Type of Test and Test Results

Contact Tracing will continue throughout the summer.
If anyone in the Carroll community is identified as having been exposed to the COVID-19 through contact tracing, they will be referred for testing by the Waukesha County Department of Public Health or their health provider.
- Contract tracing is a core disease control activity, which begins with those who have tested positive for COVID-19.
- The student will receive a call from the Waukesha County Department of Public Health or someone from the University's COVID-19 Response Team. The student will identify persons who have had direct exposure to them during the period of transmission, which begins two days before the onset of symptoms.
- Contacts will be notified of their possible exposure, advised to quarantine, monitor for symptoms, and then tested for infection. The name of the COVID-19 positive student will not be revealed to those to whom they may have been exposed. Any information the student shares with the contact tracer, personal or medical, is kept confidential.
- Carroll strongly encourages students to "Answer the Call to Slow the Spread." Carroll will be kept safer by cooperating with contact tracing.
Isolation is required if a student test positive for COVID-19 or has symptoms and is awaiting test results. Students who are living in Carroll housing should plan to go home to isolate themselves when it is safe to do so. A student can be released from isolation when criteria outlined by the CDC are met.
Quarantine is required if a student is in close contact with a person that has been tested positive for COVID-19. Student’s living in Carroll housing should plan to go home to quarantine when it is safe to do so. A student will be released from quarantine when the criteria outlined by the CDC and Waukesha County Public Health Department are met. The CDC and Waukesha County Public Health Department currently follow the guidelines below, which can also be found on the CDC and Waukesha County Public Health Department websites: The CDC currently recommends a quarantine period of 14 days. However, based on local circumstances and resources, the following options to shorten quarantine are acceptable alternatives:
- The quarantine can end after Day 10 without testing and if no symptoms have been reported during daily monitoring.
- When diagnostic testing resources are sufficient and available, then quarantine can end after Day 7 if a diagnostic specimen tests negative and if no symptoms were reported during daily monitoring. The specimen may be collected and tested within 48 hours before the time of planned quarantine discontinuation (e.g., in anticipation of testing delays), but quarantine cannot be discontinued earlier than after Day 7.
- Carroll University will utilize the current CDC and Waukesha County Public Health quarantine guidelines. Students must meet all requirements set by Carroll University, including appropriate symptom monitoring and submission of proof and appropriate testing, to be cleared for a shortened quarantine period.
Carroll University officials will decide, confirm, and approve all quarantine timelines of students. Failure to meet Carroll University’s requirements can result in a student not having a shortened quarantine timeline.
Quarantine and Isolation Living Arrangements
- Students who live on campus and are expected to quarantine or isolate will be given the option to complete their quarantine or isolation period at home or in an on-campus residence provided by Carroll University. We recommend students think about these options before returning to campus so they are prepared to decide if they are asked to quarantine or isolate during the spring semester.
- Commuter students will need to quarantine or isolate themselves at their off-campus residence.
An individual will be considered to have had close contact if meeting any of the following criteria:
- Direct physical contact with a person (e.g. hug, kiss, handshake, high-five).
- Being within six (6) feet of a person(s) who has tested positively for more than 15 minutes.
- Direct contact with any respiratory secretions (e.g. coughed/sneezed on, contact with dirty tissue, sharing a drinking source, food, towel, or other personal items).
- Overnight stays for at least one night in a household with the person(s).
