CHECKING IN

GENERAL INFORMATION

– Remain in your designated isolation or quarantine assignment unless you have a medical appointment or there is a building emergency that results in an evacuation—you are not permitted to leave or have direct contact with individuals outside of isolation/quarantine unless it is an emergency. 
 
– If you have upcoming appointments, contact your healthcare provider and request a telehealth or virtual appointment, if possible. If you need University Housing to help arrange transportation to an appointment at the University Health Center, please contact hsgcovid@uga.edu in advance of your appointment. 
 
– For any emergencies, call 9-1-1. 
 
– Monitor your symptoms carefully. If your symptoms get worse or do not improve, contact your healthcare provider. University Health Center contact information is below.  

– Ensure you are getting plenty of rest and staying hydrated. 
 
– Stay active and engaged in quarantine or isolation! Check out the Engagement and Physical Activities tab for virtual events and the opportunity to opt into free on-demand virtual fitness classes from Ramsey (Rec Sports). Being sure to stand or walk occasionally or engage in other physical activities helps alleviate the risk of thrombosis. 

– Always cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow. 
 
– Wash your hands often with warm soapy water for at least 20 seconds. 
 
– No visitors or guests are permitted in your space during your isolation or quarantine period.

CHECKING OUT

– You must checkout by 9 a.m. after your isolation or quarantine period.

– Drop your keys in the green metal key boxes located at the bottom of every staircase and outside of the lobby.
