No, you are following guidelines from numerous health experts and state/local Public Health Agencies.

For anyone who is ill and taking online classes, please work with your instructor if you’re going to miss a required on-screen synchronized interaction.

To encourage sick individuals to stay away from campus, faculty, and supervisors are encouraged to provide flexibility for students and staff, as well as minimize any penalties for absence due to sickness. If you feel concerns about the faculty member’s approach, contact your Dean or the division office for support.
