All students, faculty and staff are responsible for personally assessing their own health and possible exposure to the virus causing COVID-19 at least daily while on campus. This includes a recommendation that each individual consider whether they have experienced any symptoms, including:

  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fever (100.4 F or higher)
  • Chills
  • Muscle pain
  • Sore throat
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

This list is not all possible symptoms. Other less common symptoms have been reported, including gastrointestinal symptoms like nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea. If you exhibit any symptoms, or believe you have been in close contact with someone who may have COVID-19, you should immediately contact your healthcare provider and/or Marietta College Center for Health and Wellness by telephone (740.376.4477), and avoid contact with other individuals.

Employees with symptoms are required to not report to work and should notify their supervisor of their absence in accordance with usual procedures. Employees are required to track their temperature and overall health on each day they work on the College COVID-19 Health Tracking Form (download PDF).

Students with symptoms are required to refrain from attending in-person classes, academic or other activities and to follow other notification guidelines that will be published before classes resume.

These recommendations and requirements will be updated as new information about the virus develops and we monitor and evaluate data. (last updated July 16, 2020)
