I’m a student who tested positive.

If you test positive for COVID, either with an at-home antigen test or a on a test issued by an off-campus provider, take the following steps.

1. Complete the Student Positive COVID Test (PCT) Form. Completing this form will support the college in monitoring disease on campus.

2. Isolate in your residence. If you live on campus and have friends or family within driving distance of Portland, we encourage you to contact them to see if you can complete your isolation period with them, taking measures to reduce the risk of disease transmission to them.

3. If you are at high risk of severe disease from COVID, or if your symptoms making you worried or very uncomfortable, seek medical attention.

3a. If it is a weekday between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., seek medical consultation from the Health Service, or from a provider of your choice off campus.

3b. If it is after 4 p.m. or on a weekend, you have the following options:

  1. Seek free medical consultation through L&C’s nursing consultation service at 1-877-617-9531.
  2. Contact DispatchHealth, a mobile urgent care program where medical staff can come to your residence to provide care (fees apply, many insurance programs accepted).
  3. Seek medical consultation at an off-campus medical facility.

4. Read the Guidance for Isolation, which include instructions on masking, leaving your room, informing faculty and supervisors, and accessing meals. Counting your first day of symptoms as your day zero, you must isolate through the end of your day five. If, at the end of your day five, your symptoms are improving, and you’ve had no fever without the use of fever-reducing medication for 24 hours, you can end isolation, but you must wear a well-fitting mask through your day 10, and not eat around others through day 10.
