Someone I’ve been in close contact with just told me they tested positive, but a contact tracer hasn’t contacted me yet. What should I do?

If you are a close contact on campus, you may hear from a University Health Services contact tracer via secure message on your MyUHS app or through the MyUHS web portal.

If you haven’t heard from a contact tracer but someone tells you they tested positive and you believe you meet the definition of a close contact, you should:

  • Wear a mask any time you’re around other people for 10 days starting with your last contact (the day of your most recent close contact is day 0), regardless of your vaccination status;
  • Get tested 5 days after your last contact if possible (unless you tested positive in the last 90 days), or sooner if you develop symptoms;
