COVID-19 Self-Reporting Guide

Reporting on COVID-19 symptoms, exposure and testing is essential to the health and safety of our community. The following guide can help you determine whether to self-report.

You must self-report your status if you fall into any of the following groups. Note that you must self-report your status, even after you've been vaccinated.

  • You are experiencing coronavirus symptoms.
  • You have had prolonged contact in close proximity of 6 feet or less with someone who has a confirmed case of COVID-19, whether wearing masks or not, for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period.
    • Healthcare providers who have had protected contact with COVID-19 patients while wearing respiratory PPE, such as N95 masks, do not need to self-report.
    • If you are fully vaccinated (2 doses of Moderna or Pfizer, or 1 dose of Johnson & Johnson/Janssen vaccine) AND 14 or more days have elapsed since your final dose, you may not need to quarantine after exposure to a known positive COVID-19 case. Self-report and the Contact Tracing team will follow up.
  • You are under quarantine by direction of a public health agency or medical provider.
    • Quarantine is a 14-day safety measure in place for individuals exposed to a COVID-19-confirmed person, in case symptoms develop during the incubation period of the virus.
  • You recently pursued testing for COVID-19 due to exposure or because you were experiencing COVID-like symptoms.
    • You must not be present on campus until your test results are received. You may work remotely if you are able, with supervisory approval, while awaiting your results.
  • You have tested positive or are presumptively positive for COVID-19, and/or are in isolation.
    • Isolation is a 10-day prevention measure to keep COVID-19-positive or presumptively positive individuals from spreading the virus to others.

Submit Your Self-Report



After submitting your self-report, let your supervisor/unit head know and stay home until contacted with further instructions. Follow the recommendations of the CU Anschutz Contact Tracing Team, public health agency and/or medical provider. Please do not return to on-campus activity until officially cleared to do so.
