  • Fever
  • Chills

  • Runny nose or sinus congestion

  • Muscle aches/pain

  • Sore throat

  • Fatigue

  • GI Symptoms

  • Loss of taste or smell

If you are exhibiting any of these symptoms, do not come to campus, do not leave your residence hall room and do not attend any College-related activities. Consult your medical provider and do not return to campus until symptoms have subsided or until medically cleared to do so. If you believe that you may have or have been exposed to COVID-19, complete the College’s COVID-19 Reporting Form.
