What if I test positive?

If you test positive for COVID-19, do not come to campus. You must isolate off campus for at least five days and will need to be cleared by Health Services before returning to campus. A mask will be required for days 6-10 and you may need to isolate during sleeping hours if you have a roommate. Alternate on-campus housing will be provided during this time if needed. 

For resident students: please remain in your dorm and contact Health Services during business hours at 845-569-3152. If it’s after hours, contact Security at 845-569-3200.

Email your positive test results to HealthServices@msmc.edu and Health Services will contact you with your next steps.

Upon being cleared by Health Services, students may return to campus if their symptoms are mostly resolved: no persistent cough, nasal discharge, or sore throat, and no fever for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications.

Any student needing to isolate because they were COVID-19 positive needs to be cleared by Health Services in order to return to campus. Call 845-569-3152.
