COVID-19 testing helps to limit the spread of the coronavirus while also facilitating early diagnosis and rapid treatment.

All students and employees should self-report COVID-19 positive test results at the time the test was taken, and regardless of testing location or if an at-home test was used.

What should I do if I test positive for COVID-19?

When should I take a COVID-19 test?

CDC recommends that you get tested for COVID-19 if you:

CDC defines close contacts as individuals who have been within six feet of an active case of COVID-19 for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more within a 24-hour period.

CDC’s Coronavirus Self-Checker helps you check your symptoms online and, based on your answers, provides recommended actions and resources. 

COVID-19 self-reporting

All students, faculty and staff should self-report illness/exposure and isolation orders, as well COVID-19 positive test results regardless of testing location or if an at-home test was used. If you tested positive at Student Health, you will need to report these results to the university.

Students and employees should also submit proof of full COVID-19 vaccination, including proof of a booster or additional dose. These records will be critical in making decisions regarding isolation — learn more about Isolation and Exposure. The information you report will remain confidential.

Report all positive test results at the time the test results are received, regardless of testing location or if you use an at-home test.

Regardless of vaccination status, students and employees should self-report:

  • Regardless of testing location or if you used an at-home test, report your positive test results to the university. If you tested positive at Student Health, you will also need to report these results to the university.
  • If a healthcare provider tells you that you are presumed positive and/or if you have been instructed to isolate by public health.

If you have reported positive test results, the university’s COVID-19 response team will be in touch as soon as possible.

Submit a “Care and Concern” report if a student or employee reports a positive test result to you.

In addition, if you have a concern about a student, you can report that concern to the Dean of Students.
