What To Do If You're Feeling Sick

Who Is My KCU Contact?

The KCU Covid Response Team (1-877-425-0251) serves as the initial point of contact for all KCU employees and students.  The team will assist in the communication to HR (employees) and appropriate college and programmatic contacts (students) to ensure that status of individuals is known while providing a single point of contact and repository for health matter intake and also maintaining a level of confidentiality relative to specific health issues. The response team will follow up for positive screenings, expanded contact tracing, and general questions.

What if I Have a Positive Screening?

Campus members with any positives on the screening questionnaire, exhibiting symptoms and/or have a temperature greater than 100.0 will be required to stay home and make contact with Score 1 at 1-877-425-0251. 

Return to campus after a positive screening can be accomplished by passing the self-screen, or clearance from a healthcare provider (i.e. reported symptom that resulted in positive screening was evaluated and attributed to another medical condition). 

What If I Have A Positive COVID-19 Viral Test?

Campus members who test positive for COVID-19 during the KCU testing events will be notified by KCU’s Score 1 for Health and will receive instructions for proceeding. Students who do not have a healthcare provider within your campus community will be referred to one of KCU’s clinical partners.

Return to campus can be accomplished only after receiving clearance from your healthcare provider with the criteria of having no fever, improved symptoms, and receiving two negative COVID-19 viral tests in a row, taken at least 24 hours apart.

Fully vaccinated people with COVID-19 symptoms 

Although the risk that fully vaccinated people could become severely ill and die of COVID-19 is low, any fully vaccinated person who experiences symptoms consistent with COVID-19 should isolate themselves from others, be clinically evaluated by your PCP for COVID-19, and tested for SARS-CoV-2 if indicated. If your test result is positive, you should isolate at home for 10 days.
