All students who test positive for COVID-19 are required to isolate for 10 days as recommended by CDC and Duke medical advisors.

  • Students who reside on-campus in Duke housing will be moved to an isolation facility on campus. 
  • Students who reside off-campus must isolate in their own residence.

Students who are identified by contact tracing will be subject to more frequent testing for the period after their exposure but are no longer required to quarantine as recommended by CDC.

All students who are isolated due to a positive COVID-19 test are monitored by Duke Student Health.
