COVID-19 Case Alerts Protocol
Chowan University relies on the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, known commonly as the Clery Act, to guide communications decisions regarding confirmed COVID-19 cases.
Per the Clery Act, Chowan University will post a campus notification when 1) a public health agency has confirmed via a COVID-19 test that a member of the community has the virus AND 2) the individual was recently on the campus. Chowan University will conduct contact tracing for student or employee cases that fit these criteria in conjunction with the local health department. Under HIPAA and FERPA regulations, Chowan University is unable to provide details about individual cases.
Protocols may change. Please continue to check this page for updates.
