COVID-19 Reporting

Reporting Protocols

The COVID-19 Response Team has established a protocol for responding to positive and prospective cases on campus; this process is in partnership with several offices and departments. These guides are designed to educate the campus community on the steps involved in this process to ensure that accurate, timely, and transparent information is relayed to the campus community. As new public health guidance is released, these guides are subject to change at any time.

The following flowchart shows what steps the COVID-19 Response Team will take after someone calls the COVID-19 reporting hotline or submits the online reporting form. The team has protocols for the person reporting (Case), including finding out whether the Case has had any close contact with others. Protocols for close contacts of the Case are shown under Contact.

  • If symptoms subside within 5 days, re-test on day 6. The first day begins on the first day of symptom onset, or the day of the positive test result. (Whichever day comes first.)
  • If negative on day 6, use the Return to Campus form to upload negative result before returning to campus. Continue to wear a mask indoors until 10 days from onset or initial positive test.

1. What changes will I see?

On-campus employees who receive COVID-19 positive diagnosis will also receive comprehensive information on benefits available to them.
