Self-Isolated Worker

A self-isolated worker is an employee who is working in any percentage on campus, but able to self-isolate. In this circumstance, self-isolation is defined as working in a private space with a closed door OR in a large shared space (such as a laboratory) with good ventilation where you are partitioned off from others, are able to work more than 6-feet apart, and have received approval from your supervisor. If you work in a large shared space, you must always wear a face mask and practice social distancing. Practicing good workplace hygiene, especially with shared equipment, is essential under these conditions. Self-isolated workers do not come into close contact with any other employees, student, and/or customers for an extended period at the workplace. For more information on how to socially distance please visit the and prevent yourself and others from getting sick please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention


Employee working behind closed doors for most of their day and does not have a front facing job where they interact with customers. They may not go to the Union for coffee.

Custodian working alone on a night shift who can maintain 6 feet or more of distance from co-workers during meetings and on breaks.

Graduate student researcher working in a lab, wearing a mask, 6 feet apart from their lab mates. They must clean all shared equipment and may not go to the Union for lunch.

Employees who meet the above definition should be indicated as able to self-isolate while on campus in HCM by their DHR. These workers must also understand this indication removes them from the testing population. As such it also comes with an expectation that they not frequent high traffic areas on campus such as Union, Half Acre Gym, library, in-person classes or athletic events. If a worker would like to include such activities in their campus presence OR they would simply prefer to be in the testing population, they should opt into testing via HCM self service.

Note: that all updates to an employee’s status must be completed AND fully approved in HCM prior to 3:30 pm Thursday to be reflected in the following week’s testing population.
