I am an employee. What do I do if I have tested positive for COVID-19?

Faculty and staff who have symptoms of COVID-19 should stay home from work, contact their supervisor and their primary care provider and get tested for COVID-19.

If the test result is positive, the employee should continue to stay home from work and contact their supervisor regarding taking time off or working remotely.

Faculty and staff with a positive test result also should:

  • Complete the COVID-19 Positive Form online.
  • Upon completion of the COVID-19 Form, the employee and their supervisor will receive important information via email regarding their status.
  • The employee should utilize appropriate earned time off COV Reason Codes
