COVID-19 FAQs for Sisk Health Services Clinic

I have submitted a COVID reporting form and I haven’t received a call from the health clinic.

  • Once you submit a form, the health clinic will contact you within 24 hours. During this time, you need to self-isolate, wear your mask, zoom your classes, and email your instructors with the zoom medical clearance email you received from the health clinic.

My instructor says I don’t have medical clearance to zoom – What do I do?

  • When you completed your COVID reporting form, the health clinic sent you a medical clearance email that you need to forward to your instructors. Please check your inbox for the email and make sure your instructors receive it.

How many days must I quarantine?

  • If you were exposed to a COVID positive student, you MUST isolate for a minimum of 10 days from the last day you were around the student. To be released you must meet three criteria: 1. You must have completed 10 days of isolation; 2. You are fever free for 48 hours; 3. Your symptoms have improved.
  • If you have COVID symptoms and received a COVID test, you will be quarantined while waiting for COVID test results. Once test results are available the health clinic will call you to discuss how many more days of quarantine are required.

Will a negative test result change my quarantine time?

  • If you have been exposed to a COVID positive student, a negative test result will NOT decrease the number of days you are required to quarantine. Symptoms can develop between 2-10 days from exposure. It is important that you self-isolate, wear your mask, and monitor your symptoms during this time. If symptoms develop, please contact the health clinic and complete another student reporting form with your symptoms you are experiencing.

I tested positive for COVID-19. Do need to have another test before returning to school with a negative test result?

  • The health clinic does not require you to have a negative test result before returning to school. To return to campus/class, you must meet three criteria: 1. You must have completed 10 days of isolation; 2. You are fever free for 48 hours; 3. Your symptoms have improved.

Where is the health clinic located?

  • We are located behind the bookstore on the corner of Wright and Tiger Drive.
