How to voluntarily report your vaccination status
Are you fully vaccinated? If so, please let us know by voluntarily providing your information through the COVID Vaccine Uploader in myHR to report status.
If you have common cold-like symptoms (nasal congestion, sore throat, cough), fever, loss of or change in taste or smell or are worried you might have COVID-19, isolate and get tested. Contact your health care provider for guidance. If you have a home COVID-19 test, follow the manufacturer’s directions. If you have symptoms, the recommendation is to continue to isolate and repeat a home test in 24-48 hours if the first test is negative and you still have symptoms.

What to do if you test positive for COVID-19 (regardless of vaccination status)
- Stay home if you are ill, tested positive or are awaiting test results.
- If you test positive for COVID-19, isolate from others for at least five days from when your symptoms started. Day No. 1 is the first full day after the day your symptoms started.
- You are most infectious during the first five days. Wear a high-quality mask when you must be around others you live with.
- If after five days you are fever-free for 24 hours without the use of medication AND your symptoms are improving, or you never had symptoms, you may end isolation after Day No. 5.
- You should wear a high-quality mask when around others through Day 10.
- Avoid being around others who are more likely to get very sick from COVID-19 until at least Day 11.
Recommendations if you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 (regardless of vaccination status):
- Wear a high-quality mask as soon as you find out you were exposed. You can develop COVID-19 up to 10 days after being exposed.
- Wear a mask when around others for 10 days. Day No. 1 is the first full day after your last exposure.
- Get tested five days after your last exposure, even if you do not develop symptoms. If negative, continue wearing a mask through the 10 days following the last exposure. If positive, isolate and follow the above guidance for testing positive.
- If you tested positive in the last 30 days, testing is not recommended unless you develop symptoms.
- Monitor for symptoms. Isolate immediately if symptoms develop.
