Tested Positive For COVID-19?

If you tested positive for the COVID-19 virus, you're now a part of a historic pandemic. Here's what you should do next.

Take a deep breath and follow these steps:

1. If you received a positive COVID-19 test result from testing outside of the University, you must self-report to Campus Health by calling (520) 621-9202 as soon as possible.

2. If you have the Covid Watch Arizona App, enter your code:

  • If you got tested at North Rec, McKale, the Student Union, or a remote on-campus location, you can find this code by logging into the test results portal.
  • If you got tested at Campus Health, your provider can give you a code.
  • If you got tested outside the University, please contact Campus Health at (520) 621-9202 and have a copy of your lab results available to upload.

3. It's time to self-isolate.

Isolate for 10 days from the start of your symptoms OR the date you tested positive, whichever came first. You should be fever-free for at least 24 hours before leaving isolation.

Self-isolation is critical to prevent the spread of the virus to others.

Re-Testing: Students will not need to be retested at the end of their isolation and cannot test out of isolation before the recommended 10 day isolation period.  

Returning To Work: If you need documentation to return to work, call Campus Health at (520) 621-9202.


As a student living on-campus, Housing & Residential Life will be in contact with you to discuss your isolation plans (to go home locally, stay elsewhere, or move to an on-campus isolation dorm).


Housing & Residential Life will coordinate transportation to the dorm.  Plan to stay in the isolation dorm for 10 days (reference the advice from your healthcare provider for discontinuing isolation). 

Discontinuing Isolation: Once your isolation period is over, you must be cleared by a Campus Health provider before returning to your dorm. You can contact your provider via email/secure messaging through PatientLink or call (520) 621-9202 to speak with a provider.
