Health & Wellness


Staying healthy is important for you and for your Beloit community.

Testing will be available for those experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or who has come into contact with a confirmed case. If you suspect you might be sick or contagious, here’s what to do.

Students, faculty, and staff — two weeks before you come to campus, begin following these basic protective practices that will be an expected part of your daily life at the college.


Physical distancing

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.

Required masks/face shields/face coverings

  • In all indoor public spaces
  • In classrooms or any space being used as a classroom
  • Any time six feet of distance cannot be maintained
  • Anytime you feel more secure wearing one
  • Before entering buildings and spaces— you never know, when opening a door you may come face-to-face with someone unexpectedly
  • When requested
  • Masks — reusable and disposable —will be available for faculty, staff, and students.

Daily student wellness self-check

Begin doing this wellness check no less than 14 days before coming to the campus. If you feel ill or experience symptoms, do NOT come to campus.  Notify your academic advisor and stay away from campus until:

  • At least 10 days have passed since your symptoms first appeared and
  • At least 3 days (72 hours) have passed since recovery (resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications) and
  • An improvement in respiratory symptoms (e.g., cough, shortness of breath) 

After arriving on campus, due to the established 14-day incubation period of the virus and the potential increased risks of our collective return to campus, wellness check-ins will be mandatory and recorded in the electronic student health record for the first 14 days on campus. During days 15+ on campus, students will be asked to self-evaluate their health status and symptoms on a daily basis.

If you have symptoms or are ill, contact the Health & Wellness Center and stay in your room.

Students are encouraged to bring thermometers, face masks, and hand sanitizer. The Health and Wellness Center will have these available for students who were not able to bring their own supplies.

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.

Daily faculty and staff wellness self-check

Faculty and staff must self-evaluate their health status and symptoms on a daily basis. This practice should begin no less than 14 days before you expect to return to campus for teaching or for work.

Stay home when ill or experiencing any symptoms for which you do not have an explanation.

Faculty or staff with new or worsening symptoms of illness are not permitted to return to work until:

  • At least 10 days have passed since your symptoms first appeared and
  • At least 3 days (72 hours) have passed since recovery (resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications) and
  • An improvement in respiratory symptoms (e.g., cough, shortness of breath)has happened.
