If someone on campus has possible COVID-19 symptoms

What to do if someone on campus shows symptoms that could be COVID-19

If you know someone with symptoms that could be COVID-19, politely and respectfully inquire if the person is feeling okay. They may have been diagnosed with a non-infectious illness or had lots of other people asking about their symptoms, which can be frustrating.

Remind them that if anyone has COVID-19 like symptoms they should not attend campus. For the safety of all students and staff, and consistent with the University’s COVIDSafe Plan, they should go home and arrange to be tested for COVID-19 or contact their GP and/or seek medical advice.

They should stay off campus until they are symptom-free, even if they receive a negative COVID-19 test result, unless they receive a non-infectious medical diagnosis.

Remind them of the special COVID-19 benefits for staff and support available for students.
