What if I have symptoms of COVID-19?

  1. Follow these CDC guidelines if you develop symptoms, even if you’ve been vaccinated.
  2. Monitor your symptoms carefully, report them to your medical provider and follow their advice.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Wear an appropriate face covering if you may be positive for Covid-19 and are around others.
  6. 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.
