Quarantine & Isolation


The CDC recently updated their quarantine and isolation guidance. Our local health authority, the Lawrence Douglas County Health Department (LDCHD), followed their lead by updating quarantine and isolation requirements for Lawrence on January 10th. For details on the latest public health orders, visit the LDCHD website here: https://ldchealth.org/. KU adheres to the health safety protocol issued by the LDCHD. 

Additional quick reference guides are available on this page. You can reference the exposure decision tree below for guidance on what to do if you think you have been exposed to COVID, or find precise instructions for your specific set of circumstances by completing the online health assessment form. Here is a link to that tool: KU COVID-19 Health Assessment Form
