Non-USI employees working on campus test positive for COVID-19

July 22, 2020

Six non-USI employees working on campus have tested positive for COVID-19. All those workers left campus and are now isolated. USI contact tracing protocols were enacted and two USI employees were identified as having potential exposure. One COVID-19 test of a USI employee was returned this morning and is positive. That employee is isolated at home. The second USI employee is seeking to be tested today and is home self-quarantining.
USI employees and students are asked to self-monitor and check daily for symptoms of COVID-19. Anyone with symptoms of COVID-19, or who has been exposed to someone with COVID-19, should fill out the self-reporting form, remain off campus and contact their primary care physician for evaluation. Exposure and contact tracing plans have been developed and will be implemented when needed.
