If Student May Have COVID
KBA-01561-N5Y2H3
Question
What process should students follow if they think they have Covid-19?
Answer
The student should first call Ask a Nurse at 507-457-2292. We will triage them and determine if they need to be tested. If we recommend testing we will schedule them for a COVID test, provide education, walk through further steps to take including where and when testing may occur and quarantine details.

We will recommend testing and quarantining for anyone that is symptomatic and/or has had any close contact (within 6 feet for 15 minutes or longer) with someone that has tested positive for COVID-19.

If it is in the evening or weekend and they are experiencing symptoms we will ask them to self-quarantine and report to the emergency room if they are having chest discomfort, shortness of breath and/or having a hard time waking up. If they are not experiencing severe symptoms, then we would ask them to self-quarantine and call us right away Monday morning.
