While the threat of Coronavirus still exists, the Student Health has made—and will continue to make—significant changes to our operations to safeguard our community. We are committed to keeping us safe this fall and we will have access to COVID-19 testing for all students as needed when it is needed.  

As a reminder, the primary signs and symptoms of the coronavirus are fever, cough, shortness of breath, muscle/body aches, vomiting/diarrhea, and a sudden loss of taste or smell.  Symptoms can range from mild to severe illness, and appear 2-14 days after you are exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19.

If you are having any of the symptoms listed above it is important you self-isolate in your room immediately and call the Student Health Clinic or Safety.  You will be directed from there as to the next steps in your care.  If you find your roommate is positive for symptoms you must self-quarantine immediately and contact the Student Health Clinic or Safety.   

Seek medical care immediately by calling 911 if someone has emergency warning signs of COVID-19. • Trouble breathing • Persistent pain or pressure in the chest • New confusion • Inability to wake or stay awake • Bluish lips or face
