Screen, Test & Protect


The health and well-being of students, faculty and staff, and those within our broader communities, remain our top priority.

Here are a few key things you should know if you test positive for COVID-19 or are identified as a contact of someone who has:

  1. You will be asked to self-isolate until cleared by the Florida Department of Health to return to campus. Details, including the number of days they will be asked to do so, depend on when your symptoms started and when your symptoms end.
  2. Asking those who are infected or suspected of having come in contact with an infected individual to self-isolate will allow us to further protect the most vulnerable in our communities.
  3. If you are an identified contact of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, you will be asked to self-quarantine until 14 days after your last date of exposure to the individual. During this time you will be monitored for symptoms and referred to testing and/or medical care as needed. You will not be allowed to return to campus until cleared from the Florida Department of Health.
  4. If you are a contact to a contact (twice removed from the case), you do not need to be quarantined and you can continue to work unless the person you were exposed to develops symptoms and tests positive for COVID-19. If this occurs, please begin self- quarantine and call the UF Health Screen, Test & Protect staff.

If you have additional questions, please contact your supervisor, or reach out to the UF Health Screen, Test & Protect call center at 352-273-9790.
