I am feeling sick. What do I do?

  • Do not go to class or public places if you are feeling sick.
  • If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, contact us at 870-245-5244 to talk through your symptoms. We will help you determine next steps, such as being tested for COVID-19 in our on-campus testing center. You may also use the CDC’s online Self-Checker (report your screening result to OHS).
  • If you are experiencing symptoms non consistent with COVID-19, we can help address those, as well. Please call first to schedule either a telemedicine or in-person appointment: 870-245-5244.

Please note these special protocols in light of the pandemic:

  • Walk-in services are temporarily unavailable to maximize physical distancing and minimize interactions among sick individuals. Call before stopping by: 870-245-5244.
  • Increased telemedicine appointments will be available using secure software that can be accessed via a PC, phone or other mobile device. 
  • In-person appointments will be available as needed following initial phone or telemed screening.
  • There are designated times for well visits that cannot be accommodated via telemedicine, such as allergy shots, TB screening and flu shots.
  • Keep in mind that the majority of illnesses that occur after hours can be seen the next day. Do not go to the Emergency Room if you think you have been exposed to or have symptoms of COVID-19 unless you are having emergency medical symptoms (trouble breathing and pain or pressure in your chest). If you have questions about what to do after hours, check first with your RA and RD.
