Morehouse School of Medicine COVID-19 Protocol

Isolation in Place

Our current isolation and exposure procedures are below. Clinical-facing individuals at offsite locations (Grady, Crestview, CHOA, VA, and other clinical sites) that may test positive or have an exposure will follow the return-to-work procedures of their site. All others, including MHC workers, will adhere to the protocols below.

Isolation Procedures

If you test positive for COVID-19:

  1. Isolate for five days.
  2. If you have no symptoms, take a test on Day 6.
  3. If a negative result is achieved and you have not had any symptoms in 24 hours, return to work/school onsite.
  4. If you remain symptomatic, you should delay testing until you are 24 hours without symptoms.

Exposure Procedures

If you are exposed to a person with COVID-19 (symptomatic or confirmed) or have a household member that is symptomatic or positive:

  1. Wear your mask and continue coming onsite to work/school
  2. If you develop any signs or symptoms, you should stay away from campus and get tested.
  3. If a negative result is achieved, you can continue coming onsite and monitor yourself.
  4. For the safety of those around you, you should continue to wear your mask.

Students should self-report positive COVID-19 test results on AUCC SHWC COVID-19 Self-Report form.

Test kits are available for symptomatic students at Student Health and Wellness Clinic (455 Lee St SW 3rd floor)
