Information for Faculty & Staff


Employees experiencing symptoms consistent with COVID-19 should stay at home and get tested immediately by taking an antigen test or contacting your primary care physician. You can also find PCR testing facilities in your area by visiting state and local health department websites. If symptomatic, all employees - including faculty, staff and student workers - must complete the Daily Check health assessment and notify your immediate supervisor if you are ill and need time away from work.

COVID-19 Etiquette for Faculty and Staff

If you are ill:

  • Do not attend class, work or other social gatherings.
  • If you have symptoms suggestive of COVID-19, seek and perform an antigen test.
  • If you are feeling particularly ill, contact your primary care provider.

If you test positive:

  • Report your antigen result through the Daily Check, which helps track the prevalence on campus and enables employees to receive appropriate workplace guidance.
  • Tell colleagues and other close contacts that you have COVID-19. This will allow others to take proactive steps to monitor their health.
  • Isolate at home and follow TCHD current isolation guidelines.
