What should I do if I’m feeling sick?
If you feel sick and have not been notified that you were exposed to a COVID-19 positive case in the last two weeks, do not come to campus (or leave your on-campus residence) or attend in-person classes and meetings, and follow these 4 steps:
- Seek medical attention. Students may schedule a telehealth appointment or message with a Student Health Services provider via myhealth.lmu.edu. Staff and faculty should contact their medical provider.
- Get tested. COVID-19 tests are available free of charge to members of the LMU community. Schedule your appointment at lmu.edu/covidappointments and email COVIDTesting@lmu.edu to notify them of your appointment time and that you are symptomatic so they can make special arrangements. You are also welcome to take a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test through your medical provider, an LA County community test site, or other testing location. Due to reduced accuracy of antigen, rapid antigen, or rapid PCR tests, we recommend that you still take a PCR test even if have already received a rapid test.
- Stay home and isolate yourself. While you await your COVID test/results and even if you test negative - Do not leave your residence or socialize with others until you are fever-free and symptoms have subsided for 24 hours - this includes going to class, work, and eating in the dining halls. Do your best to isolate away from your household members – avoid sharing a room and bathroom if at all possible. If you must enter common areas in your residence, wear a mask and stay at least 6 feet away from others.
- After you seek medical care, if your doctor believes you have COVID-19 or you have received a positive COVID-19 test, please immediately isolate, and contact the LMU COVID Support Team for further instructions and resources.
If you know you have been exposed to a positive case, and you have developed symptoms, please contact COVID Support as soon as possible LMU COVID Support Team
