Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to change some of our normal services to maintain a safe environment for our students and staff. All health services will be offered by appointment only. In order to schedule an appointment with the Health Center please call us at 607-436-3573 Monday through Friday 8:00am until 4:30pm. In order to provide you with the safest environment for your health care needs, we can not offer walk - in services at this time.
All students with symptoms of COVID-19 should isolate and call the Health Center for consideration of diagnostic testing. Students will be screened by a medical professional and appointments will be scheduled as necessary.
Asymptomatic students who wish to have testing done for routine surveillance reasons may present to pool testing. Pool testing is available for asymptomatic students . For up to date testing dates and times please see the fall planning page under testing. Students need to preregister online. For additional testing questions please email: email@example.com.
Students must call for medical care, at which time they will speak to a nurse for triage evaluation. If appropriate, a telemedicine appointment will be arranged. Examples of problems that may be handled via telemedicine include medication refills, uncomplicated UTIs, and various follow up care for an established medical problem. In person visits are available at the provider's discretion.
