The Point of Contact (POC), or a designee, will notify potentially exposed employees, students, and third parties (i.e. vendors, contractors, etc.) of the possibility of exposure, without identifying the infected individual.
The POC will notify the DOH Disease Outbreak Division of the situation and coordinate with the UH System.
The POC will work with both the DOH and the UH System to determine if the cancellation of classes, events, and/or closure of buildings/facilities is warranted.
Once a report is confirmed as a COVID-19 case, the POC will immediately send a timely warning announcement informing the campus community that there is a case of COVID- 19, while maintaining the confidentiality of the individual in accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Information in the message shall include date, time, and specific location; names or personally identifiable information should not be included.
