COVID-19 Reporting Forms
COVID-19 Concern Form
Please use this form to submit a concern for a student, faculty, or staff member in the NCC community who may not be following Norwalk Community College COVID-19 policies. This form may be submitted anonymously.
If you wish to self-report about a positive result or potential exposure, please use the COVID-19 Report Form form.
It is important that you provide enough information to enable Management to provide appropriate and adequate investigation of your concern(s). Although this form may be submitted anonymously, please note that sometimes ability to address concern(s) is limited if there is no one to contact about the initial report where follow-up indicates a need for additional information. Concerns regarding faculty and staff will be directed to the COVID-19 Coordinator, while concerns about students will be sent to the Dean of Students.
COVID-19 Report Form
Please fill out the form appropriately and with as much information as possible to ensure appropriate follow-up.
COVID Alert CT App for Contact Tracing
Contact tracing is the process of identifying, assessing, and managing people who have been exposed to someone who has been infected with the COVID-19 virus. Contact tracing and quarantine of contacts identified through contact tracing interrupt transmission between people and are essential public health tools for controlling the virus. Contact tracing can also help people who are at a higher risk of developing severe disease know earlier that they have been exposed so that they can get medical care quicker if they go on to develop symptoms.
This past February in a CSCU COVID-19 email update, employees were informed of an app that would provide an alert if you were in close contact with someone who tests positive for COVID-19. In my office we have downloaded the COVID Alert CT app using both iPhone and Android. You might consider participating in COVID Alert CT by downloading the app. COVID Alert CT is a voluntary, anonymous, exposure-notification smartphone app. You will get an alert if you were in close contact with someone who tests positive for COVID-19. The free mobile app is available to anyone 18 or older who lives, works, or attends college in Connecticut. The more people who participate in COVID Alert CT, the more effective it will be.
What do I do if I find out I was exposed to COVID-19 and I am fully vaccinated?
People who are fully vaccinated do not need to quarantine after contact with someone who had COVID-19. However, fully vaccinated people should be tested 3-5 days after their exposure. Should the vaccinated close contact get a positive test result or experience symptoms, they must self-isolate for 10 days or until fever is gone for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication and other symptoms are improving.
What do I do if I find out I was exposed to COVID-19 and I am NOT vaccinated or only have one dose?
For those considered a close contact who are not vaccinated, they should get a COVID test within 3-5 days of exposure and are not to return to work or class for 14 days from date of exposure and until they have been cleared by the college’s COVID Coordinator (students) or the HR department (employees).
I tested positive for COVID-19. What should I do?
Whether you are vaccinated or unvaccinated, if you have tested positive for COVID-19, you should isolate in order to protect others.
If you do not develop symptoms, you can be around others after 10 days have passed since your positive viral test for COVID-19.
If you have symptoms, you can be around others after:
- 10 days since symptoms first appeared, and
- 24 hours with no fever and without using fever-reducing medicine, and o Other COVID-19 symptoms you have are improving.
