Faculty & Staff COVID-19 Reporting

Reporting Infected, Suspected or Close Contact with known infected individual Cases

The University requests that all faculty and staff who become infected, suspected or exposed-close contact under the definitions noted below self-report utilizing the COVID-19 Case Report to the Office of Covid-19 Response. In addition, if any employee of the University receives a first-hand report of someone who is infected, suspected or exposed-close contact, they should be referred immediately to the Office of COVID-19 Response and the recipient of the report should complete the COVID-19 Case Report.

Upon submission of the report, the individual who is infected, suspected or exposed-close contact will receive an email along with additional guidance and next steps. If the employee is scheduled to be on campus they should notify their supervisor. If an employee originally submits a COVID-19 Case Report for a suspected case or exposure-close contact to COVID-19 and later tests positive for infection, they should report as soon as they are able to the Office of COVID-19 response that they have a medically confirmed case of COVID-19. The Office of COVID-19 Response will monitor active cases to ensure compliance with procedures listed below.
