Counseling, Health, and Wellness Services (CHWS) is pleased to provide an internal contact tracing system for the Puget Sound community. We are working alongside the Tacoma Pierce County Public Health Department (TPCHD) to identify people who have tested positive COVID-19 and people who may be at risk for contracting COVID-19.
Contact tracing is a tried and true public health strategy used to drastically slow the spread of infectious diseases, such as COVID-19.
**These calls are confidential and we are not affiliated with student conduct. Any information you share with the contact tracing team will not be shared without your permission.**
The university provides on-campus spaces for students to isolate and quarantine at no charge. You are provided with a dorm room and bathroom space so you can completely avoid contact with others while you might be infectious.
Because of the campus setting, we follow 14-day quarantine guidelines recommended by the TPCHD for congregate (shared) housing.
Reach us by phone (253.879.1555) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and ask for contact tracing.
As students, faculty, and staff of Puget Sound, it is our responsibility to take these measures to keep our campus and the surrounding Tacoma community safe. We appreciate your cooperation and support!
