Implementation of New COVID-19 Tracking Forms

Dear UHD Faculty & Staff,

COVID-19 is expected to impact our community for months to come. Although the pandemic remains a fluid situation, UHD’s commitment to the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff remains as strong as ever. To safeguard our university community, UHD Emergency Management is implementing two new forms to track confirmed COVID-19 cases and possible COVID-19 exposures within the UHD community.

The UHD Community can access these documents located in the Forms Section of UHD’s COVID-19 website.

Faculty, staff and students who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 must report the diagnosis to the university. Additionally, faculty, staff and students who believe that they have been exposed to an individual with a confirmed case of COVID-19 must also report that information to the university.

Once a form is completed, health officials will be notified, the information will be routed to the appropriate UHD personnel and the process of contact tracing will be initiated. Individuals who may have been exposed will be notified directly.

Those members of the UHD Community who are diagnosed or exposed to confirmed COVID-19 cases must adhere to the following University protocols:

Personal, Domestic and International Travel

  • Adhere to UHD’s expanded travel policy restricting all university-sponsored domestic and international travel through at least July 31, 2020.
  • If you have traveled internationally since February 1, 2020 (to include cruises), then report international travel on this Travel Form.
  • Self-monitor for symptoms and quarantine for 14 days.
  • Upon completion of quarantine, submit a Request to Return to Campus Form.

Students

We know you may have questions when deciding which forms to fill out. In navigating this process, UHD Emergency Management has provided a link to a Flow Chart and Frequently Asked Questions.

Please keep your community and public health responsibility in mind. Actions everyone can take to mitigate the spread of infection include everyday preventive measures, such as social distancing, proper hand washing, wearing face coverings, and staying home when sick.

We are a campus community that is adapting to different learning and working configurations in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Throughout these challenges, we shall remain a caring and compassionate community of resilient Gators.
