What if I have symptoms of COVID-19?
- Follow these CDC guidelines if you develop symptoms, even if you’ve been vaccinated.
- Monitor your symptoms carefully, report them to your medical provider and follow their advice.
- Testing is available at the University Medical Center and Student Health Center. Even before you test, if you are sick, stay home, self-quarantine and mask around others.
- If you are an employee, contact your supervisor. Students should contact their professors and ask about your options to participate in coursework if you are able. They may request proof of a positive diagnosis. Faculty teaching in-person classes are not required to provide online options due to COVID-19 quarantine or isolation, absent necessary accommodations. They may be flexible when provided legitimate documentation of illness or quarantine orders. Consider getting vaccinated to avoid missing class due to severe illness.
- Wear an appropriate face covering if you may be positive for Covid-19 and are around others.
- Follow instructions about what to do if you test positive.
How do I know if I should self-quarantine or self-isolate?
- If you have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, follow CDC guidance and contact your medical professional and follow their guidance about whether or how to self-quarantine.
- Stay away from others, particularly those individuals who may be at high risk for becoming sick from COVID-19.
- The University no longer provides separate quarantine or isolation space on campus. If you are required to quarantine or isolate, students must return home or to their room for isolation.
- If you are sick, stay home, self-quarantine, mask around others and consult your medical professional, the Student Health Center or University Medical Center. Testing is available at the SHC and UMC.
