  • - Guidelines for individuals who test positive for COVID-19:
    • Students:  It is preferred that you isolate off-campus at your permanent home address if possible. If this is not possible, you may have options to isolate in your current residential space. Upon testing positive, you must report the results to Campus Life (campuslife@millikin.edu) during business hours and after hours to Public Safety at 217.464.8888. Residential students may also contact their RA. Student-athletes must also report a positive COVID-19 test to their coaching staff. Students should not attend in-person classes or activities for at least 5 days and up to 10 days if symptoms have not improved by day 6. Students may pick up meals as grab-and-go but must wear a mask through day 10 when around other individuals. The University is prepared to support students who have additional needs. Students with questions related to University-owned residence halls and apartments can contact campuslife@millikin.edu. For questions related to privately owned Greek chapters, please contact your house corporation. Students who are experiencing symptoms may contact the Millikin Student Health Clinic at 217.424.6360 during office hours, or Public Safety at 217.464.888 after hours.
    • Employees: You are not expected to work if you are sick. Isolate for at least 5 days. Individuals can be released from isolation after 5 days as long as symptoms are resolving and you are fever-free for at least 24 hours. If you still have symptoms, continue to isolate for up to 5 more days. Employees do not need to re-test at day 5. Masks are required until day 10. 

 

If you receive a message that you were exposed to COVID-19determine your risk of infection and follow guidance for what to do if you were exposed to COVID-19. It is important to wear a high-quality mask (KF94, KN95 or N95) while monitoring your symptoms to help prevent an outbreak on our campus.
