Coronavirus COVID-19 Response

Goodwin University is committed to ensuring the well-being of our students, faculty, and staff. The University has established a task force to develop protocols for Goodwin's response to the potential risks posed by COVID19. The tracking and disclosure of travel and contact with symptomatic individuals is an important procedure in minimizing the spread of disease. In public health, contact tracing is the process of identifying individuals who may have been in contact with an infected person.

All students, faculty, staff and affiliates, should have a clear and consistent understanding of Goodwin University's procedures for

  • Travel disclosure
  • Exposure disclosure
  • COVID-19 contact tracing
  • COVID-19 voluntary self-isolation
