If your test is positive, we ask that you isolate in place and not return to campus until you receive a negative test. If you test positive after you have checked-in to the halls, please notify [email protected] and contact SHS. All symptomatic students and students identified as ”close contacts” are required to comply with Student Health Services directives to participate in testing. Symptomatic students MUST test by no later than 48 hours from the onset of symptoms. Students instructed to test by a medical provider, MUST test immediately or contact SHS immediately. Student Health Services (SHS) will be coordinating on-campus testing and vaccine access. Testing hours are available as listed at Student Health Services. Testing can be done at any time during testing hours, appointments are not required. Please do not eat, drink, smoke, brush your teeth or apply lipstick/chapstick 60 minutes prior to your test.
