COVID19 Symptom/Exposure/Absence Reporting Process

COVID_Exposure_Reporting_Process

RIT encourages employees to follow guidance from their local health department. Information provided by the CDC and New York State may also be useful to employees as they determine the duration of their isolation period or when/if they must quarantine.



Positive Test Results

As required by the RIT Safety Plan, RIT employees must report a positive test result in Oracle Employee Self-Service (https://myinfo.rit.edu) (instructions found here). Staff from the COVID hotline will email information to the employee and their supervisor after test results are reported. Employees must also complete an Affirmation of Isolation form and email it to COVID-HR@RIT.edu in order to be eligible for NY COVID-19 pay.


COVID-19 Exposure

Employees may also be required to quarantine if exposed to a COVID positive person (either as a close contact or a household member). As required by the RIT Safety Plan, RIT employees must report a positive household test result in Oracle Employee Self-Service (https://myinfo.rit.edu) (instructions found here).


If you are not sure if you need to quarantine, you can use this information to help you make that determination or contact a medical professional. If you are required to quarantine, you must complete an Affirmation of Quarantine form and email it to COVID-HR@RIT.edu to be eligible for NY COVID-19 pay.
