Working and Serving at HBU

Self Reporting COVID-19 Cases

Updated Aug. 12, 2021

In order to maintain a safe work environment, please report a confirmed case of COVID-19 to Human Resources at 281-649-3321 or jstrutton@hbu.edu.  Any member of the staff and faculty with COVID-19 will be asked to self-quarantine until at least 10 days since symptoms first appeared; at least 24 hours with no fever without fever-reducing medication and symptoms have improved.  Contact tracing will no longer be required or enforced; and as always, positive cases will not be shared with the HBU community.  Given the transmissibility of the Delta variant of COVID-19, widespread exposure to positive cases is likely.  Please consider getting vaccinated immediately if you have not done so, and mask whenever in public until you are fully vaccinated.

If an employee was exposed to an employee who has a confirmed case, Human Resources will communicate with that individual. Employees who were in close contact will be asked to go home and self-quarantine and to get tested for COVID-19 as soon as possible.
