Coronavirus Self-Monitoring Model for the 2022-2023 Academic Year
This year, we will move to a self-monitoring model and will no longer offer scheduled and administered COVID testing. We will, however, offer home tests available for pick up for Milligan students and personnel experiencing COVID symptoms. These will be available through Milligan Health Services between the hours of 9 am and 2 pm Monday through Friday.
Individuals who test positive for COVID will need to do the following:
- Immediately isolate yourself from others. Do not attend class or any other campus activity for five full days (day 0 is the first day of symptoms or the date of the day of the positive test for those who are asymptomatic). Quarantine facilities and isolation services will no longer be provided on campus. All students should have a personal plan for proper isolation or quarantine should it be necessary.
- Notify your professors, coaches, and any others who need to be made aware of your illness. Students missing class for illness should follow the appropriate makeup protocols stated in each course syllabus.
- Athletes will continue to follow NAIA guidelines, and at this time, COVID testing is no longer required.
- If at any point you feel you need additional medical assistance, please contact Milligan Health Services at 423.461.8667 between the hours of 9 am and 2 pm Monday through Friday or contact a local healthcare provider.
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Milligan community has exhibited true servant-leadership in protecting each other and our campus. We ask that you continue to make the most prudent choice to protect yourself, your family, and our campus community. Continue to be mindful of others and exercise appropriate caution, especially for those who may have compromised health conditions.
