COVID-19 Personnel Self-Reporting Process

Employees should follow this process if they are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.

  1. If you are feeling sick before the start of your work day, inform your supervisor immediately and stay home until cleared by a COVID-19 Reporting Team member.

  2. Complete a COVID-19 online reporting form to notify the COVID-19 Reporting Team of your absence so they can conduct a contact tracing interview.

What happens after a COVID-19 Reporting Form is filed?

  1. A COVID-19 Reporting Team Member will:

    • Contact you within one business day for more information and to follow-up on symptoms.

    • Request information to help the Team identify any potential exposures for contact tracing purposes.

    • Notify authorized officials that you will not be allowed on campus until cleared by a COVID-19 Reporting Team member.

    • Determine a date in which you may be allowed to return to campus.

    • Call you the day of your tentative return date or the first business day after to conduct a follow-up evaluation. If cleared, you may be allowed to return the next day.

    • Email your supervisor to notify them of your anticipated return date.
