UW reporting protocols if a student informs you they tested positive for COVID-19
If a student reports to you they have tested positive for COVID-19 or believes they may have been exposed to the virus, you should report this information to Dr. Bernard Anderson, Associate Vice Chancellor for Student Life, at firstname.lastname@example.org and encourage the student to reach out to Dr. Anderson as well.
If this happens in a class which is meeting in person and you have been in physical proximity with the student, you should also contact UW’s COVID-19 Response & Prevention Team at email@example.com or 206-616-3344.
In no circumstances should you share a student’s diagnosis or other private medical information with other students or colleagues.
Phase 2: Before you come to campus
Before coming to campus:
Staff and student employees should review UWHR's COVID-19 Employee Symptom Attestation
Academic personnel should review Academic HR’s Working On-Site COVID-19 Symptom Attestation: Policy for Academic Personnel
Complete a daily symptom attestation on Workday
You no longer need to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to let them know when and where you will be. However, do keep track of the days and times you visit.
Buildings will be accessible only during the hours of 8 a.m.- 4 p.m. Mon – Fri, and only with your Husky Card (Carlton Center exception)
