Marquette University is the latest college campus in Wisconsin to issue a quarantine for one of its residence halls.
In an online post from the university, the around 373 people living in Schroeder Hall are being asked to stay in their rooms from 10 p.m. Monday, September 14, to 10 p.m. September 28.
The reason is due to recent COVID-19 testing finding three-percent of those living in the dorm are positive with the virus.
The decision is also made with the coordination of the Milwaukee Health Department.
Key points the university is passing along to Schroeder Hall residents include:
- Students will need to conduct daily COVID checks and report any symptoms.
- Students are not encouraged to leave the dorm hall and return home. Anyone who does will need to stay off campus for 14 days and provide proof they have tested negative for COVID-19 within three days before returning to campus.
- Those living in Schroeder Hall who have not been tested for COVID-19 will need to get a test. A temporary testing site will be held outside the hall Wednesday, Thursday and Friday this week.
- Those who have tested positive will be moved to isolated-designated spaces on campus.
