Quarantine, isolation and testing positive for COVID-19

Quarantine and isolation

The university has been working closely with the Champaign-Urbana Public Health District (CUPHD) since this pandemic began, and we have quarantine and isolation plans and processes in place to help maximize safety and minimize the spread of COVID-19.
