Self Reporting

Please remember

Students, if you test positive for COVID-19 or are having symptoms that may be related to COVID-19, you are required to  contact UC’s COVID Response Team immediately. The expectation is that you will use the UC COVID Check app or use the web-based toolfor self reporting if you have symptoms. The App and web-based tool provide a simple way to conduct self reporting and self assessment and report any symptoms. 

 Employees who have tested positive for COVID-19 or are not feeling well with COVID-related symptoms should report any expected absence from work to their supervisor, are strongly encouraged to immediately contact their health care provider and the COVID Response Team via the App or web-based tool

All information gathered through the university’s reporting process will be stored in a secure database and used in accordance with FERPA and UC’s Privacy Statement. The reporting requirement will allow University Health Services/the COVID Response Team to provide education, guidance and care monitoring; and to make decisions regarding campus safety and mitigation measures.

More about reporting

The App and the web-based tool asks about the following:  

  • COVID-19 diagnosis, a positive test result for COVID-19 or testing due to symptoms suggestive of the infection.
  • Close contact with an individual confirmed to have COVID-19 by laboratory testing or with a presumptive diagnosis of COVID-19, meaning not tested but diagnosed by a physician as likely to have the infection.
  • Anyone having symptoms consistent with COVID-19, including flu-like symptoms with chills, muscle aches, diarrhea, cough, shortness of breath or fever. In addition, the sudden loss of the sense of smell or taste can be an early sign of COVID-19 and should be immediately reported.
