COVID-19 Reporting form:
Please go to the link below, sign in using your OneTech username and password, and complete the #COVID-19 Reporting Form to report any of the following:
- You have symptoms of COVID-19
- You have been exposed to COVID-19
- You have been tested for COVID-19
The ATU Health and Wellness Center will review your submission and will call you back with further instruction. Please do not come to campus until you have been advised to do so from the ATU Health and Wellness Center.
If you have been identified as a close contact of someone who is positive for COVID-19, please complete the COVID-19 Reporting Form (see above). The 14-day quarantine is still the safest option and recommended for all unvaccinated persons who are close contacts. However, if you remain asymptomatic for 10 days you can be released after 10 days of quarantine. All close contacts will be instructed to quarantine for 10 days and report any symptoms so they can be evaluated further.
- If you are fully vaccinated (2 weeks after the final dose of your vaccination series) and asymptomatic, then you do not have to quarantine if exposed to COVID-19.
- If the close contact occurs prior to two weeks passing since vaccination with the last dose then you are considered “not fully vaccinated” and a quarantine will be required.
- If you become symptomatic, please be tested and isolate pending your test results. Vaccinated individuals can still get COVID-19 but symptoms are typically milder and are much less likely to require hospitalization.
- Call HWC at 479-968-0329 with questions or complete a COVID-19 Reporting Form to receive a call back from HWC.

People who had the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine and meet the below criteria should get a booster shot six months after their second dose:
- Ages 65 years and older and residents in long-term care settings
- Ages 50 to 64 with certain underlying medical conditions
People who had the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine and meet the below criteria may get a booster shot six months after their second dose:
- Ages 18 to 49 with certain underlying medical conditions
- Ages 18 to 64 are at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of an occupational or institutional setting (teachers, healthcare, etc.)
The ATU HWC does not provide Pfizer vaccines so booster doses should be sought elsewhere. Those who received the Moderna vaccine and the Johnson and Johnson vaccine should wait for further guidance from the CDC/ADH. They are not currently eligible for a booster dose.
