On-Campus Health Requirements

Notify UNLV of COVID-19 Cases

Individuals who have been on a UNLV campus and test positive for COVID-19 should complete the voluntary online reporting form. This information assists UNLV and the Southern Nevada Health District in notifying others of the need to self-quarantine and to seek testing. Your identity and private information is protected and cases are posted without identifying information.


Training is required for all UNLV employees and recommended for all students and visitors. Training sessions for employees are available through WebCampus and student training is available at the Coronavirus Students Page.

The health and wellbeing of the university community remain UNLV’s most important considerations as we work to fulfill our educational mission. To mitigate health risks and the spread of COVID-19, all students, faculty, instructors, staff, and visitors must adhere to the following regarding social distancing, face coverings, and illness.


All UNLV campuses have adopted the following Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines for students, instructors, employees, and visitors.

Wash Your Hands

Frequently wash hands with soap and water for a minimum of 20 seconds. Use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol in absence of soap and water. Do not touch your face.

Wear Face Coverings

Governor Steve Sisolak mandated all Nevadans and visitors wear a mask or face covering in all public spaces, including outside. Social distancing is not a substitute for face coverings. UNLV requires all students, faculty, staff, and visitors to its campuses to wear face coverings when in public spaces. Learn more about face coverings, including those that are prohibited.

Wear a cloth face covering when in public to protect other people in case you are infected with COVID-19.

Practice Social Distancing

Maintain six feet (about 2 arms’ lengths) between yourself and others. Wearing a cloth face covering is NOT a substitute for social distancing. Adhere to current public health requirements that limit the size of group gatherings. Avoid crowded spaces.

Tobacco Use Prohibited

UNLV's COVID-19 Health and Safety Policy prohibits the on-campus use of  tobacco (including smoking, vaping, and chewing tobacco) to maintain compliance with the mandate to wear a mask of face covering.

Self-Monitor Daily for COVID-19 Symptoms

  • Before coming to campus, employees must take their temperature and self-screen through the CDC Self-Checker or the RebelSAFE Mobile App COVID-19 Assessment Tool. Instructions to download the RebelSAFE App are online.
  • 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, inform your supervisor that you may need to work remotely or record COVID-19-related administrative leave, and refer to the CDC guidance regarding what to do if someone in your house is sick.
