FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What should I do if I test positive for COVID-19?
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know. Someone from the Dean of Students office will contact you to discuss the details and next steps.
The current CDC guidance includes isolation for a minimum of 5 days after the onset of symptoms. We will discuss these dates with you after you let us know about your positive test result.
Isolation means that you will stay where you are, not attend classes or meetings in person, not leave to get food or for any other reason.
Residential students may need to relocate during their isolation period, depending on their living environment. We will discuss this with you.
Students who live on campus may go home for isolation if they live in the area.
The current CDC guidance also includes wearing a mask around others for an additional 5 days after being released from isolation. Students who have experienced a fever should remain in isolation until they have been fever free without the use of fever-reducing medication for at least 24 hours.
How can I be tested for COVID-19?
The Student Health Center can provide lab-tested PCR tests for students who are symptomatic. Results are generally available the following day. The Student Health Center is open from 8:00am to 4:30pm Monday through Thursday and appointments can be scheduled by calling 740-368-3160.
Students concerned about a potential exposure to COVID-19 but are not symptomatic can take an over-the-counter rapid test. Test kits are available for purchase at local pharmacies, and a limited supply is available through the Dean of Students office.
