Answers to your questions
If I test positive for COVID-19 or have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive, do I need to inform anyone?
Answer: Yes, students should notify Student Health Services. As with any illness, students are responsible for also informing their instructors when they miss class. Employees should inform their immediate supervisor and Human Resources. See more guidance for employees.
Do I need to have a COVID-19 test conducted before coming to campus?
Answer: Asymptomatic individuals are not required to have a test. Symptomatic individuals should consult with Student Health Services or a health care professional to determine if a test is advised.
How long should I quarantine?
Answer: You will need to stay in quarantine for 14 days from the date that you last had close contact with an infected person. We encourage you to reference the health guidelines webpage and the Quarantine Calculator for more information.

Will I be notified if a student in my class tests positive for COVID?
Answer: The University has measures in place to notify those individuals that meet criteria for a close contact. You can be proactive and assist in the process of contact tracing by making sure the University has your most up-to-date phone number and address on file, follow all seating instructions provided by faculty and by following all directional instruction/signage for entering and exiting a classroom and navigating the high-density areas of campus.
