The University, in accordance with the Governor Cuomo's PAUS executive order, has mandated that all non-essential University personnel work from home in order to help curb the spread of the virus. As a member of the Pace Community, if you have concerns about illness or exposure, it's vitally important to adhere to the following guidelines:
What to Do If You Have Concerns About Infection or Exposure
If you are concerned about a possible exposure to COVID-19, you should:
- >> Self-isolate until you have consulted with a medical professional.
- >> Contact your health care provider or University Health Care to get instructions and the latest care guidelines.
If you feel sick with a fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, you should:
- >> Call ahead to your doctor’s office or emergency room and advise them of your symptoms and potential exposure.
- >> You can also contact University Health Care.
If you have a pending COVID-19 test, you should:
- >> Please be thoughtful about the Pace Community and let us know that you have a pending test. The NYS Department of Health will notify us of a positive result, but advance warning can help in the University’s public health efforts.
- >> If you are a student: go through University Health Care and use the online confidential patient portal.
- >> If you are a Pace employee: please contact your direct supervisor.
- >> If you are a Pace faculty member, please tell your department chair.
If you have received a positive COVID-19 test result, you should:
- >> Self-isolate and follow all Department of Health guidelines.
- >> Focus on getting the care that you need and getting better.
- >> The NYS Department of Health will notify Pace of a positive result, but if you can contact University Health Care or the switchboard, that will be helpful in our public health efforts.
