If You Feel Ill

Here is what to do if you are experiencing any symptoms that may be consistent with COVID-19. Be aware that symptoms of COVID-19 may be mild and that people with mild infection are still able to spread the virus to others.

1. report positive test

If you receive a positive test, you are required to report this to our COVID-19 Response Team by emailing tracer@hartford.edu or compoleting Health Screening in the LiveSafe app.

Not sure when to test? Here are the most common symptoms of COVID-19:

  • Fever (100.4° or higher) or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea
2. AWAIT A CALL FROM OUR COVID-19 Response Team
  • A member of the COVID-19 Response Team will call you to discuss your symptoms and provide you with your official dates for isolation. The University will follow current CDC guidance.
  • The length of isolation will be five days from symptom onset or from the date of your positive test if no symptoms are present.  
  • A negative test is NOT required to return to campus. However, you will be required to wear a mask for an additional five days when in the presence of others. This five days is in addition to the isolation period.
3. Identify and Reach out to your Close Contacts

You should plan to notify your close contacts, both in and outside the University, of your positive test. Formal contact tracing and notification of close contacts will no longer take place via the COVID Response Team. We ask that you notify your close contacts so that they can take appropriate action.
