What to do if you test positive for COVID-19
If you have COVID-19, you can spread the virus to others. Regardless of vaccination status, you should isolate from others when you have COVID-19, wear a mask and avoid contact with people who are at high risk of getting very sick.
- Isolate from others for a minimum of five (5) days AND until you are fever free for 24 hours and your symptoms are improving.
- Faculty and Staff should notify their immediate supervisor of their need to isolate and contact their primary care provider if additional assistance is needed for testing, treatment or to confirm a return to work date.
- Students should notify their professors that they will be absent from class.
- Students are strongly encouraged to isolate at home for their own comfort. If a residential student is unable to isolate at home, they must complete the Student Reporting Form to identify an isolation plan.
- During the isolation period, students are not permitted to attend class in person, participate in clubs/organizations/sports, eat in the Caf/Reuben’s, visit the HAC and other similar locations, to avoid transmission of the virus.
- Wear a mask through day 10 of testing positive.
