If you are experiencing symptoms:
If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and please call in advance. If you are experiencing a medical emergency, please call 9-1-1.
- Undergraduate and graduate students – call University Health Services at 609-258-3141. If you are tested for COVID-19 anywhere other than UHS, you must notify UHS by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org so UHS may begin contact tracing.
- Employees – contact your primary care provider or local urgent care center. If you are tested for COVID-19, you must notify UHS by emailing email@example.com so UHS can begin contact tracing.
If you do plan to travel and will be returning to campus, please note:
- You must complete the COVID Risk Assessment Form 3-7 days prior to returning to campus to allow the Global and Community Health Team at UHS to advise whether a 14-day quarantine is required by the University upon return, depending on current State of New Jersey regulations.
- You cannot reduce the length of quarantine by receiving a negative COVID test result. As it can take up to 14 days from exposure to test positive or experience symptoms, negative tests are not sufficient to end self-quarantine early. This is a State of New Jersey requirement.
See the NJ self-quarantine for travelers FAQ for more information.
