Have you been tested for COVID-19?

If you had close contact with a person ill with COVID-19, the Virginia Department of Health recommends that you stay at home for 14 days after the last time you saw the person and practice social distancing. Social distancing means keeping a distance of at least 6 feet from others. Monitor your health and be aware of the most common signs of COVID-19: fever, cough, or shortness of breath. If you get a fever, cough, or shortness of breath, call 877-ASK-VDH3 right away. If you have more questions about staying home or practicing social distancing, please contact your local health department.

Virginia Western’s priority during the COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) pandemic is to maintain the health and safety of our students, employees and community. If you believe you may have contracted the virus and are being tested, please let us know so that we may adequately clean campus areas and prepare a response.
