Student Health Services

Stay healthy this holiday season, whether you spend fall break, the online learning period, and winter break on campus or at home.

Holiday Information

We recommend getting a COVID-19 test 3 – 4 days before heading home to be with family and friends. Before and after testing, continue to take the necessary precautions like practicing social distancing, wearing a face covering, washing your hands and limiting gatherings.

  1. Get tested on campus.
  2. If you test positive, be sure to isolate in a separate bedroom and use a separate bathroom while at home.
  3. Protect your family by following the CDC guidelines for holiday celebrations.

Get a Free Flu Shot

If you missed our on-campus flu shot pop-up events, schedule an appointment at one of our WellStar Student Health Services clinics for a free flu shot before leaving campus.

Returning to Campus

We recommend taking the following steps upon returning to campus:

  1. Be sure to self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms. If you are showing any, even if they are mild, self-quarantine and get tested.
  2. The WellStar Student Health Services clinics will be open, and we encourage you to get tested again upon your arrival back to campus.
  3. Continue social distancing, limiting gatherings, washing your hands often and wearing a face covering when you come back.
