What if I’ve been exposed?

June 26, 2020 (updated July 31, 2020)

Exposure can come in a variety of forms. All COVID-19 exposure must be reported.

Essential UMB faculty and staff, and on-campus students who have COVID-19 symptoms can call 800-701-9863 to reach the UMB COVID-19 Exposure Hotline for guidance.

Students not living or working on campus who believe they have been exposed to, or have been diagnosed with COVID-19 should contact their primary care physician or the UMB Student Health Center at 667-214-1899 for medical advice. Students should also contact their school’s student affairs dean to receive support.

The UMB COVID-19 Hotline has a variety of scenarios for exposure and potential exposure along with updated symptoms and guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Please do not send students and employees to the UMB COVID-19 Hotline solely for information or assistance with testing.

Please check your temperature two times a day for 14 days to watch for a fever. If you develop a sore throat, cough, or shortness of breath, please contact a medical provider. The CDC added additional symptoms in June, including congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, or diarrhea.
