Protocol for COVID Exposure & Associated Test Results

Updated August 2022



  • A case is a student or employee who has tested positive. 
  • A suspect case is a student or employee who was exposed to a case and is symptomatic but has not yet received test results.
  • A contact/exposure is a student or employee who has had physical contact (of any duration), close contact (within 6 feet for at least 15 minutes without face coverings), or proximate contact (more than 6 feet but in the same room with contact for more than an hour without face coverings) with a case or suspect case.

Exposure Notifications

Campbell University is also partnering with the NC Department of Health & Human Services (NCDHHS) to promote the use of SlowCOVIDNC, the free and official COVID-19 exposure notifications app.  This statewide public health tool is in addition to contact tracing within the campus community.
