Students, Faculty and Staff with a Positive Test Result

Students who test off campus and receive a positive result should immediately report those results to Health Services. Employees are required to fill out this self-report form if you test positive or if you are required to quarantine due to suspected or known exposure to COVID-19.


  • Bradley Health Services will initiate contact tracing for positive student cases. It’s essential you let Health Services know if you test positive at an off-campus testing facility.  
    • Just as Bradley does for any illness, Student Support Services will include ill students in a list of those who won't attend class in-person. However, students should feel free to let their instructors know directly if they'd like. Faculty must keep students' COVID-19 status confidential. 
  • Students who test positive for COVID-19 are encouraged to return to their permanent residence for isolation. If that's not possible, they may be asked to relocate to the school's COVID isolation location.


  • If employees test positive through the campus surveillance testing, they will be referred to their local city/county health department to initiate community contact tracing. However, they should still report their positive status by using this self-report form. Supervisors should inform HR immediately if an employee reports a positive test or quarantine due to close contact.
  • Bradley Health Services will contact employees to discuss their situation and provide instruction about returning to work/campus. Following this guidance, employees must inform their supervisor how long they are expected to be absent from work.
  • Employees should not return to work or visit campus until cleared to do so by Bradley Health Services. Stay home to self-isolate and follow the CDC-recommended steps for care.


  • If you’re employed by or volunteer at an outside company or organization, or if you’re enrolled in a clinical, internship or other experiential learning opportunity with an outside company or organization, you’re responsible for contacting them regarding a positive test.
