If You Are Sick

If you are sick, stay home.

Protect yourself. Even if you don't have COVID-19, illness makes you more susceptible to viral infections.

Protect others. Even if you have a mild case of COVID-19, you can spread it to others who may have more serious reactions.

Communicate. Let your supervisor and/or faculty members know if you are sick and unable to attend campus.

Be flexible. Make backup plans to cover your responsibilities if you or someone in your life gets sick. Prepare to adapt and support students and colleagues who may get sick. 

Be responsible. This is not the time to "power through" an illness. Take the time to get well.

Get Care

If you experience flu-like symptoms, call or email your primary healthcare provider. Students may also contact the Student Health Center. Please do not walk into clinics without calling or emailing ahead.

Please also complete the Pacific University illness survey so that we may provide support and track infection in our community. This survey is private.

If the COVID-19 pandemic is causing an increase in anxiety, hopelessness or isolation, seek support. Students can connect with the Student Counseling Center, which is offering online tools as well as teletherapy services. Employees can find resources through Human Resources and the Employee Assistance Program.
