Isolation housing on campus

    Hi all, is anyone else considering providing isolation housing?  Our community does not have a location for people to go if they need isolated (I am defining isolation as having been diagnosed with COVID-19, or has symptoms and knows they have been or likely was exposed).  We have students on campus who are homeless or are unable to go home because travel has been closed.  If one of them gets COVID-19 we feel they should be isolated.  How are other schools handling this?  Are you provided meals in some way?  What about medical care?

    Thanks all and I hope you all are hanging in there.
