If it is determined that the student or employee has COVID-19, they should not come to campus and should submit a Self-Report Form and follow CDC isolation protocols. Read current CDC guidelines.
What happens after you submit a Self-Report form
Upon the completion of the self report form, you will receive an automated email notification outlining how long you must isolate and remain off campus. Notifications regarding your isolation and return date will be sent to faculty for students and supervisors for employees.

Employees should wear a mask or respirator around others at home, at work and in public through Day 10. Please note, the day of the positive test or symptoms is Day 0 and that the count for 5 days isolation begins the day after positive test/symptom onset.
