Health Monitoring

Updated Aug. 18, 2022

One of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is to stay home if you are not feeling well. DePaul asks students, faculty and staff to conduct a daily self-screening of their health anytime they prepare to visit campus. 

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s self-checker, symptoms of COVID-19 may include:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

Have COVID-19 symptoms or exposure?

DePaul follows current CDC guidance for those with symptoms or who may have been exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID.

If you have possible COVID-19 symptoms with no exposure: Regardless of vaccination status, get tested as soon as possible. Stay home (except to get tested) while you have symptoms and do NOT attend in-person class.

If you were exposed to COVID-19 and have no symptoms: Check CDC guidance to determine if you need to quarantine and when to test.
