  • Students who are sick, who exhibit COVID-19 symptoms, or who answer "yes" to any of the following questions, should not report to campus.
    • Are you or someone in your household currently being tested for COVID-19 and awaiting results?
    • Have you recently been identified as a close contact to a COVID-19 case?
    • Do you have a new or worsening cough?
    • Are you experiencing loss of taste or smell?
    • Are you having difficulty breathing or shortness of breath?
    • Do you or have you had a fever of 100.4 or higher within the last 48 hours?
