No. Follow-up testing is a tool to monitor COVID-19 spread within the community. Those tested in the follow-up testing can continue coming to campus without their test result.
No. Faculty and staff who want to get tested in-between the regular testing schedule should contact their healthcare provider. Students who feel they should be tested outside of the monthly schedule should contact Campus Health to discuss their options. DO NOT go to the testing center if you have COVID-19 symptoms.
If you test positive for COVID-19, Campus Health will help you determine whether to isolate/quarantine at home. You should contact Campus Health or your personal healthcare provider for further guidance. Tulane Contact Tracers will also contact you to determine any close contacts that may need to be notified and determine what areas on campus may need to be disinfected. You should notify your professor that you will be out due to health reasons, but you do not need to disclose why. Tulane Contact Tracers will not disclose the name of any person with COVID-19 to the contacts that are notified through the tracing program.

Faculty and staff who are sick should call their healthcare provider. Students who have campus health access and are sick should contact Campus Health. Students who did not pay to have campus health access should contact their healthcare provider.
If a student receives a COVID-19 positive test outside of the Tulane screening program you should complete the Illness Reporting Form (https://cm.maxient.com/reportingform.php?TulaneUniv&layout_id=17).
Faculty and staff should complete the Illness Reporting Form so that contact tracing can be implemented and the workspace can be cleaned. If you are an employee, you should also let your supervisor know that you are sick (you do not need to disclose the nature of that illness).
Tulane Contact Tracers will discuss with you the isolation protocol and discern who you have been in “close contact” with during the last several days. Contact Tracers contact identified close contacts and tell them they were exposed to a known covid+ case and facilitate that person going into quarantine for 14 days. A close contact is someone you were closer than 6 feet for more than 15 minutes. The name of the covid+ individual is not shared.
No. Contact Tracers only reach out to the contacts of someone who is COVID-19+.
The Living Well Clinic offers COVID-19 testing. Faculty and Staff can choose where to go for testing.
Tulane’s daily symptom questionnaire is required for all employees and students who will be physically on-campus. For the safety of our community, everyone is expected to self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms by completing a brief daily COVID-19 symptom questionnaire prior to coming to campus for class or work or participating in a Tulane sponsored event off campus.
Students and employees who are not on campus consistently but make occasional visits on-site, must complete the questionnaire for each instance that they come to campus. Employees working remotely and students learning remotely do not need to complete the questionnaire.
