Take Every Precaution to Prevent the Spread of COVID-19
As students return to campus, please adhere to the following guidance:
- Maintain appropriate physical distancing of 6 feet from others
- Wear a cloth facial covering when you are in public settings
- Wash your hands often with soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces
- Monitor your symptoms for COVID-19 every day using the CampusClear app (click to download for Apple iPhone or Android phone)
- Stay home if you are feeling ill or have been in close contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19, have traveled internationally, or have been to a state experiencing a surge in new COVID-19 cases, per the City of Chicago’s Emergency Travel Order
If you are feeling ill or experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, please either complete your daily health screening on the CampusClear app or notify Health Services by calling 773-244-4897 or emailing email@example.com. If you live on campus, please also call your resident assistant or resident director.
If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 outside of business hours, you can call Swedish Covenant’s Covid-19 free, 24/7 hotline at 773-907-7700 for immediate guidance. However, call 911 if you are experiencing symptoms that require immediate medical attention, such as shortness of breath, persistent pain or pressure in the chest, new confusion or inability to arouse, or bluish lips or face.
We all play an important role in preventing the spread of COVID-19. Please visit our Fall 2020 webpage for more information to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 on campus.
Welcome to Health Services
NOTE: To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, we ask that students call (773-244-4897) or email Health Services before walking over to Health Services. We will be conducting secure and confidential tele-health video conferencing whenever possible and making appointments for those who need to physically come to Health Services for medical attention.
With support and direction from Swedish Covenant Hospital, North Park University’s Health Services provides a variety of services for students to improve or maintain their health, obtain appropriate medical care, and make healthy life choices.
