The Wellness Center has ‘paused’ any Mandatory Testing during our Summer Season.
The Wellness Center is doing Mandatory Testing on the Unvaccinated Students/Employees. STARTING APRIL 4TH 2022:
The Wellness Center will test a percentage of those who are not Covid-19 Vaccinated by a random draw.
If your name is chosen, you will receive an email the week before you are required to test.
Here are the new times that will be implemented once the Random Draw Percentage goes into effect: Monday – Thursday
8:00AM – 3:00PM
EXCLUDING Lunch hour: 12:00-1:00PM If you are unable to make these times, you may submit an ‘at-home’ test result in order to stay compliant. The test and results need to be uploaded within the Monday-Friday week and before 4:00PM Friday. This image must show the Date/ Time/ your Last, First name written ON the card/cassette test results itself in order to be accepted. Do not email this image as it will only be accepted via the SMCM Health Record portal. For questions, you may call our office during business hours. Please use the Wellness Center SIDE DOOR entrance for all mandatory testing purposes. TESTING FORM: Fill out THIS FORM if our Wellness Center staff has told you to complete the Demographic’s Form in order to participate in the Mandatory Testing.
OFF CAMPUS/ ‘at-home’ TESTING
If you get tested OFF campus or use an ‘at-home’ test and your results come back POSITIVE, you need to UPLOAD your Positive results to your SMCM Health Record and SUBMIT the SELF-REPORT form so we can begin the proper Isolation/ Quarantine Protocols. This image must show the Date/ Time/ your Last, First name written ON the card/cassette test results itself in order to be accepted.
Use the ‘SMCM Health Records’ button to sign in and upload your documents.
Students are asked to complete this SELF-REPORT form. You can also use this form to alert the Wellness Center staff a concern about a roommate/friend/classmate who may be sick with Covid-19 symptoms. Employees are asked to notify their Department Head and Human Resources of sick leave.
Covid-19 Isolation/Quarantine Guidelines
The Wellness Center can only advise students on their Isolation/Quarantine matters as we are a Student Service Center. Employees should consult with their PCP for ALL health concerns.
- Positive Students who have received the booster and are asymptomatic:
Length of Isolation: 10 days after testing. You may shorten this length if you test Negative on day 6.
- Positive Students who are not fully vaccinated or have symptoms:
Length of Isolation: 10 days after testing.
Students who have been in contact with a positive case and are fully vaccinated, do not need to quarantine and do not need to obtain a covid-19 test. Continue to follow social distancing, mask and guest guidelines.
Students who have been in contact with a positive case but are not fully vaccinated, do not need to move to quarantine spaces unless symptoms develop and in consultation with Wellness Center staff. Students should obtain a covid-19 test 5 days following the known contact with the positive case.
These are only guidelines and may change depending on the personal circumstance.
Here is an interactive tool to calculate your quarantine/isolation guidelines from the CDC website:
Please use this interactive tool to assess your health risks if you have been exposed to the COVID-19 virus or feel ill. Contact the Wellness Center after you complete the self-checker if you need further information.
The Coronavirus Self-Checker is an interactive clinical assessment tool that will assist individuals ages 13 and older, and parents and caregivers of children ages 2 to 12 on deciding when to seek testing or medical care if they suspect they or someone they know has contracted COVID-19 or has come into close contact with someone who has COVID-19.
The online, mobile-friendly tool asks a series of questions, and based on the user’s responses, provides recommended actions and resources.
CDC: Covid-19 Booster Tool
Boosters are an important part of protecting yourself from getting seriously ill or dying from COVID-19. They are recommended for most people.
Use the Booster Tool to determine when or if you (or your child) can get one or more COVID-19 boosters.
This tool is intended to help you make decisions about getting COVID-19 vaccinations. It should not be used to diagnose or treat COVID-19.
