If you respond yes to one or more of the screening questions or exhibit other symptoms noted by the CDC, inform your supervisor that you need to work remotely or record COVID-19-related administrative leave.
If you test positive for COVID-19 or are exposed to someone who has tested positive, you must follow CDC guidelines regarding isolation or quarantine.
If someone in your household has COVID-19 symptoms, speak with your supervisor and refer to the CDC guidance regarding what to do if someone in your house is sick. Employees will be required to use sick time to care for their household members.
What to Do When You are Sick
If you are sick with COVID-19 or think you may have COVID-19, stay home and follow advice from your health care provider and the CDC's guidelines.
Notify your supervisor, department chair or dean.
Complete the online reporting form. This supports the university’s effort to notify individuals of necessary quarantine and stop the spread of COVID-19 on our campuses. It also helps to deploy support and resources to the individual from the Student Health Center, the FAST Center, Human Resources and the provost’s office. Provide as much detail as possible when you hear from contact tracers to assist them in notifying others who may be sick.
Student requests for short-term arrangements will be generated from the self-reporting form. Instructors will receive a letter from firstname.lastname@example.org if a student has reported a need for academic accommodations resulting from illness. Instructors must make a good-faith effort, in collaboration with the student, to make temporary adjustments for the student to complete coursework. Students who require longer term accommodations (beyond two weeks) will be referred to the Disability Resource Center (DRC).
Do not send COVID-19 notices to your class or coworkers without first contacting Clery Compliance Coordinator Ashleigh Angell, or 702-895-3833. Communicating information about COVID-19 cases may share protected personal information and violate the federal Clery Act, resulting in fines up to $62,689 per violation. Any resulting fines will be paid by the faculty member’s department.
