Seattle University’s protocol for addressing reports of suspected or confirmed cases of COVID-19 is based on and consistent with CDC guidance for higher education institutions. When receiving a report that a community member has tested positive, the university makes direct contact with the community member and/or Public Health – Seattle & King County to confirm the test results and determine who may have had close contact with them during their infectious period. The university directly contacts individuals who have had close contact and provides them with appropriate guidance. Additional cleaning and disinfecting is undertaken in areas and common spaces on campus where the community member had been in the 48 hours prior to testing positive. Seattle University updates the Confirmed Cases page of the COVID-19 website as new cases are reported.
With the increase of community transmission in our region and in the United States, everyone should assume that anyone they meet could have COVID-19. By practicing social distancing and staying home you can avoid coming into close contact with someone who is sick, protecting yourself as well as those in our community most at risk for severe disease.
For more information, please visit the university’s COVID-19 website, which is regularly updated and includes answers to frequently asked questions and links to helpful public health resources.
Cases are reported to Seattle University by emailing email@example.com or by contacting the Department of Public Safety at 206-296-5990. New data are published daily and current as of the date and time shown.
