Covid-19 Resource Center

Welcome to the COVID-19 Resource Center, Auburn’s centralized, multidisciplinary team created to respond to questions and requests from faculty, staff, parents and students regarding COVID-19. Here, the campus community can self-report positive COVID-19 test results, submit a vaccination request form, read more about COVID-related university policies and receive answers to frequently asked questions.

Self-Reported Positive Covid-19 Tests

The university requires all current students and employees who test positive for COVID-19, regardless of testing location, to complete a confidential Self-Report Form. Self-reported data includes those reports submitted by students, faculty, staff and third-party contractors working on campus who have tested positive for COVID-19.

The Self-Report Form is how an individual notifies Auburn University, through the COVID Resource Center, about their test result. Submission of the form enables the university to help reduce exposure among the campus community by providing necessary contact tracing and follow-up care.

Note: Total positive cases include self-reported numbers and Auburn students and employees tested through sentinel testing. Auburn University Medical Clinic numbers are not added to this number as they include cases that were self-reported and individuals that are not part of the Auburn campus community. For the purposes of this website, Auburn University began tracking self-reported cases on the first day of the fall semester, Aug. 17, 2020. Auburn categorizes self-reported tests based on the date the self-report form is submitted to the university.
