Self-Quarantine/Isolation Procedures

Employees who are (or have been in close contact with someone) exhibiting symptoms consistent with the published symptoms of COVID-19 or have been recently tested for COVID-19 should self-isolate, seek medical advice, and monitor symptoms using the Symptom Monitoring Form during the CDC recommended 14-day period.


Employees who have been tested for COVID-19 should notify Human Resources of their testing date and results by submitting the HR Self-Reporting Form.

In addition, employees who have been exposed to the general public or interacted with others, during which time neither they nor those around them were wearing a face covering or maintaining 6ft social distancing (ex. domestic and international travel, attending a social gathering) may need to self-quarantine for a period of 14 days even if no symptoms of illness are present. 


Employees who believe they meet the above criteria should complete the HR self-reporting form and an HR representative will contact you to provide additional guidance.



If you must self-isolate or quarantine:

  • Stay home. Do not enter the UNF campus for class, work, or any other activity.  
  • The 14-day period begins at the time of HR designation of self-quarantine.
  • Complete the Symptom Monitoring Form daily to track your symptoms.
  • Employees are expected to work remotely if applicable for job functions.
  • Notify HR immediately if diagnosed with COVID-19 by submitting the HR Self-Reporting Form.
  • Medical release is required before returning to work for those that have been tested for COVID-19. A completed symptom monitoring form will be required before returning to work for employees who have observed the self-isolation/quarantine period as a precaution but were not tested for COVID-19.


If you have reported that you are currently experiencing symptoms related to COVID-19, or think you might have COVID-19, please reference the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) guidance on what to do if you are sick, contact your medical provider to seek medical advice, monitor your symptoms and follow the steps below to care for yourself and to help protect other people in your home and community.
