As you prepare to begin your next year of education, it is crucial that you're taking proper precautions to minimize the exposure and transmission of COVID-19. At all times, follow CDC guidelines for handwashing, facial coverings, and social distancing. Fourteen days prior to orientation or the first day of clinical rotations, you should self-isolate and monitor your temperature and symptoms daily. If at any time you develop a fever or symptoms associated with COVID-19, immediately call the Student Health Center at 478-301-7425. This line is monitored 24/7.
Upon your return to campus, you’ll receive a Bears Care Kit that includes a Mercer cloth mask, hand sanitizer, and digital thermometer. Mercer University has also created an online resource with University policies, protocols for exposure , and answers to frequently asked questions.
