  2. Let IU know of your positive test: Complete the self-report form to let IU know you've tested positive for COVID-19.
  3. Let PFW know of your positive test: Complete the CARE Referral Form for Purdue University Fort Wayne. The CARE team provides support for students on the Fort Wayne campus. 
  4. Check your IU email: Look for an email from IU with information and instructions on isolation.
  5. Monitor your health: Assess your symptoms daily to ensure they're improving. If symptoms worsen or you feel you need medical attention, contact your medical provider.
  6. Ending your isolation: Isolation may end on day 6 as long as you have no symptoms or your symptoms are getting better. If you have a fever or other symptoms, continue to stay in isolation for 10 days or until you have been fever-free for 24 hours with no medication.
