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

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.

Prevention

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.

Face Coverings in Indoor Public Spaces on UNLV Campuses Are Required Regardless of Vaccine Status

Effective Friday, July 30, 2021, students, employees, and members of the public, regardless of vaccine status, are required to wear a face covering while inside any building or structure on any UNLV campus or property. Face coverings must cover both the mouth and nose.

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

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, 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 short-termaccommodations@unlv.edu 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).
  • If students indicate that they belong to a group that is at higher risk of severe illness, and cannot be part of in-person activities required for their degree programs, and the course instructor is unable to provide on online or remote alternative, then the chair or director of the academic unit is expected to allow students to substitute the course(s) with a suitable web-based/remote course(s), or to waive the requirement(s).
  • 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 $59,017 per violation. Any resulting fines will be paid by the faculty member’s department.
