Procedures for Positive Cases

Early detection of illness can prevent the spread of COVID-19 within the UNE community. All community members are expected to monitor their health daily. It is important that students and employees inform the University when they are symptomatic or receive a positive test result so that the appropriate steps can be taken.   

  • When the University learns of a positive test, either through our own testing or testing conducted by an outside provider, we will conduct contact tracing to determine who may have been exposed.  
  • Students who experience symptoms or who are in contact with a COVID-19 positive individual must contact the Student Health Center.  
  • Students who seek care at a facility off campus must also notify the Student Health Center.  
  • Students awaiting test results and/or who have a positive COVID-19 test who can safely return home and do not have high-risk individuals in their household should do so.  
  • For students who must remain on campus, the first floor of East Hall on the Biddeford Campus has been designated as the quarantine space for residential students. 
  • Employees who have a positive COVID-19 test or who are waiting for testing results are expected to remain at home until cleared by a health professional and Human Resources to return to on-campus work. 
  • In accordance with federal laws, UNE will not share any information that could identify specific individuals. We ask all members of our community to respect the privacy of those affected by COVID-19.
