If you are sick with any symptoms, even mild ones, you must stay at home and self-isolate. According to the Utah Department of Health, anyone experiencing one of six symptoms should seek testing: fever, cough, shortness of breath, muscle aches and pains, decreased sense of smell, or a sore throat.
Complete the COVID-19 Questionnaire
Fill out the COVID-19 Questionnaire if you are ill and are getting tested, waiting on test results, received a positive COVID-19 test result, have had close contact with an individual who has a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19, or if you have been asked to quarantine or isolate.
When students fill out the questionnaire, the COVID CARE Team will reach out about services and accommodations. If you need to update the CARE Team about additional needs, please update your COVID-19 questionnaire.
