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 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 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 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.

CDC Self-Care for Coronavirus

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:
