Based on policy received from CUNY, the following procedures should be followed for reporting actual or potential COVID cases on campus:
- If you are feeling any symptoms of COVID, you should notify your supervisor immediately and not report to work. Please note that the CUNY policy is for you to take sick leave if you cannot come to work because of illness.
- You should obtain a rapid PCR test to confirm if you have COVID. You can locate a rapid COVID test site around the city that is by appointment and returns PCR test results in a few hours. The link is here: https://www1.nyc.gov/site/doh/covid/covid-19-rapid-testing.page
- It is important that we move as quickly as possible during the early stages so that notification to those who have been exposed can go out and we can start the testing process within 3 to 5 days after exposure.
- You should send your COVID test results to Human Resources and to our COVID Liaison, Richard Belgrave ( firstname.lastname@example.org ).
- If your test is positive, Human Resources will reach out to you so they can provide further guidance and start gathering information on who may have been exposed.
- If you have been notified that you have been exposed and are vaccinated, you should schedule a rapid PCR test and remain home until your results are received.
- If you receive a negative test, you should send the results to Human Resources and report back to work.
- If you receive a positive test, you should send the results to Human Resources and wait for further guidance from them.
- If you have been notified that you have been exposed and are not vaccinated, you will be asked to quarantine for 10 days and provide a negative PCR test before coming back to campus.
