**Self-sequester = Leave room only to pick up meals, solo outdoor exercise, or urgent medical care.  Stay masked whenever you leave your room, including in shared bathrooms and outside.

***Students who have traveled by airplane, bus, or train from anywhere outside California are also strongly advised to follow these guidelines.
