​​​UHD manages on-campus cases and has its own contact tracers to handle such cases. Anyone diagnosed with COVID shall not return to any UHD or UHS campus until they have submitted a Request to Return to Campus form and have received confirmation that they are allowed to return to campus. UHD officials also work with local health departments to ensure that any non-campus-community individuals who were potentially exposed to the COVID-positive individual are contacted and directed to quarantine when warranted.
