What do I do if I test positive for COVID-19?
What should I do if I have been exposed to COVID-19?
If you are EXPOSED to COVID-19 (regardless of vaccination status). No quarantine is required unless you develop symptoms. Stay home if you have symptoms or feel sick. This is the same for people who tested positive within the past 90 days. Test 5 days after exposure, or sooner if you have symptoms.

GVSU will no longer conduct their own contact tracing. If you test positive for COVID-19 it is your responsibility to notify any close contacts (within 6 feet for 15 minutes or more over a 24 hour period). This is regardless of whether a mask is worn or whether the contact is fully vaccinated. If contact tracing needs to be done it will be done in partnership with Kent and/or Ottawa County Health Departments.
