I’ve reported my positive test. What’s the next step?

Once you self report you will be contacted by a member of the Arcadia University Contact Tracing Team shortly. This team will help you trace your most recent movements and contact those who may need to be informed they have been exposed to COVID-19. 



Anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 and has been on campus puts our community at risk for exposure. As per our health and safety guidelines and those from the Pennsylvania Department of Health and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, you must isolate yourself if you test positive. You may be contacted by a member of Arcadia’s contact tracing team and asked to self-quarantine.  Thank you for helping our community remain #ArcadiaStrong and stopping the spread of COVID-19.
