COVID-19

Reporting

 

Effective September 8, 2023, Health Services will NOT accept positive Covid-19 home test results.

 

Students who have symptoms can schedule an appointment with Health Services for a test or provide proof of positive results from an outside provider.

    Students wanting to schedule an appointment with Health Services:

  • Self-schedule in the Patient Portal
  • Complete the C19 QI Form in the portal, under Forms

    Students who have a positive result from an outside provider:

  • E-mail a copy of the positive test result to covidreporting@winthrop.edu
  • Once the results are received, a nurse will contact the student about completing the C19 Q/I Form

A nurse from Health Services will send instructions to the student for isolation, and notify the Dean of Students Office. The Dean of Students Office will send information to the students to give to their professors if needed.

 

*Health Services will only share dates of absence regardless of the health-related issue. No health details will be shared. The Dean of Students Office will issue an absence notification (dates only, not condition) directly to the student. Students will need to forward the absence notification to all relevant faculty.

 

Isolation criteria (regardless of vaccine status)

Students that test positive are required to leave campus and isolate for at least five (5) full days. Students must wear a high-quality mask from day six (6) through day ten (10). You will no longer be considered infectious when ALL of these conditions have been met:

  1. It has been five (5) days since the illness began OR from date of testing for asymptomatic people testing positive.

  2. It has been at least 24 hours since the last fever without taking medication that lowers fever.

  3. All Covid-19 related symptoms have improved.
