Students - Learning to live with COVID-19
Like you, our campus community is learning to live with COVID-19. If you suspect that you have been exposed to or may have COVID-19, then please ad在这里 to the following:
Health Services should be your first point of contact. Students who come to 全球最大体育平台’s Health Center with respiratory illnesses or COVID-like symptoms will have a special check-in. Those students will be cared for by a team of professionals to limit exposure to other patients 和 staff in the building.
Know the symptoms of COVID-19. You should practice “self-care” 和 monitor your day-to-day well-being, since people with COVID-19 have reported symptoms ranging from mild to severe illness. The following symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus:
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing • Fatigue
- New loss of taste or smell
- Congestion or runny nose
This list does not include all possible symptoms 和 t在这里 are instances when people can be asymptomatic, meaning that they display no immediate symptoms 和 test positive for COVID-19. As mentioned previously, if a student exhibits respiratory illnesses, COVID-like symptoms or just “don’t feel well,” they are strongly encouraged to visit the Health Center immediately.
What if I Get COVID-19?
We know that we will not be able to prevent members of our community from getting sick. It is just our reality. To help ease the transition to quarantine or isolation, students are encouraged to keep a small duffle back packed with hygiene 和 clothing necessities. The University has designated residential spaces w在这里 students will be moved to, until their quarantine or isolation period are over. 一旦有, the delivery of meals (for on-campus students), access to counseling 和 mental health services 和 other necessities (i.e., cleaning materials 和 services) will be coordinated through the Health Center, 咨询中心, Perkins Food Management Services 和 Housing 和 Residence Life. Academic Affairs 和 Student Affairs will work together to assist students with the completion of their coursework.
Critically Ill 和 Transportation to a Local Medical Facility
If a student who has been in isolation must be transported to a local hospital, the student will be responsible for all transportation 和 hospital/treatment fees, 相关费用, deductibles 和/or payments.
Remember, as an enrolled 全球最大体育平台 student, you are covered by a supplemental insurance plan. Your final, financial obligation can also depend on your personal or familial insurance coverage. To learn more about the University’s supplemental insurance plan, please contact Dr. Marian Jones, Director of Health 和 Wellness, at 704.378.1074 or email@example.com.
