If you are identified as having close contact with someone who shows symptoms of or who has tested positive for COVID-19, you will:
- Be quarantined for 14 days. In most cases you will be moved to isolation housing for quarantine.
- Notify your professors that you will be switching to studying online. You do not have to provide a reason. You may return to in-person classes following the 14-day quarantine period.
Students in quarantine will use a daily symptom-checker app and receive referrals for on-campus resources. University staff will deliver three meals a day.
Removal From Assigned Space
At any time, Bucknell may request or require you to leave campus when your continued presence in the housing community poses a health or safety risk for community members. Residential students are required to comply with requests from the University to leave their assigned space due to COVID-19 or other public health emergencies. Failure to do so is a violation of the Student Code of Conduct and may subject you to emergency removal from your assigned space.
Not all residential rooms or halls are appropriate for isolation or quarantine. In those situations where a student is informed they must isolate or quarantine, students may not be permitted to continue residing in their residential space and will be provided alternative housing arrangements as needed. Removal from a residence hall room to isolate or quarantine does not constitute a termination of your housing contract.
