Appalachian State University’s emergency response team routinely monitors situations that could affect campus. Student Health Service physicians and staff are in regular contact with the UNC System, and local and state public health officials, following recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and screening ill students for risk factors. We remain vigilant and will continue to work closely with public health officials should we encounter any suspect illnesses.
If a student has traveled internationally or been around someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 AND has a cough, shortness of breath, or fever, they should call 828-262-3100 and ask to speak with a nurse – before coming to the clinic in person – so we can maximize treatment effectiveness while reducing the potential risk of exposing others.
