If you have tested positive for COVID-19 Please review isolation guidelines

DOH & CDC Isolation Guidelines

If you are a close contact to a positive COVID-19 case please review the CDC quarantine guidelines.

CDC Quarantine GUIDELINES
As recommended by PA Department of Health, Centers of Disease Control and World Health Organization those who tested positive for COVID-19 should NOT be retested within 90 days. Experts note that “Since the PCR test is detecting nucleic acid of COVID-19, a positive test after the 10-day isolation is likely detecting nucleic acid of dead virus”

What should I do if I think I've been exposed to COVID-19?

  1. Immediately self-quarantine. Stay home and stay separate from others.
  2. Contact LHU COVID Coordinator (570-220-2548, jma351@lockhaven.edu).
  3. If symptoms worsen, call 911 and reach out to your healthcare provider.

What should I do if I test positive for COVID-19 or develop symptoms consistent with COVID-19?

If you test positive for COVID-19: do not go to class, immediately isolate from others, and e-mail the COVID Coordinator with your details. A member of our COVID team will call you to discuss isolation housing and food needs in addition to excused absence from class.

If you are experiencing symptoms consistent with COVID-19: do not go to class, stay home, e-mail the COVID Coordinator with your details, and arrange to be tested for COVID-19 ASAP. A member of our COVID team will call you to discuss isolation housing and food needs in addition to excused absence from class.

If you have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, please answer the following questions:

Have you tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 90 days?

If you have tested positive during the past 90 days, you do not need to quarantine unless you are experiencing symptoms. Please continue to mask up and make choices that are in the best interest of the LHU family. If you develop symptoms, stay home and arrange to be tested for COVID-19 ASAP.

If you have not tested positive for COVID-19 during the past 90 days, are you up to date on vaccines?

If you are up to date (COVID-19 vaccine plus booster, if eligible), you do not need to quarantine unless you are experiencing symptoms. Please mask up at all times while around others for 10 days and monitor yourself for symptoms. Please e-mail the COVID Coordinator to discuss next steps if you are in need of additional information/assistance. If you develop symptoms at any time, stay home and arrange to be tested for COVID-19 ASAP.

If you are not up to date on COVID-19 vaccines (not yet vaccinated, not yet boosted, if eligible), you will be required to quarantine for 5 days and mask up at all times while around others for the 5 days after your quarantine ends. Do not go to class. Please e-mail the COVID Coordinator to discuss quarantine housing and food needs in addition to excused absence from class. If you develop symptoms at any time, stay home and arrange to be tested for COVID-19 ASAP.

How is case investigation and contact tracing conducted on LHU's campus?

  1. Contacts are individuals who have been within 6 feet of a positive case for a cumulative total of 15 minutes within a 24-hour period).
  2. The contact tracer obtains a list of their contacts – the people they have been in close contact with in the 48 hours prior to the presentation of symptoms or a positive test result until the present.
  3. Each contact is notified that they have been listed as a close contact by someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 and that they should quarantine for 5 days per CDC regulations and protocol. The COVID Coordinator works to facilitate a safe isolation or quarantine environment, arranging quarantine/isolation housing and no contact meal delivery as needed.
