Case Reporting Protocol
Throughout AUC’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the University has remained focused on the health and safety of our faculty, students and staff.
Classroom Contact Tracking System (Student Case)
1- A positive case is identified. This can happen in two ways. The first way is through the self-check system when someone reports symptoms or being in contact with another positive case. The clinic calls them to follow up. The second way is when the individual calls or presents to the clinic directly. Both ways will result in the case being classified as either positive or highly probable in the event there is no confirmation yet.
2- The student is given a medical excuse and asked to isolate until they (he/she) test negative.
3- The relevant faculty members in all of the student’s classes are notified that that student has an excused absence. (notification is sent from DoS)
4- If the infected (positive) student came to class after the suspected infection date or before reporting to the clinic, the relevant individuals who have been in contact are informed that they have been in contact with someone who tested positive and are asked to isolate until they test negative four days after isolation (or after the last contact date) four days after the last contact is more accurate than after isolation.
It is important to highlight that the first step rests on the clinic being informed of a positive case or a suspected positive case. Once the clinic is informed of a positive case, the email notifications for medical excuses and testing are triggered on the same day.
