What to do if you test positive for COVID-19
Employees, if you test positive for COVID-19, please:
- Immediately notify the Office of Employee Services by sending an email to email@example.com OR calling (607) 436-2509.
- Notify your supervisor and discuss options for working remotely if you feel well enough to continue working and your work can be completed remotely.
- Follow the CDC guidelines for isolation and the university's reporting protocol; a member of the Employee Services team will review the requirements with you.
University Reporting Protocol & CDC Guidelines:
- Submit proof of testing positive by emailing or faxing:
- a copy of the positive COVID test, together with your university photo ID OR
- documentation from your physician confirming the positive test results
- Isolate for five days. The day you test positive is considered Day 0. Continue in isolation for Days 1 through 5.
- Return to work on Day 6 if:
- You have been fever-free for 24 hours (without taking fever reducing medication) AND
- Your symptoms are improving and you feel well enough to work.
- Wear a mask at all times on Days 6 through 10.
- Report your time in the Time and Attendance system as "mandatory quarantine" and complete an Affirmation of Isolation which will be provided to you by the Employee Services team. Generally, you will be allowed five (5) days of uncharged time for your absence due to COVID-19. A member of the Employee Services team will provide direction and more information if your situation does not qualify for the waiver of leave usage or if additional leave time is available.
Please reach out to the Employee Services team (firstname.lastname@example.org OR (607) 436-2509) if you have any questions. Remember if you are feeling unwell, contact your personal physician and follow their medical advice.
If you are exposed to someone who is COVID-19 positive, the CDC recommends that you wear a mask for 10 days after the exposure.
