Monitor Your Health
Monitoring your health and knowing the symptoms of COVID-19 can help stop the spread of the virus. People with COVID-19 have reported a wide range of symptoms, from mild to severe. Symptoms to watch for include fever or chills, cough, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting and diarrhea. More information on the signs and symptoms of COVID-19 can be found on the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) COVID-19 website.
In addition to monitoring symptoms and taking everyday precautions, it is crucial that all students and employees who spend time on campus, and who are not fully vaccinated, regularly receives COVID-19 testing. Learn about COVID testing at Drexel.
