If You Test Positive

If you test positive for COVID-19, stay home and do not come to UCF. Avoid contact with other people and social gatherings to keep from spreading your illness to others. Employees should notify their supervisor that they are ill and not able to return to work and follow the instructions of their healthcare provider. All students and faculty and staff members should notify UCF that they have tested positive by calling the UCF COVID Line at 407-823-2509.

If Someone You’ve Been Close to Tests Positive

If you know that you have had close contact with a co-worker, visitor, family member or other individual who has confirmed COVID-19, you should stay home and contact your primary care physician, who will determine whether testing is needed. A high-risk exposure generally involves exposure of eyes, nose or mouth, particularly if the individual was in contact of less than 6 feet for a period more than 15 minutes over a 24-hour period with a person infected with COVID-19.
