On-Campus Students Who Test Positive for COVID-19

Students who are living on campus and test positive to COVID-19, whether via rapid test or PCR test, will be required to isolate for a minimum of 5 days, but most will be required to isolate for 10 days, depending on their symptoms.

Most students will be able to complete this isolation in their own rooms, but some students may be moved to isolation housing. Be sure to always have prepared the things you will need to have on hand if you test positive to COVID-19 while living on campus.

All decisions regarding where you will isolate and for how long will be determined by the Brandeis Community Tracing Program (BCTP) in collaboration with the providers at the Student Health Center. Failure to comply with the instructions of the BCTP, Student Health Providers, or policies outlined on this website will result in disciplinary action through the Dean of Students Office.
