Glossary

Quarantine

Quarantine is used to keep someone who might have been exposed to COVID-19 and/or has COVID-19-like symptoms away from others.

Isolation

Isolation is used to separate people who have tested positive for COVID-19 from people who are not infected.

*COVID-19 testing results are included in the Stevens County data provided to the Minnesota Department of Health.

Case Totals

  • These data are collected by the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) as part of routine infectious disease reporting. In Minnesota, case reporting is required by healthcare providers and laboratories.
  • Case totals provided by MDH include those who were tested at area healthcare facilities.
  • Individuals with positive COVID-19 test results reported to MDH are asked to voluntarily self-report their University of Minnesota Morris affiliation to be counted in these totals. Not all individuals who have an association with the University of Minnesota Morris may have disclosed their affiliation.

On Campus Activity During Window of Infectiousness and Contact Tracing

  • All reported cases are interviewed by a public health representative to determine the infectious window period. They are also interviewed about their activities during that time to determine the need for contact tracing. Activities defined by MDH as “being on campus” include
    • Working on campus,
    • Attending any University sponsored event,
    • Using any campus facility, or
    • Visiting someone in campus housing. 
  • Persons in close contact with someone with COVID-19 (defined as closer than 6 feet for 15 minutes or more) are notified of exposure by public health representatives, asked to quarantine for 14 days, and are offered testing. Testing results, however, do not impact the need for quarantine.

Case Address Information

  • Address data are collected at the time of testing and confirmed by public health representatives during an interview. 
  • MDH defines “living on campus” as self-reporting an address considered to be University-owned housing. 
  • Per our campus COVID-19 response plan, Health Service works with students to review their isolation and quarantine needs and to support adherence to public health precautions. Students in University housing are offered dedicated isolation and quarantine spaces as part of their housing contracts.
