Effective Monday, February 15, the modified room quarantine period will cease. Residential students will transition to a campus quarantine environment by residential building. All students will be required to remain on campus, but will be allowed to move about the campus more freely. Please note: students will only be allowed to enter the residential building in which they reside and are not permitted to enter any other residential buildings. Students will be able to participate in outdoor activities as well as indoor physical activities and student events with some restrictions to keep residential groups separate.
