    On Campus Case Tracker

    Anyone who has been in close contact with an individual who tests positive will receive official notification along with instructions for precautionary steps to take. Campus-wide notification of a positive case will not be sent. Anonymity for these individuals remains paramount. Please respect their privacy so they can focus completely on their own health.
