Certain communicable diseases and other conditions of public health importance are reportable. That means that by law, any physician or laboratory that diagnoses someone with a communicable disease has to report it to the health department. We seek to identify and appropriately isolate and quarantine cases and contacts from all possible sources. These include the Florida Department of Health, which shares data for reportable infectious diseases through a system called MERLIN. The positive results obtained as part of the return-to-campus initiative and those obtained at the Student Health Care Center are other measures of the prevalence of COVID-19 on campus.


Employee, student and patient confidentiality laws prohibit us from disclosing the identities of individuals. It’s important to note that any individual who has tested positive will be isolated, and anyone believed to be at risk of exposure will be contacted and asked to self-quarantine. In cases where an employee fails to disclose to the university that they tested positive, the university may have no way of knowing and communicating that information. Therefore, this information includes only positive cases the university has been made aware of.
