COVID-19 positive persons are isolated to keep them from those who are healthy from those who are healthy. Persons may be eligible to end isolation as long as they are asymptomatic (except loss of taste/smell which can persist for some time) on the following schedule based on the test collection date:
- Employees- 10 days
- Students - 14 days
Quarantine separates and restricts the movement of persons who were exposed due to close contact or other means to ensure they do not become ill or infect others. NCCU/Apex Solutions will use the following protocol to provide quarantine and isolation instructions including a tentative return to work/class date.
If you test positive off campus your county of residence or a healthcare professional may provide a return to work date based on CDC recommendations. However, all employees and students are required to report their test results or symptoms to NCCU using the NCCU COVID-19 Self Report Portal to be advised of a release date from quarantine or isolation that conforms to the campus protocol.
