Reporting & Quarantine

Updated Oct. 31, 2023

Do not come to campus if you are ill, regardless of the reason. If you are symptomatic and test negative for COVID-19, do not return to campus until your symptoms have resolved.


COVID-19 Reporting Form

All NUNM students, faculty and staff members who are symptomatic, have COVID symptoms or have tested positive for COVID-19 should complete this form to help keep track of and respond to on campus. The form will require you to log in with your NUNM email account. Upon reporting, students will be contacted by the Dean of Students, and employees will be contacted by the Vice President of Human Resources.

The form will require you to log in with your NUNM email account. 

Isolation Guidelines


Healthcare Workers

Applies to all NUNM clinical employees and students, and non-clinical employees and students working or learning in a clinical setting.

  • Exposed: Regardless of vaccination status, it is recommended that all individuals with COVID-19 exposures are tested immediately (but not earlier than 24 hours after the exposure) and, if negative, again 48 hours after the first negative test and, if negative, again 48 hours after the second negative test. This will typically be at Day 1 (where day of exposure is Day 0), Day 3 and Day 5.  A high-quality mask should be worn on campus through day 10. 
  • Positive: All individuals regardless of vaccination status are required to isolate for either 7 or 10 days, with the date of symptom onset (or the date of the positive test if asymptomatic) being Day 0. Individuals may return after a 7-day isolation so long as they have a negative test collected within 48-hours of their return to campus and they are asymptomatic. Return to campus is contingent upon individuals being fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications and on their symptoms fully improving.
    • A high-quality mask should be worn on campus through

Non-Clinical Students and Employees

  • Exposed: All individuals with COVID-19 exposures are to seek testing on Day 5 after the exposure regardless of vaccination status.
    • A high-quality mask should be worn on campus through day 10
  • Positive:  If you test positive for COVID-19, stay home for at least 5 days and isolate from others in your home.

    You are likely most infectious during these first 5 days.

    • Wear a high-quality mask if you must be around others at home and in public.
    • Do not go places where you are unable to wear a mask. For travel guidance, see CDC’s Travel webpage.
    • Do not travel.
    • Stay home and separate from others as much as possible.
    • Use a separate bathroom, if possible.
    • Take steps to improve ventilation at home, if possible.
    • Don’t share personal household items, like cups, towels, and utensils.
    • Monitor your symptoms. If you have an emergency warning sign (like trouble breathing), seek emergency medical care immediately.
