Contact Tracing

Contact tracing is performed by the Virginia Department of Health (VDH). It is important that everyone in the UVA community engages with UVA and VDH teams during case investigation and contact tracing so that we can limit the spread of the virus. Students with concern for close contact exposure should review this PDF from Student Health and Wellness (SHW) for next steps. Faculty, staff, and UVA Health team members may contact Employee Health.

Isolation and Quarantine

Isolation is the separation from others of an individual who has a confirmed infection of COVID-19. Public health officials (CDC, VDH, university officials) define the parameters for isolation, which have evolved over time.  Please check the SHW Quarantine and Isolation webpage for up-to-date guidelines.
 

Quarantine is the separation from others of an individual who has been in close contact with someone with a positive diagnosis of COVID-19.

Students living off-Grounds will be expected to quarantine or isolate from ALL their housemate(s) at their off-Grounds housing. . The University will provide Isolation Housing only to students who are unable to isolate at their permanent home due to  extenuating circumstances (e.g. distance, high-risk family members, unsafe home environment.)

Employee Health will provide guidance about returning to work following isolation or quarantine to employees and their managers.
