What should I do if I receive a positive test result from a physician or entity outside of a Tufts testing facility?
If you receive positive test results from your primary care physician or another entity outside of Tufts, please provide official documentation of your positive test result for our health providers. Please ensure the uploaded documentation specifies your name, date of birth, what type of test was performed, test result, and test date.
Individuals who test positive are removed from surveillance testing for 90 days following a positive test. At the end of 90 days, you will receive an email inviting you back into the testing protocol.
If you were coming to campus regularly at the time of your positive test or onset of symptoms, contact the Jumbo Health Center at firstname.lastname@example.org or 617-627-0467 so that a clinician can evaluate your individual circumstances and notify anyone at Tufts with whom you have had close contact; you may leave a voicemail with your name and contact number if it is off-hours. Your personal information will remain anonymous.
More information about testing is available in the Testing at Tufts resource.
