About HCC

Exposure & Positive Tests

POSITIVE TESTS

ANY STUDENT in an on-campus class who tests positive for COVID-19 must immediately inform HCC at covid19report@hcc.edu, and quarantine at home for at least five days. After five days have passed, if they are asymptomatic or their symptoms are resolving (without fever for 24 hours), they may end their quarantine, but for the next five days they must wear a mask when around others to minimize the risk of infecting people they encounter. It is recommended that students contact their primary care provider with COVID questions or concerns. Students are required to submit their test results to confirm the test date. Please refer to this guidance from the CDC for more detailed information.
