Outreach and Contact Tracing

We provide free testing on campus as part of the University’s COVID-19 Testing Protocol. When Georgetown receives a positive test result, our public health team communicates with the individual to offer guidance regarding medical care and isolation.

In addition, Georgetown collaborates with the DC Department of Health.


We are respecting the privacy and medical confidentiality of our community members who have tested positive for COVID-19. Names of individuals who test positive will not be shared publicly without the individual’s consent.

COVID-19 Symptoms

The symptoms of COVID-19 can include a fever (temperature above 100.4), cough, difficulty breathing, chills, muscle pain, headache, diarrhea, sore throat and/or new loss of taste or smell. The incubation period (how soon the symptoms appear from the time of first exposure) for these types of viruses is typically 2-14 days. It is important to remember, though, that many people with COVID-19 do not have any symptoms, so follow all public health instructions you receive, even if you are feeling well.

Anyone who has any symptoms that could be related to COVID-19 should report them through the COVID-19 Symptom Check-In survey via the GU360 mobile app or GU360 website.

For medical advice, students should call the Student Health Center (202-687-2200) or their personal doctor. Other students, staff or faculty should call their personal doctor.
