Thank you for submitting a Nevada State College Coronavirus Self-Report.

Please read carefully. 

Case Management outreach is prioritized for timing based on the answers you’ve provided in your self-report or you send after reading this to coronavirus@nsc.edu.

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO NOW:

THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ONE: Review the CDC’s latest guidelines on isolation and quarantine here and begin following the guidance specific to you immediately: COVID-19 Quarantine and Isolation | CDC

If you haven’t scheduled a test yet, do so here. Multiple locations. Free. Open to everyone. No insurance required. You do not have to test through this resource, and are encouraged to test at any available testing site, or at home.

Inform your close contacts now that you are experiencing symptoms or have tested positive. By letting your close contacts know they may have been exposed to COVID-19, you are helping to protect them and others within your community. Review this CDC article about How to Notify People You Have Been Around That They May Have Been Exposed To COVID-19

Email coronavirus@nsc.edu to us know when you receive positive or negative test results if you did not already indicate that in the self-report. Sending your result update via email helps us to close out cases faster. You are not required to provide documentation.

You are automatically clear to return to campus when you have followed the recommended guidelines for when it is safe to end your quarantine/isolation and you are no longer symptomatic. For more details on when it is safe to end your quarantine/isolation, read this: COVID-19 Quarantine and Isolation | CDC. You do not need to receive a negative test result to return to campus.
