Emory University continues to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic. Our commitment to the health and safety of our community is paramount.

A team of representatives from across the university, including those from emergency preparedness, health care, and campus life, is working hard to protect students, faculty, and staff. We also continue to work closely with local and state partners. 

You can find resources for the general community here.

As students, faculty, and staff have returned to campus, the university has instituted rigorous protocols around testing and behavioral expectations for those on campus. Emory's COVID-19 Dashboard has information about cases of COVID-19 affecting members of the Emory community.

What to Do if You Have Symptoms

Faculty and Staff

If you have traveled to an affected geographic area within the past 14 days or have been in contact with someone suspected of or confirmed to have COVID-19 and are experiencing fever, cough, or trouble breathing, please contact your health care provider for assessment and further direction.

If you are symptomatic: Stay home and notify your primary care provider and call the Emory Healthcare COVID Information and Nurses line at 404-71-COVID (404.712.6843) for consultation. They will instruct you on your next steps, which may require testing. If you are directed to get a test after calling the COVID-19 hotline and you test positive for COVID-19, you will be advised of next steps. If you test positive for COVID-19 from another testing facility (i.e., public health facility, doctor’s office, etc.), you are required to report the positive test result by calling the Office of Injury Management (OIM) at 404.686.8587, where you will receive further instructions about next steps. Please notify your supervisor regarding your ability to work. If you are having chest pain, serious difficulty breathing, or any other type of medical emergency, call 911 or 404.727.6111 on campus.

Students

Students who have traveled to an affected geographic area within the past 14 days or have been in contact with someone suspected of or confirmed to have COVID-19 and are experiencing fever, cough, or trouble breathing should contact Student Health Services. To do this, send a message to the “COVID Assessment Provider” on your online patient portal and fill out the form. A provider reviews these forms daily from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and will call you to address your concerns and provide individualized guidance. After hours or over the weekend, call Student Health Services at 404.727.7551 and press “0” for the medical advice line. If you are having chest pain, serious difficulty breathing, or any other type of medical emergency, call 911 or 404.727.6111 on campus.
