Self Report Options:
COVID-19 Exposure, Symptoms or Tested Positive
USI employees, students and guests/visitors to campus are asked to self-monitor and check daily for symptoms of COVID-19. Anyone with symptoms of COVID-19, who has been exposed to someone with COVID-19 or has side effects 48 hours after a vaccination, should fill out the self-reporting form, remain off campus and contact their primary care physician for evaluation. Exposure and contact tracing plans have been developed and will be implemented when needed.
COVID-19 Vaccination Record
USI has launched a voluntary COVID-19 vaccination reporting mechanism for students, faculty and staff. Reporting your vaccine information helps the University better understand the level of vaccination rates in the USI community and better plan for the future during the ongoing pandemic. Self-reporting this information may also help to alleviate or reduce the need for quarantine in the event of an exposure. This information will help contact tracers to best guide you in necessary next steps.
If you are an employee, but take classes, please use the employee form.
Vaccination Information Usage and Storage
USI will use the SARS-CoV2 Vaccination Status information to assess the risk level of the campus community to COVID-19, assist in facilitating contact tracing protocols and make future decisions regarding the University’s response to COVID-19. This is an evolving situation and USI will follow the most up-to-date recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention with regard to risks and campus initiatives. The reported vaccination information will be stored in Banner under the immunization section and be available only to those with access to that information.
