What should I do if a student in my class tests positive or reports symptoms?

You are not expected to take any action, other than to help public health officials contact trace others in your class if needed.

It is okay to share any reports of illness or symptoms with the CSU public health office, if you believe they may not be aware of the student’s situation. Do not fill out the COVID Reporter for the student. Otherwise, please protect their private medical information.

The student has been advised to contact instructors, if they are able. Students do not have to tell their instructors that they have or suspect they have COVID-19; they can share that they are out for general health reasons.

Student Case Management is alerted by CSU Public Health and provides support to these students.

Public health will notify an instructor only if there are concerns about contact tracing.
