FAQs

How does this work?

All positive COVID-19 tests are reported to their local health department per state law.  Through a partnership with the state and local health departments, the UA SAFER team has been trained and authorized to start the case investigations and contact tracing for faculty, staff and students associated with The University of Arizona.

What is asked on the form?

The form will ask you to recall names and contact information (cell phone and email) for any of your close contacts who may have been exposed.  They will then be notified that they have been exposed to a confirmed case of COVID-19 – however, your name will not be shared in the process.  This rapid notification allows people to take public health action soon which can help reduce community transmission.

Will I be contacted?

Yes, a SAFER team member will call you in 24-48 hours to ask more specific questions about your illness and make sure your data is recorded it the state’s public health system. During that time, you will also have the opportunity to add other contacts you may have recalled and they will be notified as well.  Additionally, you may also be contacted by the local health department.

What if I choose not to participate?

Completing the form is voluntary.  We still encourage you to let your close contacts (within 6ft for 15 minutes or more) know that you received a positive COVID-19 test result.  They can, in turn, monitor their health, watch for symptoms, and take extra precautions for the 14 day period since the exposure occurred. 

What should I do if I tested positive for COVID-19?

If you have received a positive COVID-19 test result, follow the advice of your health care provider and review these recommendations:
