Whether you’re feeling sick with a cold, flu or COVID-19, there are campus resources to help. Here is what you should do if you feel sick.
If you think you may have a cold, the flu or COVID-19, stay home. Most people with COVID-19 experience mild symptoms similar to a cold or the flu. Stay in the same room and minimize your contact/interactions with others. Learn more about isolation and quarantine.
If you’re going to miss class or work due to illness, give your professors or boss a heads up. Let them know that you aren’t feeling well and will be staying home. Be sure to ask about making up assignments, projects or exams if you are going to be out that day.
If you’re feeling sick, contact a medical professional to talk through your symptoms and treatment options before seeking in-person care. Students can also contact the 24/7 NurseLine provided by Medical Services by calling 303-492-5101. This line connects students with medical staff to discuss symptoms and treatment options, including when it’s appropriate to take care of yourself at home or seek medical attention.
Make an appointment at the Public Health Clinic
If you are concerned your symptoms are due to COVID-19, you can make an appointment for a telehealth or in-clinic visit at our Public Health Clinic by scheduling online or calling 303-492-5432. An appointment is required to visit the Public Health Clinic. Drop-in appointments for the Public Health Clinic are not available.
During your appointment, a medical provider will review your symptoms, discuss testing options if needed and provide additional resources to help you feel better.
