Case Management/Contact Tracing

Marshall University has collaborated with the Cabell-Huntington Health Department, Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine and Marshall Health to develop appropriate protocols for case management and contact tracing for cases that may occur on campus.

All contacts received by the university that indicate a potential exposure to COVID-19 are immediately traced by trained public health contact tracers from our campus, and immediate actions to isolate individuals are implemented. Marshall University has designated an on-campus isolation area for persons residing in Housing and Residence Life facilities. Students living off campus are offered on-campus isolation on a case-by-case basis.

Formal case management plans and operating procedures have been developed in consultation with the county health department. These plans detail the case management process, roles and responsibilities, contact tracing, medical support and quarantine for on-campus residents, communication protocols, and case-specific cleaning and disinfection.
