Face Masks / Coverings
Starting August 10th, face coverings/masks will be required for all employees and students in campus buildings when others are present and at outdoor events designated “Mask Required”, regardless of vaccination status. Face coverings/masks are required to fit over your nose and under your chin.
Face coverings/mask will not be required in the following circumstances:
- Outside when physical distancing of six-feet can be maintained
- While alone in an assigned office (note: does not include conference rooms, break rooms, cubicle settings or shared environments, including vehicles)
- While alone in a vehicle, if the vehicle is not regularly shared with others
- While eating or drinking, while following safety guidance
When in doubt, please use a face covering/mask. Employees and students are required to have a face covering/mask available at all times, even if the circumstances do not require it to be worn (e.g. when alone in an assigned office).
As with our previous guidelines for our campus community during the pandemic, these updated protocols are subject to change. The State of Wisconsin and Waukesha County have seen a steady increase in reported positive cases of COVID-19. If that changes, we will revisit our protocols and adjust accordingly.
Students experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 must refrain from coming to campus until receiving a negative test at a health care facility or community testing site.
Failure to Comply with University Policies
Failure to comply with university directives, protocols, or procedures intended to limit the spread of or exposure to viruses, illnesses and other contagions: Violating or disregarding directives, protocols, or procedures enacted by the university to protect the health and safety of the university community.
In the event of a positive or suspected COVID-19 diagnosis, or close contact identification, students are required to cooperate fully with the University’s notification, contact tracing, quarantine and isolation protocols.
Students will be required to complete regular mandatory testing as instructed by university officials.
Carroll University may request or require a student to leave campus housing when that resident’s continued presence in the housing community poses a health or safety risk for community members. This may be determined due to identified symptoms or exposure to an individual with confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis. Residential students are required to comply with requests from Residence Life and Housing to leave their assigned space due to COVID-19.
Students may not be present in any campus facility outside of quarantine or isolation while they are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 (or other respiratory illnesses), such as cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fever, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, muscle pain or body aches, headache or chills until they have received clearance by a university official.
Not all residential rooms or halls are appropriate for self-quarantine or self-isolation due to shared restrooms or inadequate facilities. Therefore, in situations where a student is required or recommended to self-quarantine or self-isolate, students may not be permitted to continue residing in their original contracted residential space and will be provided alternative housing arrangements as needed and/or available. Removal from campus housing to isolate or quarantine does not constitute a termination of a residential student’s housing contract.
Any individual who violates an order to quarantine/isolate or the terms of quarantine/isolation may be subject to disciplinary action including housing probation or termination including loss of deposit, university probation or suspension.
