COVID-19 reminders for students

Get tested If you feel sick or have any COVID-19 symptoms (opens in a new tab)M. S. Shook Student Health Service (opens in a new tab) provides testing for students.

If you test positive:

  1. Isolate, monitor for symptoms and wear a face covering in any shared living spaces per the App State Coronavirus Information Dashboard (opens in a new tab).
  2. Students living in residence halls need to complete COVID-19 isolation at home, but may isolate in their residence hall rooms, if unable to return home, leaving only to receive medical care.
  3. During the isolation period, students living in residence halls can arrange for Wellness Meal Pick-ups — view instructions on Campus Dining’s Meal Plan page (opens in a new tab).

If your roommate tests positive:

  1. Encourage your roommate to complete the above steps.
  2. Because you have likely been exposed to COVID-19, you should start taking precautions (opens in a new tab) immediately — these include wearing a face covering for at least 10 days, monitoring for symptoms, and getting tested at least 5 days after the exposure, even if you have no symptoms.

Visit the university's Isolation and Exposure (opens in a new tab) page for more information. If you have a concern about a student who is not following COVID-19 health and wellness guidelines (opens in a new tab), you can share your concern with the Dean of Students.
