Protecting the Pack

If You Test Positive . . .

For anyone who tests positive for COVID regardless of vaccination status:

  • Any UNM faculty, staff, or student who has tested positive for COVID-19 is required to self-report via UNM's online self-reporting system (excluding HSC clinical employees). See the Policy Statement for Self-Reporting Positive COVID-19 Diagnosis  for more information.
  • UNM presently follows CDC guidance and requires isolation at home for 5 days. *The day that you became symptomatic OR tested positive (whichever comes first) is counted as “Day 0”. You will then count five days starting on the next day and can return to work on day 6as long as you do not have symptoms and are fever-free for 24 hours without medicine.
  • Students can find additional detailed guidance here.
  • Employees can find additional detailed guidance here.
