What To Do If You Feel Sick

Click here for information from the CDC.

The CDC recommends contacting your primary care provider or a local healthcare professional (call before you go) if you feel sick with fever, cough, or have difficulty breathing, and have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19, or if you live in or have recently traveled from an area with ongoing spread of COVID-19. Your healthcare professional will work with state public health officials and the CDC to determine if you need to be tested for COVID-19.


Any travel plans should carefully evaluated. You should also visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website to see COVID-19 specific travel guidelines. Additionally, to reduce the potential for spread, anyone who has traveled to a country under a Level 3 CDC travel warning within the last 14 days is encouraged to immediately self-isolate before returning to campus. (See the CDC travel page for more information.) You should notify the local health department in the community where you are self-isolating for further guidance and support.
