I was exposed to someone with COVID-19.

Overview

REPORTING COVID-19 EXPOSURES 

Generally speaking, you need to have been in close contact* with someone who has COVID-19 to become infected. *Close contact is defined as being within 6 feet of someone with COVID-19 for 15 minutes or longer, even if masked, or if you’ve shared utensils or been coughed or sneezed on by a person who has been confirmed to have COVID-19. If you believe that you have been exposed (for instance, if the close contact reports a positive COVID-19 test or a presumptive positive diagnosis from a health care provider) follow these directions:

  1. Stay in place and do not go to school or work. Avoid public places for 14 days.
  2. Report your exposure to COVID-19 by clicking the COVID-19 Form button on the right.
  3. Be prepared to share a timeline of movements across campus for the previous 48 hours (collected within the AU Together app).
  4. Monitor your health for fever, cough and shortness of breath for 14 days after your last contact with the ill person.

QUARANTINE

Quarantine is used for anyone who has come into close contact* (being within 6 feet of someone with COVID-19 for 15 minutes or longer, even if masked) with an infected person. This individual is asked to quarantine (stay in place, restricting interactions) for 14 days from the time of exposure, while monitoring for symptoms. An apartment in Tara East will be used to facilitate quarantine for those students who cannot quarantine at home.

If an individual lives with a person who is COVID+, the individual should begin quarantine following the isolation period of the person who is COVID+.
