Confirmed COVID Cases at OU: 3
All suspected or confirmed COVID-19 cases need to be reported to GHC immediately. Reports of cases are handled following CDC guidelines.
Laboratory Confirmed COVID-19 infections
There are several ways OU will learn of a laboratory confirmed COVID-19 case. These include:
- Notification from a local health department (LHD)
The local health department will alert the OU community if, and only if, there is a possible exposure on the OU campus. This is determined after the affected individual has been interviewed by the LHD epidemiology staff. If the LHD contacts OU for assistance on contact tracing, personal information about the affected individual will not be released. Members of the campus community who may have been exposed will be alerted and quarantined if indicated. A campus wide broadcast may or may not be generated based on the exposure.
- Notification by the affected individual
If the affected individual chooses to report the confirmed COVID-19 infection to their professor or supervisor, it must immediately be reported to the GHC Director. No other communication to the campus community should occur.
Please note: All confirmed COVID cases in a resident student will be in self-isolation as directed by the LHD and monitored by the GHC staff. Non-resident OU students and OU employees will be in self-isolation as directed by the LHD for the recommended time period. Self-isolation can be stopped after the individual is fever free for 3 days, symptoms have improved and at least 7 days have passed since symptoms first appeared.
Suspected COVID-19 cases
If a member of the OU community chooses to inform their professor or their supervisor of COVID symptoms:
- The infected individual needs to contact the GHC Director by phone or email. Alternatively, the supervisor or professor may contact the GHC Director with this information.
- The GHC Director will interview the affected individual to ensure that proper self-isolation is in place and to determine the risk of exposure to members of the OU community. All suspected COVID cases in a resident student will be placed in self isolation and monitored by the GHC staff. Nonresident OU students and OU employees will be asked to self-isolate for the recommended time period. Please note, all of the personal information of the affected individual will be kept strictly confidential.
- If the GHC Director determines that any individuals may have been exposed on campus, the Dean of Students will be notified. Further communication will be disseminated, as indicated. Any exposed individuals will be advised to quarantine until 14 days after exposure. If the quarantine is recommended for an on campus resident, the students will be placed in an isolated housing unit on campus and monitored by GHC staff.
