OHIO COVID Campus Liaisons

OHIO COVID campus liaisons (CCLs) provide direct support to students, faculty and staff on all OHIO campuses who have been affected by COVID-19. Helping individuals access the resources and services they need to successfully manage quarantine or isolation supports the individual and protects the University community. 

Through a partnership with the Athens City-County Health Department and the State of Ohio, CCLs also conduct case investigations and contact tracing for Athens County.

When an OHIO community member tests positive, is exposed to a COVID-positive individual or submits an Incident Report form, they are assigned a CCL, who will be in contact to connect them with appropriate resources and services, including COVID-19 testing. CCLs also process the paperwork that gives people in isolation or quarantine clearance to return to campus; submitting the required COVID-19 Incident Report form promptly and staying in touch with CCLs are important steps in making a timely return to campus.

All communications with CCLs are confidential, private and subject to any applicable HIPAA and/or FERPA regulations, with the goal of balancing the safety of the community and the privacy of the individuals involved. 

Our CCL team is available by phone (740.566.8445) and email (COVIDoperations@ohio.edu) Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., and noon to 5 p.m. on weekends.
