IF YOU TEST POSITIVE FOR COVID-19  

Individuals diagnosed with COVID-19 at an off-campus clinic or testing site are required to report to the University by filling out the Personal Diagnosis Form and are expected to self-isolate at an off-campus location until cleared by a medical professional. Personal Diagnosis Forms can be submitted at any time as contract tracing continues in the evenings and on the weekend. A member from the Health Services Contact Tracing Team will follow up to collect information. Students diagnosed in the health center do not need to complete a personal diagnosis form as Health Services will follow up with instructions and conduct contract tracing.
