What happens if you get exposed, have symptoms, or test positive for COVID-19?
If you are exposed to or test positive for COVID-19 through the course of the semester, you will be asked to quarantine or isolate. The steps you will be asked to take — from how long to quarantine to who to notify — are outlined in the Student Decision Tree.
Go to boynton.umn.edu/myboynton to schedule COVID-19 testing. If your symptoms are severe and need to be evaluated by a medical provider, call 612-625-3222.
If you are unable to participate in your coursework due to illness, contact your instructor immediately. If verification is requested, please see the Makeup Work for Legitimate Absences Policy.
