to UHS for medical care (for example, they are a roommate that does not attend Princeton, or a family member who is not associated with the University), notify email@example.com that your household contact tested positive and that you are under self-quarantine. There is no need to notify others.
