Current cases (see definitions below):

  • 0 active cases with direct campus impact

There has been one reported on-campus exposure resulting in a positive case.

A COVID-19 dashboard tracking active cases is updated every week. Due to privacy concerns, HSC can offer only limited case information.

*Please review HSC’s current COVID-19 reporting guidelines.

When a positive case is reported, contact tracing is used to determine if/when the student or employee was last on campus and their interactions. Team members who have been in close contact with a positive case are notified and provided guidance.

Close contact is defined as being within six feet of someone with COVID-19 for over 15 minutes, starting 48 hours before symptoms start, regardless of whether face coverings are worn, according to the CDC.

Please report all positive or negative COVID-19 test results and potential exposures to HSCCOVID@unthsc.edu.

Team members are encouraged to review the HSC reopening plan and Frequently Asked Questions. These pages are continually updated with current information.
