Revised COVID Protocol
February 11, 2022

  1. Submit a self-report form if:
    1. You test positive or have symptoms.
    2. You have been in close contact* with someone who has COVID.
      * less than 6 feet away from an infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period
  1. When you self-report, you will receive an email message, which will include:
    1. The specific projected date of your return to campus, based on CDC guidelines. 
    2. A statement that you can return to campus on that projected date of return as long as you do not have a fever and your symptoms are improving.
    3. A recommendation to get tested (home test or PCR test), but no test documentation will be required. At-home test kits are free and available at three campus locations:
      1. Health Educator, Elma Kendrick (Main Building, A01);
      2. Main Building Information Desk; and
      3. Human Resources Administrative Assistant Kristina Bowden’s desk located on Gee 2nd floor in the corridor outside Yonnie Butler’s office (214).
  1. On your projected date of return, if you do not have a fever and your symptoms are resolving:
    1. Student: take a copy of the email message from the Health Educator containing the return date to each class as documentation to show your instructor.
    2. Employee: show your supervisor a copy of the email message from HR showing date of return to campus.
  2. Upon return to campus, wear a mask while indoors.


  • If you develop symptoms, isolate and get tested.
  • Do not return to campus if you continue to have a fever and your symptoms are not resolving, regardless of your projected date to return.
