What to Do If I Am Sick

If you are sick with COVID-19 or think you may have COVID-19, stay home and follow advice from your health care provider and the CDC's guidelines.

  • Notify your instructors and complete the online reporting form. This supports the university’s effort to notify individuals of necessary quarantine and stop the spread of COVID-19 on our campuses. It also helps to deploy support and resources to the individual from the Student Health Center.
  • Students should work with their instructors on short-term arrangements to stay on track. Students who require longer-term accommodations (beyond two weeks) will be referred to the Disability Resource Center (DRC).
  • Provide as much detail as possible when you hear from contact tracers to assist them in notifying others who may be sick.
