In these uncertain times, the possibility exists that your child may test positive, and have to leave his or her dorm for a quarantine location. It’s probably a VERY GOOD idea to have a pre-packed quarantine bag in his or her closet. It would be so much easier to ask a roommate to grab “the blue Nike bag in my closet and my laptop” than to try to figure out what he or she will want/need for two weeks.

  • Extra cell phone charger
  • List of important peoples’ phone numbers written out,
  • List of any allergies
  • 2 or more complete changes of comfy clothes: sweats, PJ Pants, T’s, Fuzzy Socks
  • Fleece throw (take the tiniest one in the house and squish it into an XL Baggie, then force the extra air out.)
  • Thermometer
  • Body Lotion/baby oil
  • Feminine Hygiene,
  • Toothbrush, Toothpaste,
  • Shampoo/Conditioner,
