How to Report a Positive COVID-19 Test 

  • On-Campus Testing: If you were tested on-campus you do not need to self-report as your case information has already been provided directly to Emergency Management by the university. 
  • Off-Campus Testing: If you were tested off-campus, have received a positive test for COVID-19 and have been on campus any time this semester, you must self-report your case to U of A Emergency Management using this online self-reporting form
