If you are feeling ill and experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, stay home and rest until you are well and prepared to return to campus.
Students should contact their instructors and make-up any lost work.
Faculty and staff can alert their dean or supervisor if they plan to miss time due to illness. The University discontinued its case management program and no longer requires individuals with a confirmed case of COVID-19 to report it to SMU.
If you have been exposed to the virus (but are not experiencing symptoms or have a confirmed positive test) monitor your symptoms.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offers useful isolation and quarantine guidance—including when it's best to stay home due to exposure—tailored to your specific vaccination status and date of exposure. (click on Quarantine and Isolation calculator at the top of the page)
