Isolation Overview

Two students wearing face coverings.

Individuals who are positive for COVID-19, will be required to isolate. People who are isolated must remain separated from others for a minimum of 5 days since symptoms first appeared and resolution of fever for at least 24 hours, without the use of fever-reducing medications, and with improvements of any other symptoms (e.g., cough, shortness of breath).

On campus isolation options will not be available to students residing off-campus. It is important that you prepare in advance should you need to complete isolation.

What To Expect

It is important for you to understand that as a student living independently, you will be responsible for costs related to services such as meal or grocery delivery. We have identified local partners who can offer discounts for Ithaca College students for these services. If a student is having financial difficulty you can apply for funds through the Dean of Students Office, here.
