With most universities returning to full operating capacity this fall, students have a lot of questions about the continuation of COVID-19 policies from last year.
One of the most common questions we get from DC-area students is, “What happens if I get COVID while on campus? Do I have to report it to someone?”
The answer is almost certainly yes. While different universities may have different policies about testing and self-reporting, almost every university is strictly keeping track of all COVID cases on their campus.
So if you test positive for COVID-19, you’ll need to report it to your school, and then isolate until you get better.
At DC Student Defense, we make it our job to help you understand all of your school’s conduct policies. Read on for more information about self-reporting a positive COVID test on a DC college campus.
