COVID testing is offered at Student Health, but students may also choose to self-test at home or complete testing at an outside facility.
If you have symptoms concerning for COVID, please self-isolate and get tested. Even if you think it's just a cold or allergies, your symptoms could still be due to COVID!
If you have been exposed to someone with COVID and DO NOT have symptoms, please mask in indoor spaces anytime you are around others for 10 days after your last exposure and complete COVID testing on DAY 6 following the exposure (Day 0 is the day of last exposure). If symptoms develop, isolate and get tested sooner.
Students are encouraged to report COVID-19 symptoms and/or positive tests to Student Health during regular business hours for recommendations regarding exposure, testing, and isolation. We strongly recommend using the CDC's Isolation & Exposure Calculator for detailed guidance following a positive test or potential exposure.
Student Health strongly encourages students to be up-to-date with COVID vaccination. Vaccines protect against severe infections, COVID hospitalizations, and complications, such as long COVID. Vaccination also helps to protect others, especially the most vulnerable members of our community.
Updated COVID boosters are now available for 2023-2024. Check your local pharmacy or www.vaccines.gov to find vaccine near you.
For FAQs regarding covid testing, vaccines and more, visit the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) FAQ website.
Use the most protective mask you can that fits you well and that you will wear consistently.
Guidelines for travel are changing frequently with the pandemic. Please visit the CDC's website for the latest recommendations and alerts related to domestic travel, international travel, and cruise ship travel.
