Centers for Disease Control & Prevention provides guidance for those who either test positive, have symptoms, or have been a close contact of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.
If you are ill, you should test for COVID-19. You can use a home test kit available at pharmacies and on-campus sites. You can also contact Student Health Services for an appointment. If you test positive, and have an underlying medical condition that puts you at higher risk for experiencing a severe outcome of COVID-19, please contact your health care provider or Student Health Services to learn about treatment options.
If you have been exposed to COVID-19 and do not have symptoms:
If you have symptoms and test negative with a home antigen test, you should repeat a rapid home antigen test in 48 hours. You can also contact Student Health Services for an appointment for evaluation and testing if you become ill.
In addition to in-person services at our new facility, which includes an on-site pharmacy, Student Health Services continues to offer telehealth visits to students when needed.
The CDC has several resources for what to do if you are sick or caring for someone who is sick with COVID-19. When directed by your health care provider, please consult this resource:
