Student Reporting a COVID-19 Case
Individuals who test positive for COVID-19 may provide this information voluntarily to the university. It is strongly encouraged that any individual who tests positive completes the online reporting form or provides consent to someone to report on their behalf. This information assists UNLV and the Southern Nevada Health District (SNHD) in notifying others to take necessary steps, including self-quarantine and seeking COVID-19 testing.
How to Report a Case of COVID-19
How the Online COVID-19 Reporting Form Info is Used
The information collected in UNLV’s online reporting form assists in fulfilling our obligations to notify the university community about confirmed cases of COVID-19 on our campuses.
- All submissions are reviewed by a team of experts on Clery Act notifications to ensure we are providing consistent, timely and aligned communications related to health and safety considerations.
- Cases are posted without any identifying information.
- UNLV sends an email and/or text notification of laboratory confirmed cases of COVID-19 only when it is deemed to have potentially exposed members of the campus community.
- An individual’s identity is NOT disclosed.
Individual health care providers are responsible for notifying the Southern Nevada Health District (SNHD) about all laboratory confirmed COVID-19 cases. SNHD coordinates contact tracing and provides guidance to close contacts – individuals who have been within six feet for 15 minutes or more – which may include their need to self-quarantine and get tested. The timing of the outreach may depend on the volume of caseloads public health officials are managing.
When an individual is confirmed to have COVID-19, the Southern Nevada Health District determines who they may have had close contact with and guidance is provided directly to those individuals. Please know that if there is a need for anyone to be quarantined or tested, they will be contacted by either the Southern Nevada Health District
and/or the UNLV Wellness Center
