In accordance with the WISH COVID-19 Policy for Residents (PDF), please determine your isolation housing plan and then use the open response field below to outline your plan of action your upcoming semester in the South Carolina Washington Semester Program (SCWSP).
“Each resident must identify and establish access to appropriate Isolation housing separate from the resident’s unit or assigned space in WISH housing (“Isolation Housing”) should you test positive or show symptoms of COVID-19 while awaiting test results. Such Isolation Housing should comply with any requirements or recommendations of local health department officials or local government officials. If you have been or become in close contact with someone with COVID-19, you may Quarantine in your WISH Housing provided you (1) are fully vaccinated, (2) are and remain asymptomatic, and (3) obtain a negative COVID-19 viral test (e.g., antigen, NAAT or PCR test) taken at least five days after the date you were exposed. For the health and safety of other residents, if you test positive with COVID-19, you are subject to Isolation measures and must Isolate in the Isolation Housing and not in WISH housing.”
Example 1: If I were to need quarantine and isolation housing, my parents will pick me up in D.C. and drive me to my home in Sumter, SC. I will quarantine/isolate in a local hotel until my parents can pick me up in D.C. If for some reason I were unable to get home to SC, I will stay in a local hotel for the duration of my quarantine and isolation.
Example 2: If I were to need quarantine and isolation housing, my friend will pick me up in D.C. and drive me to her apartment in Maryland. I will stay with her at her apartment in Maryland for the duration of my quarantine and isolation and then return to D.C.
Example 3: I plan to stay in a local hotel for the duration of my isolation period. I have researched possible hotel options.
