Households, Isolation, and Quarantine

Individuals living in the same apartment or housing unit will be considered a “household.” Consistent with public health guidance, in the event an occupant of a household shows symptoms of illness or tests positive for COVID-19, that individual will be expected to isolate. Other members of the apartment will be expected to quarantine unless they are showing no symptoms and meet one of the following criteria:

  • Received a booster dose
  • Received a second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine within the last 6 months
  • Received a Johnson & Johnson vaccine within the last 2 months

BYU has isolation and quarantine protocols in place for BYU students living in BYU On-Campus Housing. More information. Students who are instructed to isolate or quarantine should contact their professors to make arrangements to continue their coursework.

Disease Prevention

Members of each apartment should regularly assess their symptoms, practice proper hygiene and maintain adequate cleanliness to prevent disease transmission. Residents should bring disinfecting wipes and cleaners, masks, hand sanitizer and a thermometer.

BYU encourages students to not return to campus if they are currently in isolation, quarantine, or are symptomatic. Students should return to housing when it is safe for them, and their roommates, to do so.
