The HWC will be offering COVID-19 testing to all students, faculty and staff who are symptomatic or have been exposed to the virus. Please have your health insurance information available to share with the Health and Wellness Center staff for testing purposes.
Testing for Students
Students should call the Health and Wellness Center to set up an appointment to see a provider. If it is after 5:00 pm Monday-Friday or on Saturday or Sunday, please contact your medical provider, urgent care clinic, or emergency room for evaluation. If your health care provider suspects you may have COVID-19 or you are tested for COVID-19, please isolate at home and contact the Health and Wellness Center at (479) 968-0329 during normal operating hours of Monday – Friday from 8am-5pm.
Testing for Employees
Employees should call the Health and Wellness Center if they think they may have COVID-19 or if they have been exposed to someone who has COVID-19. The HWC does not offer medical visits to employees, however they will be offering testing to faculty and staff for COVID-19.
Returning to normal after testing positive
Persons with COVID-19 who have symptoms and were directed to care for themselves at home may discontinue isolation under the following conditions:
- At least 10 days* have passed since symptom onset and
- At least 24 hours have passed since fever resolved without the use of fever-reducing medications and,
- Other symptoms have improved.
* A small fraction of persons with severe illness may produce replication-competent virus beyond 10 days that may warrant extending duration of isolation and precautions for up to 20 days after symptom onset. Consider consultation with infection control experts.
Persons infected with SARS-CoV-2 who never develop COVID-19 symptoms may discontinue isolation after at least 10 days following the date of their positive RT-PCR test for SARS-CoV-2 RNA.
