How to Report COVID

Please report all potential COVID19 close contact exposures, pending COVID19 tests, and COVID19 test results to health services. 

During normal business hours, Monday – Friday 8:00am to 5:00pm, please call the Wellness Center at 864-388-8885, or the Case Investigator at 864-388-8907, to report COVID19 test results or close contact exposure.  During this time you will be interviewed by a case investigator who will provide you with quarantine or isolation guidance, and send appropriate notification to your faculty regarding inevitable absences.

If you are reporting COVID19 close contact exposure of positive test results after hours, any weekday after 5:00pm, or on the weekends and holidays, please follow the steps below:

  • Call 864-388-8907 to reach the voicemail of a case investigator 
  • Follow the directions detailed in the recorded message on the Case Investigator’s line
  • Leave a clear, detailed, message with your full name, birth date, reason for calling, and a good phone number to reach you at

A case investigator will return your message, perform a contact tracing interview, and send appropriate notifications on the following business day.

 

A Registered Nurse is available on campus for routine nursing treatments when school is in session, during office hours. Students who need medical care must see the Campus Nurse, who will provide routine nursing treatment and determine if additional medical treatment is needed.

After-hours and on weekends, students who are sick should call 8222 (University Police) for assistance.

Services of medical personnel (other than those with the Montgomery Center for Family Medicine) as well as the cost of medications, treatments, x-rays, etc., prescribed by a physician are the financial responsibility of the student.

The Montgomery Center for Family Medicine will not treat students for chronic illness present before entering Lander University. The Student Health Services fee does not provide for the cost of a general physical exam.

Some over-the-counter medications are available at Health Services; however, students should bring to campus a personal supply of basic medications that are usually taken at home for minor illness.

It is a good idea to bring:

  • Heating Pad
  • Cool Mist Humidifier
  • Thermometer
  • Any physician-prescribed medications for current illnesses

Allergy shots are not given at the Student Health Services. We can arrange for a student in need to receive this service from the Montgomery Center for Family Medicine. Please contact our office at 864-388-8885 for more information.

If the Campus Nurse determines that additional medical treatment is needed, the student will then receive a referral to go to the Montgomery Center for Family Medicine which is a contracted physicians’ office.
