Coronavirus (COVID-19) Guidance

"Let's all look out for one another by recognizing any COVID-19 related symptoms, trying not to infect others, and knowing when care or any further tests may be needed."
Boyd Health Services asks that students who are experiencing symptoms related to COVID-19 or have been in close contact (within 6 ft for 10 minutes or more) with someone who has tested positive to take proper preventative measures: get Covid-19 tested and self-quarantine.

 

DO NOT VISIT THE HEALTH AND COUNSELING CENTER UNLESS INSTRUCTED TO DO SO.  

In partnership with the Tennessee Department of Health, COVID-19 testing will be conducted at the rear entrance of Boyd Health Services (BHS) at the Ard building. APSU Students, Staff and Faculty who are currently experiencing COVID-19 related symptoms, have been exposed to someone who has tested positive, or those referred by the University for ongoing surveillance are eligible for free testing.

Due to prevention measures taken to reduce the spread of COVID-19, Boyd Health Services is requiring all patients to wear a mask, regardless of vaccination status, while in the clinic unless the provider/staff instruct removal for medical procedure. Staff will ask patients COVID-19 Screening questions prior to entry into the lobby. Those who are presenting COVID-19 symptoms will be referred to testing and may return to the clinic if their testing results are negative. Patients may call our office at (931)221-7107 to schedule an appointment.

Our staff is committed to ensuring the health and safety of those who visit our center. Each team member is trained to help prevent the spread of germs by providing sanitation stations throughout and isolating any patients who are experiencing symptoms. 

It is recommend that you continue to practice the following preventative measures in an effort to stop the spread of germs:

  • Wash hands with soap and warm water for 20 seconds
  • Avoid touching your face or eyes
  • Avoid people who may be ill
  • Cover you cough or sneeze 
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces that are touched frequently
  • Wear face covering in public settings

It is normal to feel stressed during these unprecedented times. If you are struggling, here are somethings you can do to take care of your mental health in face of uncertainty:

  • Separate what is in your control from what is not
  • Do what helps you feel a sense of safety
  • Get outside in nature - even if you are avoiding crowds
  • Challenge yourself to stay in the present
  • Stay connected and reach out if you need some support.
