Cumberland University Health Services administers COVID-19 tests for symptomatic students, faculty and staff as needed. An appointment can be made by contacting health services at email@example.com.
The University does not accept at home COVID-19 tests. An acceptable test must be able to provide the name and date of birth of the patient being tested on the results.
Although it is not recommended that asymptomatic individuals get tested, the health services office will work with any individual to find a testing facility that wishes to receive a COVID-19 test. If you are tested for COVID-19 for any reason, you should quarantine until you receive your test results. All results should be submitted to health services (firstname.lastname@example.org
If you test positive for COVID-19:
No matter your vaccination status, if you test positive for COVID-19 you should quarantine for a minimum of 10 days from the date of your COVID-19 test.
- If you have not already, contact health services at email@example.com immediately
- If you know the source of the infection, health services will work to contact trace and notify any individuals who may be at risk due to exposure
- You must be fever free and have improved or no symptoms after the 10th day to be released from quarantine and resume normal activities
If you test negative for COVID-19:
No matter your vaccination status, if you test negative for COVID-19 you are immediately able to resume normal activities. If you begin experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or are exposed to an individual that has tested positive for the virus, you should continue to follow designated guidelines in accordance with your vaccine status.
If you have been exposed to a COVID-19 positive individual, are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or have tested positive for COVID-19, you may be required to quarantine for a minimum of 10 days from the date of exposure or the testing date.
If you are fully vaccinated you will not need to quarantine unless you are experiencing symptoms of the virus, have tested positive for COVID-19 or cannot remove yourself from the exposure (i.e. household exposure).
If you are not fully vaccinated, you will need to quarantine for a minimum of 10 days if you are exposed to a COVID-19 positive individual, are experiencing symptoms or have tested positive for COVID-19.
Where do I quarantine?
With a full return to campus, Cumberland will no longer provide quarantine space on campus. Because all indoor spaces, including residence halls, will be restored to full or near full capacity, no on-campus rooms will be available for students who need to quarantine due to COVID-19 exposure or infection.
Students living on or off campus will need to plan for off-campus quarantine space as needed.
If you are faculty/staff, you will quarantine at your residence, or another off-campus option.
