Symptom Monitoring and Reporting Guidelines

All students, faculty and staff returning to campus are required to carefully monitor their health on a daily basis. Even the slightest symptom that may be related to COVID-19 should be cause for staying home until cleared to return to campus. The key for ensuring a healthy, efficient campus is clear communication.

Before leaving your home and making your way to campus each day, please ensure that you are healthy to make sure everyone on campus stays safe and well. Please take this survey each day: Daily COVID-19 Symptoms Pre-Screen Tool.

If you are sick or test positive for COVID-19

If you test positive or believe you have been exposed to COVID-19...

Follow the guidance of your healthcare provider and your local public health department regarding treatment and isolation. Please refer to CDC guidance about caring for yourself or someone who is sick.

In the event of a positive test, students will be asked to remain in isolation until cleared by a health care professional for return to in-person classes. Students will always be able to have remote online access to their courses.  Students may be asked to return home if that is possible.

If you exhibit any of the symptoms listed above or feel sick...

Contact your Dean of Students and inform them that you will be out sick. If you experience any COVID-19 symptoms (listed above), we may require you to be tested, remain quarantined until the test results are available.

Northeast Maritime Institute will treat all information related to symptoms, exposure and/or test results confidentially, consistent with local, state and federal requirements.
