Isolation Guidance for Those Who Test Positive

Updated January 6, 2023

An important strategy for reducing transmission of COVID-19 is to identify those with infections and instruct them to isolate while they are infectious. It is also important to identify close contacts of infected individuals and provide guidance on how to take care of themselves and prevent transmission to others.


Faculty, Staff, and Trainees

  • Faculty, staff, and post-doctoral trainees who test positive through the university testing program will receive guidance regarding close contacts and will be asked to isolate at home for 7 days, regardless of vaccination status, and until a health care provider informs them it is safe to return to campus.
  • Those who test positive outside of the university testing program should self-report in order to receive the same guidance and care.
