Health & Wellness
Staying healthy is important for you and for your Beloit community.
Before Arriving on Campus
Regular On-Campus Testing
Free COVID-19 testing is available for all students at the Health and Wellness Center. Please watch your email for more information and your testing dates and times. If you suspect you might be sick or contagious, here’s what to do.
Check yourself every day: Use the app!
Evaluate your health status and symptoms every day as part of our commitment to one another. To do your check, use the self-screening app from #CampusClear, which you can download from the Apple App Store, Google Play, or in your browser.
If you are attending classes you ARE REQUIRED to use the app for your daily symptom check.
Why is the app required for students taking classes? The app collects data that can help alert the College to the possibility that illness is spreading, enhancing our efforts to keep everyone at the college healthy and safe.
Students can use their own thermometers, face masks, and hand sanitizer, but the Health and Wellness Center will have these available for students who were not able to bring their own supplies.
Daily faculty and staff wellness self-check
Stay home when you feel ill or experience symptoms for which you do not have an explanation. Do not come to campus.
Notify your supervisor or department chair and stay away from campus until:
- At least 10 days have passed since your symptoms first appeared, and
- At least 24-hours have passed since recovery (resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications) and
- Symptoms (e.g., cough, shortness of breath) have improved.
Physical distancing + masks/face shields/face coverings
Everyone on campus should maintain a distance of six feet from each other at all times.
Physical distancing should always be considered first when planning gatherings, designing workflow processes, arranging spaces, and considering interactions.
A cloth face covering must be worn at all times, inside and outside, unless you are alone in a personal space, such as your office, dorm room, car, or home.
Masks — reusable and disposable —are available for faculty, staff, and students. Students can pick them up at the desk in the Powerhouse, in the Sports Center, and in Residential Life. Faculty and staff should send a SchoolDude request to Facilities.
Health Center and counseling appointments
In-person student Health Center visits will be available by appointment only. In-person counseling visits will be available only with the consent of both counselors and students. Telehealth counseling visits will be available for all students.
