While it is our greatest hope that all students, faculty and staff will remain safe and healthy, given the high transmission rate of COVID-19 locally and nationally, we will have cases reported within our community.
If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, or if you test positive, are presumed positive or believe you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, you must report this information as follows:
All Danforth Campus students (on- or off-campus, undergraduate, graduate or professional)
Habif Health and Wellness Center, 314-935-6666 or COVID Call Center, 314-362-5056
Faculty and staff
COVID Call Center, 314-362-5056
Once notified of a positive case, Occupational Health or Habif will:
- Communicate with the appropriate local health department and initiate any required contact tracing as directed by the health department.
- Notify individuals in the university community identified as a close contact of the individual and advise them of next steps, including any required preventive measures such as testing or quarantine.
- Contact the person’s supervisor or dean to advise on any necessary follow-up within the school or department.
- Advise and coordinate enhanced cleaning and disinfection of affected areas, if necessary.
IMPORTANT: If you become aware of an individual who has tested positive, is presumed positive or has been exposed to COVID-19, please respect the privacy of your fellow colleagues and peers and do not share another person’s confidential health information with others. As a reminder, the university has obligations under HIPAA, FERPA, ADA and other federal and state laws, and depending upon the circumstances such disclosures may constitute a violation of these laws and university policy.
