August 20, 2021 - Tritons report COVID-19 Diagnosis/Symptoms (Employees)

Faculty and staff are required to complete the Reporting COVID-19 Diagnosis/Symptoms Form if they are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or have an active, confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19, as well as if they have had close contact with someone with a confirmed case of COVID-19.

The submission of the form is received by the Campus Health Officer, who is responsible for tracking confirmed or suspected COVID-19 cases on campus. If an employee is instructed to remain off campus, the CHO will send a notification to the appropriate supervisor alerting them of the employee's restriction from coming to campus without revealing any personal medical information. This notification will include the department chair for faculty members. Supervisors and employees should work together to address any needs during the absence. Additionally, Human Resources will be responsible for ensuring that appropriate documentation is completed (e.g., FMLA, work from home arrangements, etc.).

When a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19 has been reported, the Campus Health Officer will:

  • Discuss symptoms or diagnosis with the employee, and may instruct them to self-isolate or quarantine and not return to campus until written approval is received by the Campus Health Officer.
  • Povide general notification of absence to appropriate supervisor if instructed to remain off campus.
  • Gather additional information in accordance with our limited campus contact tracing efforts.
  • Coordinate with Facilities to advise if a campus location requires cleaning.

Review the full policy for reporting confirmed or suspected cases. Let's all do our part to start safe and stay safe.
