Tested Positive or Exposed to COVID-19?

What to do if you have tested positive for COVID-19 or have been exposed to a positive case:

If you tested positive:

Regardless of your vaccination status, you must report your status to Augsburg. Someone will contact you to help you determine what to do next for isolation. See isolation guidelines from the Minnesota Department of Health.

If you were exposed to someone with COVID-19:

If you are not up to date on the COVID-19 vaccine*, you must report your status to Augsburg. Someone will contact you to help you determine what to do next about quarantine. See quarantine guidelines from the Minnesota Department of Health.

If you are up to date on the COVID-19 vaccine*, you do not need to report your status to Augsburg. Please get tested 5-7 days after you were exposed. If symptoms arise before then, get tested right away. See exposure guidelines for people up to date on their vaccinations from the Minnesota Department of Health.

*What does it mean to be “up to date on the COVID-19 vaccine”?

A person who is up to date on the COVID-19 vaccine:

  • received two doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine at least two weeks ago and no more than five months ago, or
  • received one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at least two weeks ago and no more than two months ago, or
  • was fully vaccinated and has since received a booster.

If you received the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine more than five months ago or the Johnson & Johnson vaccine more than two months ago and have not yet received a booster shot, you are not up to date on your COVID-19 vaccine; you need to report your status to Augsburg if exposed to a positive case.
