Student Health Service is committed to safeguard the health of our students in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. The guidelines below are designed to help you navigate these complex circumstances.

COVID-19 Guidelines

Students with Symptoms and/or Exposures

Student Health Service provides care for students who are located in the state of California.  Students currently located outside the state, should consult their primary care provider in their home state. 

Symptoms:

Student Health Service serves as your primary care location to manage any COVID-like symptoms. Call the office at  909-558-8770 for a video visit.  Do not come in person for symptom assessment. Be sure to proactively limit your contact with others until you have contacted Student Health Service for determination of whether isolation is needed. 

  • Mild symptoms - call our office during regular weekday hours to be scheduled for a video visit.
  • Severe symptoms - Call 911 or go to emergency services to be evaluated. If possible, notify them ahead of time of possible COVID-19 infection.

Exposures*:

If you suspect you have been exposed* but have no symptoms, please call Student Health Service at 909-558-8770 to schedule a video visit with a medical provider.  A same day appointment is preferred, but if the exposure is over the weekend, make sure you proactively limit your contact with others until you have contacted Student Health Service for determination of whether quarantine is needed.

  • Clinical rotations - if appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) is worn while interacting with a COVID-19 positive individual, this does not constitute an exposure and typically does not require quarantine or testing. If there is a failure or breach of PPE, please contact Student Health Service for a video visit with a provider.
  • Classes/Community - if you were exposed* to a confirmed COVID-19 case in class or community, please contact Student Health Service for a video visit with a provider. If the exposure occurs on an evening or weekend, limit your contact with others and follow up with Student Health Service on the next business day.

* Close contact is defined as being near someone greater than 15 minutes and at a distance less than 6 feet. This includes interaction during the time period 48 hours prior to symptom development in the suspected/confirmed patient.

Exposed or Not Exposed?

- If you have been exposed to an asymptomatic individual who had contact with a confirmed COVID-19 positive case, you are not considered exposed.

- If you are living with a person who has been quarantined (without symptoms), you are not considered exposed.
