Testing for COVID-19

You will be tested only if you meet the current CDC criteria. The criteria include recent travel to mainland China within 14 days, contact with a known case,  a fever, or symptoms of respiratory illness. Consult your health care provider for further details.

Seeking Medical Care​

Seeking Medical Care: Staff and Faculty

Staff and faculty who feel ill should see their health care provider. It is important to contact your health care provider before going in, for your own protection, the protection of other patients, and the protection of your health care providers.

Seeking Medical Care: Students

Students who have paid the health center fee and who feel ill may visit the Student Health Service. DO NOT WALK IN; it is imperative that you call the Student Health Service at 202-651-5090 or email shs@gallaudet.edu for further direction. This is for your own protection, the protection of other patients, and the protection of SHS staff.
