We ask that anytime a student, staff member, or visitor to campus learns of their positive COVID-19 test result or needs to quarantine after close contact with COVID-19, they complete the self-reporting form for their campus. Form responses will be routed only to the relevant campus office. This form is open 24/7 so that we can be as efficient as possible with follow-up actions.
