Student Procedures

If you test positive for COVID:

  • Contact the Student Health Center by calling (904) 256-8080 to report your positive case and to schedule an appointment.
  • You will be evaluated by a SHC provider.
  • The SHC will advise you on isolation, masking, and symptom management. Your isolation will not be determined by a number of days; it will be based on the improvement of your symptoms as determined by the SHC.
    • If you live on campus, you will isolate in your current housing assignment. You will not be relocated to a different on-campus isolation space.
    • You will need to wear a mask to visit the dining hall for meals. Meals will not be delivered to you while you are in isolation.
  • If you need a doctor's note for any missed class due to isolation, the SHC can provide you a note via the patient portal after you’ve been evaluated by a SHC provider.
    • COVID Faculty Notifications will not be sent by the Dean of Student’s Office.
  • Your SHC provider will advise you about informing anyone you know is a close contact about your recent positive test results.
    • The University will not conduct COVID contact tracing.

If you don't feel well but haven't been tested for COVID:

  • Stay at home or in your current housing assignment, and contact the Student Health Center at (904) 256-8080 to schedule an appointment.
  • Isolate yourself until your appointment. Stay in your room, wear a mask around others, and only take food to go (while masked) from the dining hall.
  • Refer to your class syllabus for instructions on reporting an absence due to illness. Your SHC appointment discharge paperwork can be used as a doctor's note for class needs.

If you have been exposed to COVID

  • If you have been exposed to COVID but don't have any symptoms, you don't need to do anything.
  • If you have been exposed to COVID and you have developed symptoms, isolate yourself and contact the Student Health Center at (904) 256-8080 to schedule an appointment.
