Don’t Forget to Self-Report Positive COVID-19 Cases
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – As many begin to focus more on COVID-19 vaccination efforts, testing and reporting positive results remain a critical part of the university’s ability to monitor, evaluate and respond to the coronavirus situation on campus.
SELF-REPORT IF YOUR TESTING WAS DONE OFF-CAMPUS
If you were tested off campus and receive a positive result, it is extremely important that you self-report your positive test result as soon as possible.
Please use the university’s COVID-19 Self-Reporting Form to submit your positive case result. A link to the form is also highlighted at the top of the university’s COVID-19 information page.
The U of A Emergency Management division tracks positive cases on campus and ensures all positive case reports are provided to the appropriate personnel on and off-campus.
DON’T SELF-REPORT IF YOU WERE TESTED ON-CAMPUS
If you are tested at Pat Walker Health Center, or through other university-affiliated testing conducted on campus, and receive a positive result, your result will be reported to appropriate personnel on your behalf. So, no need to self-report.
