Policy for Reporting Covid-19 Issues

February 1, 2021; updated April 13, 2021.

Students should immediately contact Health Services at (785) 670-1470 or email studenthealth@washburn.edu if they:

  1. Have even one COVID symptom on the CDC list
  2. Have been in close contact with someone who is symptomatic
  3. Are awaiting results of a COVID test
  4. Have traveled internationally or to a high-risk location domestically
  5. Have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID
  6. Have been told their COVID test is positive.

If any items on the list above applies to the student, the student should attend classes remotely until Health Services tells the student it is safe to return in person.

If #5 or #6 of the list applies to a student, the student should also contact Dean Glashausser and Dean Lowry at alex.glashausser@washburn.edu and jalen.lowry@washburn.edu.

See more details and list of symptoms at https://washburn.edu/student-life/health-safety/index.html.

Health Services is offering free, convenient Covid testing. Results are usually available within 2-4 days. Call (785) 670-1470 Monday-Friday and get tested the same day. Nasal test results are available in 15 minutes (and have no fear, this is not the "brain-tickler" type). Saliva test results are usually available within 2-4 days.
