How to report a positive COVID-19 test

All individuals on Campus who have tested positive, including those who have tested using On-Campus Surveillance Testing, must report their positive tests through the “Report a Positive Test, Exposure, or Symptoms” form, located in the MyNCC Portal and NCC Mobile App.

EMPLOYEES Please note, moving forward, do not contact COVIDHR@ncc.edu if you are reporting a positive test, symptoms, or exposure. All reporting must be done through the aforementioned form.

If you test positive for COVID-19:

  • Stay home, or if you are on Campus, leave immediately, regardless of your vaccination status.
  • Complete the “Report a Positive Test, Exposure, or Symptoms” form, located in the MyNCC Portal and NCC Mobile App. The form will ask you to report the date your test was taken, as well as date of first symptoms (if applicable).
  • Please be sure to use your NCC Email address on the first page of the form if you are using the web-based version. Employees - If you do not have an NCC email address, please reach out to the IT department or your supervisor to have one created for you.
  • Please notify your professor (students) or  supervisor (employees) directly that you are reporting a positive test.
