CDC Self-Care for Coronavirus

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.

How Student Health Services Can Help

If you are ill, or have concerns that you may have COVID-19, or have been exposed to COVID-19, you can contact Student Health Services at 716-829-3316 for a telehealth visit with a medical provider.

Other health care needs unrelated to COVID-19 can be addressed at Student Health Services. Telehealth visits are safe and convenient for the management of acute and chronic medical issues, preventive health screenings, prescription medications, and specialty referrals. In-office evaluations and services such as immunizations are available to students when needed.
