Updated CDC Guidelines for Quarantining and Isolating

The CDC recently updated its guidelines for quarantining and isolating. We delayed implementing the new guidelines, because we expected the CDC to release more specific guidance for institutions of higher education. After consulting with state and local health officials, we have decided to move forward with the new guidelines. When the CDC does release guidelines for higher education, we will review them and may update our protocols accordingly. We are sharing some highlights of the new guidelines below, but the guidance is constantly changing, and you can find the most up-to-the-minute decisions on the CDC website.
