If you have tested positive for COVID-19 or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, it's important to do your part to help your friends, family and community safe.

Contact tracing is one part of CMU's plan to keep everyone safe and slow the spread of COVID-19. CMU's contact tracing team is being led by our faculty experts with support of key staff.

CMU Contact Tracers

When will I hear from a contact tracer?

If you have been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19, a CMU contact tracer will call you to inform you that you may have been exposed to COVID-19. Any information you share with them is confidential. This means that personal information will be kept private.

If you have tested positive for COVID-19 or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, it's important to do your part to help keep the Mavily, your friends, family and community safe. Contact tracing is one part of keeping everyone safe and slowing the spread of COVID-19.

Here's what you can expect following a test.

What do I do when I've been notified that I was in close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19?

Step 1

Stay at Home / Self-Quarantine

You should stay at home and self-quarantine for 14 days, starting from the last day you were possibly exposed to COVID-19. Self-quarantine means staying home, monitoring your health, and maintaining social distancing (at least 6 feet) from others at all times. 

  1. Need support?

    The CMU contact tracer can provide information about COVID-19 testing in your area. If you need support or assistance with self-quarantine, your CMU contact tracer or Student Services may be able to provide assistance. 

Step 2

Take Your Temperature Twice Daily

You should take your temperature twice a day, watch for fever and other symptoms of COVID-19, and enter your symptoms into the Scout App. 

  1. If you become ill...

    If you become ill during the 14 days of self-quarantine, you should visit the Student Wellness Center to receive medical care for your symptoms and/or seek emergency medical care if your symptoms become severe. Emergency warning signs include trouble breathing, persistent pain or pressure in the chest, confusion, inability to wake or stay awake, or bluish lips or face.
