I am a student. How much should I limit socialization with others?

It is vital that students socialize closely only with roommates, if possible. Students should avoid having friends over and avoid close socialization with people outside of their immediate household. When students do go out, they should wear a mask and maintain social distance. Students are encouraged to engage in outdoors activities, such as walking, hiking or biking, while following distancing and masking recommendations. These steps, though difficult, can slow the spread of the virus and make a real difference.
