Positive tests, close exposure

If you test positive or if you’ve been in close contact with someone who tested positive, follow the CDC’s guidelines on isolation and quarantine.

Positive case notifications

As the COVID pandemic has shifted, the Iowa Department of Health and Human Services guidance has transitioned to reduced case investigation and contact tracing. Accordingly, Iowa State is no longer providing case investigation or contact tracing for the campus community. If you test positive or need to quarantine according to CDC guidance, it’s your responsibility to contact your instructor or supervisor and make arrangements for class or work. Faculty will not be notified of students in their class who test positive.

  • Faculty members or supervisors made aware of a positive case in their classroom or work area should not share this information with others. This parallels how we handle other medical information about an employee or student and protects the privacy of the individual. Furthermore, faculty and supervisors may not have all of the details to make accurate notifications.
