If You Hear Reports of Possible Exposure to Coronavirus, Contact COVID-19 HR Response Team

All campus personnel – including supervisors, deans and department heads – who are concerned about potential exposure because they believe an employee has tested positive, is presumptive positive, or has been in contact with someone they think has been infected by the coronavirus (COVID-19), should contact the COVID-19 HR Response Team at 413-687-2283 or COVID19HR@umass.edu.

The team will advise on immediate steps to take and will then alert the appropriate campus office or state agency, which may include campus Environmental Health and Safety, University Health Services or the Massachusetts Department of Public Health for follow-up. The response will include, as appropriate, attention to an individual’s health concerns, notification of potentially affected groups, and steps to manage and clean university facilities.

 Any students, faculty or staff who are concerned about potential exposure to COVID-19 should contact the University Health Services Triage Advice Nurse at 413-577-5229 for further guidance. If students who have gone home test positive in the future, they should also contact the Triage Advice Nurse.
