    If You Recently Recovered from COVID-19

    There may be a small number of students who were diagnosed with, and recovered from, COVID-19 within weeks of coming to campus. This affects the protocol for entry testing. Students who have had a positive test for COVID-19 within 90 days (but have recovered for more than 10 days and have no symptoms) will not be re-tested.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that COVID-19 molecular material can persist for up to 90 days, even past the point that patients are infectious. However, if those students are having any symptoms of COVID-19, they may need to be treated as experiencing a COVID-19 recurrence. Students who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 within 90 days prior to coming to campus should inform Student Health Services and submit documentation of their positive COVID-19 test by emailing Students should also schedule a telehealth appointment at for an evaluation.
