Effective February 2, 2022, the College will implement an automated process to report COVID-19 positive cases and COVID-19 exposures, which will supplement and streamline the outreach efforts of the College’s contact tracers.
Students or employees who test positive for COVID-19 or who are identified as a close contact (defined below) of someone who tested positive for COVID-19 must complete the COVID-19 Reporting Form.
A close contact is defined as someone who was within 6 feet of an infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period starting from 2 days before illness onset (or, for asymptomatic patients, 2 days prior to test specimen collection) until the time the patient is isolated. As per the local health department, the correct and consistent use of a proper face covering indoors may mean that a person is not considered a close contact to a case (Sources: CDC & Northwest Bergen Regional Health Commission).
Upon completion of the COVID-19 Reporting Form, you will receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org with further instructions. In addition, a member from Health Services (for students) or Human Resources (for employees) will contact you to review and clarify, as needed, the information you reported.
As a reminder, you should not report to campus (residential students should stay in their room) if you have tested positive, have symptoms consistent with COVID-19, or have had an exposure.
