Anyone with symptoms should be tested. In general, you do not need a test if you do not have COVID-19 symptoms. Use the CDC Self-Checker to guide you to make a decision and seek appropriate medical care.
The CDC recommends testing for anyone in close contact with someone who is infected. The incubation period (the time between being exposed and developing symptoms) is two to 14 days, with about 50% of people showing symptoms around day 5. For the most up-to-date information, visit the CDC’s website.
If you are experiencing any symptoms of illness:
- Stay home
- Complete the form
- Notify your supervisor
Supervisors are required to complete the form on behalf of their employee (faculty, TA, GPTI, RA, staff) in addition to the employee’s completion of the form and to follow campus guidelines for supervisor responsibilities.
As part of campus monitoring and contact tracing, employees will be able to be tested on campus if they are identified as having been potentially exposed.
If an employee is identified as having been potentially exposed on campus, that person will be informed of testing options as part of the campus contact tracing process.
