What should I do if I think I have been exposed to COVID-19 but have not heard from a contact tracer?

If you believe you have had close contact with someone with COVID-19—usually defined as being within 6 feet for 15 minutes or longer with someone infected with the virus—but have not yet heard from a contact tracer, you should plan to limit your interactions with other people. Log on to your MyUHS account and navigate to “Messages” to see if you have a secure message related to this contact. If you do not, contact University Health Services at 608-265-5600 for additional information and further instructions. If you receive an exposure notification through the Safer Badgers app, you will be provided with instructions for next steps.If you develop symptoms, please isolate yourself immediately and seek a COVID-19 test. You may get tested at an on-campus test site, or students can contact UHS and employees may seek testing through their health provider or testing in their community.
