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.
To monitor cases on campus, NUNM collects and reports its community-wide case counts every two weeks.
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.
Quarantine and Isolation Guidelines
Per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, please note these new regulations for the general population, including all NUNM non-clinical program students and employees, and healthcare workers, including all NUNM students enrolled in a clinical program, and non-clinical program students working or learning in a clinical setting.
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.
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.
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.
POSITIVE: All individuals regardless of vaccination status are required to isolate for 5 days, with the date of symptom onset (or the date of the positive test if asymptomatic) being day 0. 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.
Do not come to campus for any reason during your isolation. While you isolate, monitor your symptoms, stay in a separate room from other household members and wear a mask if you are around other people.
Students in isolation will be able to participate in their academic courses remotely when this option is available (likely most classes with exception of some labs or tutorials where remote participation is not possible) unless under an interim suspension. Any missed required in-person activities will be made up on an individual basis with assistance from the Office of Student Life and instructors.
It is not possible to make up missed clinic shifts virtually at this time for ND and CCM students. Faculty will work with students who need to miss clinic for COVID-related reasons on a case-by-case basis.
