Thursday afternoon, Clemson University sent a message to parents from University Vice President Chris Miller regarding 'isolation and quarantine procedures' for the school.

The message was meant to provide details about new protocol for isolating and quarantining Clemson students to parents of these students.

The opening message reads as follows:

Clemson Families,
I hope this note finds you well. I want you to know I have the utmost concern for your student’s health and well-being. Some of our students have recently received the unfortunate news they either tested positive for COVID-19 or were exposed to someone who contracted the virus. We know they may be feeling confused, frustrated and even a bit anxious about what’s next. Those are natural reactions to feel during what has been the most challenging time in my 30 years of higher education.
Returning to in-person instruction and on-campus residential experiences for our students was never going to be an easy task. In fact, I maintained from the very beginning the Clemson Experience would look and feel vastly different this Fall. I am so proud of our team in Student Affairs and our many campus partners who have displayed an unyielding commitment to carrying out our academic mission in a way that is both thoughtful and deliberate.
But one thing remains true: at Clemson, we are a family, and family takes care of one another. We are here to support your student throughout this journey.
Our team has compiled this comprehensive guide to assist students and families during the transition to isolation or quarantine housing and make their stay as comfortable and seamless as possible. If you have additional concerns or questions you cannot find in this document, please do not hesitate to reach out to the many resources provided or email me at
Please know we are doing everything we can to protect and preserve the health, safety and welfare of our students, faculty, staff and guests by mitigating further spread of COVID-19. I look forward to our students’ healthy return from isolation or quarantine and to a wonderful Fall semester together.It then leads into a detailed document explaining the protocol the school will be following when a student tests positive for COVID-19.
