COVID-19 Contact Tracing

  • Those exempt are not subject to isolation or other restrictions based on being in close contact with a known infected person.
  • Those non-exempt are required to isolate from campus buildings other than applicable on-campus housing for 14 days from contact with an infected person. A negative test is required prior to returning to campus. 
  • It is strongly recommended that anyone who has close contact with a known infected person immediately use a face covering and take a test not less than three days from the last contact with the infected person.
  • UW-Green Bay has partnered with the Brown, Manitowoc, Marinette and Sheboygan County Departments of Health to perform contact tracing and tracking of infection. Employees from UW-Green Bay have been trained and reassigned to provide this tracing for the University Community.
  • In accordance with applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations any positive test will be communicated immediately to the applicable local health department.
  • The Office of COVID-19 Response will work in coordination with the local health department to provide required notice to those who may have had close contact with a person diagnosed with COVID-19.
  • Noticed individuals will be directed to stay home or in their living quarters and self-monitor for symptoms, and follow CDC guidance if symptoms develop.
  • In the event that there is a confirmed case of infection on any campus the Office of COVID-19 Response will determine if the nature of the contact places individuals at immediate risk of infection.
    • If there is an immediate risk of infection, the area(s) in which the person was present (classroom/workstation) may be closed until proper sanitation can be performed.
    • Individuals who may be at risk of exposure will be notified, noting that appropriate use of face coverings and physical distancing will mitigate most risk.
  • In the exceptional case where a classroom or operational area would need to be closed and individuals would need to isolate or quarantine based on exposure the instructor/supervisor, under the direction of the Office of COVID-19 response, will advise the class/employees of the length of the need to isolate from campus and the closure of the space.
    • If a closure were to occur, the instructor/supervisor will communicate with the students/employees when they will be able to resume class/work in the space.
