Quarantine
Rogers State University no longer requires screenings based upon exposure and does not issue guidance on quarantine due to exposure. Consistent with past practices, if a student or employee receives quarantine guidance from their healthcare provider RSU will honor the CDC guidance for quarantine due to exposure.

Isolation
Students and employees who test positive for COVID-19 should immediately isolate and seek the advice of their primary care physician for guidance on health management. Students and employees who have tested positive for COVID-19 should file a report by completing the form on the “COVID-19” tab on MyRSU (login required).

On-Campus Housing
Students living in on-campus housing who have experienced a known exposure, are symptomatic or have tested positive for COVID-19 should complete the form on the “COVID-19” tab on MyRSU (login required) and immediately notify their Resident Assistant (RA). Students will have the option of completing their quarantine and/or isolation either off-campus or by moving into a single on-campus housing unit. 

Return to Class or Work
Upon reporting a positive case, individuals will receive instruction on returning to class or work. Individuals will be cleared to return to campus following five days of isolation and must wear a mask for the first five days upon returning to campus when indoors or around others. 

Students and employees who have tested positive for COVID-19 should file a report by completing the form on the “COVID-19” tab on MyRSU (login required). Individuals who test positive for COVID-19 should immediately isolate and seek the advice of their primary care physician for guidelines on health management, quarantine and clearance to return to school or work. Students and employees who are sick or experiencing COVID-19 symptoms should stay at home and communicate their absence with their professors or supervisors.

Rogers State University remains operational with in-person classes at regular capacity university-wide for the spring 2022 semester. All campuses are open to the public and third parties may host events in university facilities. This site serves as a centralized, evolving resource for campus operations. Please visit frequently for the latest information.

COVID-19 UPDATE: Masking Expectation to Take Effect January 18

Due to the rising number of active cases reported across all three campuses and taking into consideration the CDC’s current guidance on masking, and the current COVID-19 pandemic in Oklahoma, masking will be expected in all indoor settings for all faculty, staff, students and visitors at each Rogers State University campus. The expectation goes into effect on Tuesday, January 18 as operations resume following the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.

This measure seeks to promote the health and well-being of all members of the RSU community while preserving the in-person educational experience. This measure is subject to change. The COVID-19 Taskforce will continue to monitor ongoing developments and public health recommendations.

RSU publishes weekly positive case counts. These counts can be accessed by students and employees by visiting the “COVID-19” tab on MyRSU (login required) and selecting “COVID-19 Data” on the page submenu.

Mask Distribution

RSU strongly recommends the use of paper surgical style KN95 or N95 masks. Masks must cover the nose and mouth. KN95 masks will be available at each campus in the following locations.
