How will the Awosting Hall quarantine space work?
Awosting Hall will be kept unoccupied so it can accommodate residential students who must be quarantined on campus due to confirmed or suspected COVID-19, direct exposure to COVID-19, international or other travel where CDC recommends quarantine, or any other purpose as indicated by applicable CDC, State Department of Health, or Ulster County guidelines.
Residential students with a confirmed diagnosis or exposure who live in corridor-style housing will be relocated to Awosting (students may also elect to quarantine at home). Such students’ roommates will also be required to quarantine in Awosting.
Students with a confirmed diagnosis or exposure who live in suite-style housing may be able to quarantine in place if the quarantine building is full, because they are already self-contained and everyone within the suite will have been exposed.
While quarantined, residential students will be provided with a refrigerator/microwave, food, support, wellness checks, and laundry and trash services. Length of quarantine and conditions for return to campus activities will be determined by Student Health Service consistent with CDC and New York state guidelines.
Once students move out of quarantine, the space they occupied will be thoroughly cleaned.
