Did you test positive for COVID-19? All faculty, students, and staff should stay home, wear a mask, and immediately submit a Positive Case Form.

While we’re excited to be returning to normal activities on campus and in other aspects of daily life, it’s important to remember COVID-19 is still with us. We now have the tools and knowledge to help keep ourselves and our community healthy through a “self-managed care” approach:

  • Students, faculty, and staff will have access to free rapid tests when they have symptoms, or 5 days after close contact with a COVID-positive individual. Weekly surveillance testing is not required.
  • Positive test results must be reported via the confidential Positive Case Form, which will provide instructions on next steps. This replaces the Symptom Tracker.
  • Anyone who tests positive will isolate or quarantine at home or their residence hall.

Additional information is available on the Frequently Asked Questions page.

TIME-SENSITIVE: All students are asked to self-test 24 hours before arriving/returning to campus. Do not come to campus if you test positive. Stay home until you clear isolation. Anyone who tests positive should report their result via the Positive Case Form and follow the instructions on next steps.
