To Take Care DePaul, the university requires students, faculty and staff to report a positive COVID-19 diagnosis, either through the university's secure third-party platform or by calling (773) 207-4340. Many are curious to know, "What happens after a case is reported?" The Community Health Team shares below its process and the approximate time it takes to complete each step. The contact tracing process is based on guidance outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Chicago Department of Public Health. A case is defined as someone who has been medically diagnosed with COVID-19, not a close contact.
