When can I return to on-site work after a positive test?

Most people will need to isolate for 10 days, though some will need to isolate longer. Unless you have received different instructions from a medical provider or public health official, you can return to work once you meet the following conditions:

  • It’s been at least 10 days since your positive test; and
  • you’ve been free of fever for 24 hours without taking fever-reducing medication; and
  • your other symptoms are improving

Your Badger Badge will remain red/building access denied for 10 days of isolation and will turn green/building access granted on day 11. You will be excused from campus testing and your badge will remain green for 90 days from the date of the positive test.

Please continue to follow the instructions provided to you by your health provider. You may also find more information in your MyUHS account.

See the University Health Services website for more information about quarantine and isolation.
