“Students must create an electronic health records account in order to schedule their arrival testing through the college”
A month is basically a third of a semester, isn’t it? Doesn’t that seem a bit excessive?

Yale ignores science, mandates ONE MONTH quarantine for students returning to campus
Yale University released a new COVID-19 plan for students’ arrival to campus, calling for a month-long quarantine during the spring 2021 semester.
A Jan. 14 message from Dean of Student Affairs Melanie Boyd outlined the school’s reopening plans for students living both on and off-campus during the spring 2021 semester. These new guidelines lay out a three-phase plan, consisting of testing and quarantining for a month after arrival on campus.
In fall 2020, the school’s students were mandated to quarantine in their residential colleges for 14 days upon arrival to campus. However, these new guidelines for spring 2021 consist of a month-long quarantine that will occur in three phases consecutively.
In Boyd’s message, she instructed students to register for a move-in date and time on either January 28 or 29, but students with special permission may move in on a later date. Students are also required to take a pre-arrival COVID test that is sent by mail to their current residence, which must be negative before they can return.
The first phase of Yale’s new plan involves the pre-arrival test, scheduling a move-in time, and subsequently scheduling an arrival COVID test. Students will then be required to stay in their suites until they receive a negative result from the arrival test which may take between 24-36 hours, according to Boyd.
Students must create an electronic health records account in order to schedule their arrival testing through the college, and they must schedule the test for their move-in time as this is the first thing they will do when returning to campus. After the semester begins all students will be assigned to a twice-weekly testing schedule.
