If you or someone you know needs health care services related to COVID-19, follow these steps:

  • Contact your physician to outline symptoms and discuss next steps. Testing can only occur with a physician referral at this point.
  • If you do not have a physician, call 211 to be referred to a community clinic or other resource that can help.
  • CDC Quarantine Guidelines: CDC updated their quarantine requirements: Previously, those in quarantine had to go 48 hours without a fever and without using fever-reducing medication. Now, patients have to go fever-free for 72 hours without fever-reducing medication. This applies to those currently under quarantine and those who may be quarantined in the future. In addition, before leaving isolation, a patient's other symptoms — including shortness of breath or a cough — must have improved and at least seven days must have passed from when the symptoms first appeared.

  • Grief
  • Depression/Sadness
  • Anxiety/Stress
  • Or any other Mental Health Concerns

For longer-term counseling and other supportive services, counselors can help students make contact with appropriate community resources.
