Everyone has a day when they wake in the morning and exhibit some sort of a symptom that could be associated with COVID-19 whether it’s a cold, allergies, or it actually is COVID. If you are unsure about what to do, here are some options:
- Take a rapid COVID-19 test. Always be sure to have some on hand. You can find resources for obtaining them. If you test positive, please follow the directions for testing positive for on-campus students or testing positive for off-campus students.
- If your test is negative, but you had an exposure to someone who tested positive to COVID-19 or if you recently engaged in activities that might expose you to COVID, such as large, crowded indoor events or travel, follow the directions for student exposures.
- Stay in your room or at home. Reach out to your instructors explaining that you are sick and awaiting guidance from the contact tracing team.
Please do not be a “hero” and come to campus if you are sick with COVID or with anything else that could infect other people! Part of being a responsible community member is knowing when to stay home. Everyone around you will appreciate your choice to stay home when you are sick.
