As Augusta University prepares to reopen campus for the fall semester, the following steps should be taken in the case of a known COVID-19 case.
Reporting COVID-19 cases
Please promptly report suspected and confirmed COVID-19 illness at Augusta University to REPORTCOVID@augusta.edu or call 706-721-2663. You may also call this number if you are concerned about a potential exposure and would like guidance on whether to self-isolate or quarantine.
When a student or employee develops symptoms, the individual must stay home; if they become ill while on campus, they must leave work or class immediately. Students and employees should report their illness to their professors or supervisors as soon as possible. They also are encouraged to contact their medical care provider for guidance and to call 706-721-1852 for screening and testing options.
Rapid response cleaning
Facilities will deploy a rapid response team available to readily clean and remediate areas where a positive case has been diagnosed. To request assistance, please also email these requests to REPORTCOVID@augusta.edu and provide the following information to help Facilities more quickly respond:
- The last date the individual worked
- The building/room number/area they worked in
- When they received their test result
- Other areas that will need to be cleaned (breakrooms, restrooms, conference rooms, other shared spaces, etc.)
For more information on the cleaning efforts related to COVID-19, please read about the safeguards and protocols Facilities has in place at the university.
