If You Become Ill

Safe Return / Health & Wellness

All students, faculty, and staff who report COVID-19 symptoms or who are exposed to the virus must follow the testing, contact tracing and quarantine protocols established by Calvin University, the Kent County Health Department, and the State of Michigan.

A negative test result or a note from your provider that you have been symptoms free for a minimum of 72 hours or 10 days (whichever is longer) is needed to return to campus. The Calvin COVID-19 contact tracers will be in contact with you early in the process and can answer questions about isolation, quarantine, or specific support needs that arise.

Summer Medical Care

If you reside on campus and have a medical emergency call 3-3333. If you reside off campus and have a medical emergency, call 9-1-1. Health Services is available to provide clinical services over the summer months to students on and off campus who live in the local area and some limited services are available to students living in the following states: Alaska, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Nebraska, New York, South Dakota, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Washington DC, Illinois, Maryland and Virginia.

If you experience COVID-19 symptoms and begin to feel ill, first refrain from direct contact with others until you speak with Health Services. Students who are not on campus should first consult their healthcare provider or local hospital for directions if they begin to experience symptoms of COVID-19. Employees should consult with their healthcare provider.

Details about fall semester Health Services protocols will be announced in the future.
