The university says isolation is the separation of an individual who is positive for COVID-19 from others who are not sick. Students who test positive for COVID-19 must isolate for at least 10 days from the onset of symptoms. Last month, TCU reported just over 600 cases, most in the last week of August.  “The isolation rooms are designed for students who don’t have their own bedroom and bathroom in their own room,” said Sarah Kwidzinski, a junior accounting and finance double major and a resident assistant on the third floor of King Hall. “Our job hasn’t changed much, we still focus on making sure students are happy and comfortable in their dorms.”Read more: Hall directors get creative to help students cope in isolationAccording to the TCU housing website, the university provides students in isolation rooms with clean sheets and blankets for the bed. During the isolation period, the university provides two meals a day, laundry service, trash pick-up and an on-call system in case students need anything. Students bring their own towels, pillows and enough belongings for about 10 days.Craig Allen, director of Housing & Residence Life, said a housing employee updates the list of isolation rooms daily and sends it to TCU dining, which prepares the meals. This includes addressing special dietary needs such as vegan and vegetarian options. “On a typical day we deliver between 180-210 meals twice a day,” said Allen. “We have our coordinator who schedules our meal delivery crew made up of students and professional staff in order to get the meals delivered on time.”“TCU” actually stands for Texas Covid University— Moisés Acuña Gurrola (@historymeaux) September 1, 2020 Facebook + posts Welcome TCU Class of 2025 Braden Rouxhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/braden-roux/ 60 students start at TCU and UNTHSC’s new medical school Braden Roux Facebook Quarterback race still open heading into fall camp ReddIt Twitter A host of rookie Horned Frogs find roles in the NFL Previous articleEpisode 214 – Week 3 NFL, Week 4 CFBNext articleHall directors get creative to help students cope in isolation Braden Roux RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Linkedin Twitter World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history ReddIt Samuelson Hall is one of the residence halls that lines the Campus Commons.
