MU mulls requiring students to self-report positive COVID-19 tests

The University of Missouri may require students to self-report if they have tested positive for the coronavirus, the Columbia Missourian reports. This would reverse an earlier decision stating that the requirement to report test results infringes on medical privacy.

Additionally, MU is working on a walk-up testing site on or near campus for the fall semester.

Students who report a positive test will either be required to move to an undisclosed quarantine area or return home. MU is not currently requiring students to take a COVID-19 test prior to returning to campus.

Campus facilities such as the recreation center and library will be open but with revised hours and increased sanitation policies.
