Understanding Carolina’s quarantine and isolation procedures

Part of our effort to limit the spread of COVID-19 on our campus is our robust Carolina Together Testing Program as well as our plans for when students do get sick or exposed to COVID-19. Learn more about our quarantine and isolation process.

We are committed to doing everything we can to limit the spread of COVID-19 on our campus to keep our entire community safe as students return to Chapel Hill.

Part of our effort to make that happen is our robust Carolina Together Testing Program as well as our plans for when students do get sick or exposed to COVID-19.

Students who have tested positive for COVID-19 will be required to isolate, while those who are considered a close contact with a person who tested positive will be required to quarantine for 14 days. This means that students who live off-campus will be required to stay home, and Tar Heels who live on-campus will move temporarily to a quarantine or isolation room.

We know that this can be stressful, but Student Affairs, Campus Health and Carolina Housing are available to support both on- and off-campus students.

“These have been stressful and uncertain times for so many of you,” said Suzie Baker, Carolina’s assistant dean of students. “Our goal at Carolina remains giving you the best educational experience possible as safely as we can. With your assistance, we can continue to achieve that goal, even under these most unusual circumstances.”
