Support for Vanderbilt Community Members in Isolation

Posted by on Wednesday, March 11, 2020 in .

Students who test positive for COVID-19 must isolate as directed until they have been deemed to have recovered. To determine the risk of potential exposure for others on campus, the Vanderbilt Public Health Central Command Center will conduct contact tracing with any student who has tested positive. Please visit the Contact Tracing page for more information on contact tracing.

The Office of the Provost is working with students to minimize disruptions to their academic progress during the isolation period.

Staff should contact their HR consultant to discuss how to find the appropriate solution so that they can isolate. Staff can find their HR consultant here:

Faculty should contact their dean to seek assistance while they must remain away from work.

Postdocs should be in touch with their faculty advisor for assistance.
