Students who are awaiting COVID-19 test results (due to symptoms, a clinical referral and/or contact tracing) are required to physically quarantine in their residence hall room or at home, as directed by the Office of Community Living, the Center for Health & Wellness and/or local and state health officials.

Students who have received a positive COVID-19 test result are required to physically isolate at home or in a space designated by the College, as directed by the Office of Community Living, the Center for Health & Wellness and/or local and state health officials.

The College will designate specific living spaces for use by students who have been directed to isolate. The location of isolation will be determined by the Vice President for Student Life. The location will ensure the student will be in a single room with access to a restroom that has been specifically designated for students in isolation. Students who are symptomatic or clinically confirmed and awaiting test results will be asked to self-quarantine in their room.

Students living in Marietta College housing will be eligible for the College’s isolation housing. Students living in privately owned sorority houses will also be eligible for the College’s isolation spaces. Students who live off campus for the duration of their isolation will be asked to meet certain health requirements before returning to campus.

A student in isolation housing will be supported by the Office of Student Life to guarantee the student is connected to all necessary College services (e.g., Counseling Services, dining, etc.). To remain in College housing, students in isolation must follow all directives of the health authorities.

These recommendations and requirements will be updated as new information about the virus develops and we monitor and evaluate data. (last updated July 12, 2020)
