Since I am unvaccinated and have symptoms of COVID-19, I need to:
- Isolate at home or in a designated room in Student Housing, beginning on the date that you tested positive, or you become symptomatic (whichever is first), for at least 10 days.
- Isolation is a public health term that means that people who have symptoms of COVID-19 and/or test positive for COVID-19 are separated from the general population until they are no longer infectious.
- Isolation is different from quarantine. Isolation is for when you KNOW you are infected. Quarantine is for when you MIGHT be infected but DON'T KNOW yet.
- Complete the COVID-19 Self-Reporting Form.
- Call your primary care physician or health care provider for guidance on appropriate action to take.
- Notify the Contact Tracing team and the instructors of any in-person classes you attended, of any University locations you have frequented for the period up to 2 days prior to becoming symptomatic.
- Get tested for COVID-19, if you haven’t already done so. Either your health care provider or the U Health COVID-19 hotline (801-587-0712) can refer you for testing.
- Once you have received the results of the diagnostic test, contact your instructors / supervisor and update the Self- Reporting Form.
- Regardless of the COVID-19 test results, you should not return to in-person classes until 10 days after your symptoms began, your symptoms have improved, and you are fever-free for at least 24 hours (without fever-reducing medications).
