Health Services has enacted new policies and procedures to respond to concerns about the novel coronavirus. Visits to Health Services will be by appointment only for the Spring 2020 term. We have created a pre-visit risk evaluation screening that must be performed prior to a visit. Please call 309-341-7559 or email email@example.com to schedule an appointment. After the evaluation, patients will be scheduled for an appointment or given home care advice as appropriate.
In addition to our standard precautions, you may note staff wearing masks as indicated for health professionals. We are disinfecting surfaces such as doors, chairs, and tables in the waiting room, and throughout the clinic on an increased schedule during the day. As always, exam rooms are disinfected after every patient use. We will designate separate sick and well exam rooms and waiting areas.

There are many illnesses that cause fevers, cough, and shortness of breath, which also are symptoms of COVID-19. Because of this, it can be hard to know when to seek care. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advises us to be concerned about individuals who have the following symptoms and risk factors:
Health Services encourages any student who may be concerned that they have any of these symptoms or risk factors, or if they are experiencing any unusual symptoms, to call Health Services at 309-341-7559 before visiting. Our nurses will assess the student’s illness, provide care instructions, and inform students what to expect once they arrive, if a visit to Health Services is deemed necessary.
