Free Covid test kits are available at the Health Service for students only. Monday-Friday 9am-4pm.

Anyone feeling symptoms of Coronavirus must wear a well-fitting mask and isolate until they have a negative test.

What to Do if You Test Positive

If you test positive, you are expected to isolate until you are no longer infectious, regardless of your vaccination status. Do not enter Stevens buildings or participate in Stevens-sponsored in-person activities until you meet the criteria for ending isolation. All positive individuals must follow the CDC Guidance for a positive result.

Positive Covid results must be reported to Student Health Services (students) by emailing [email protected] or Human Resources (employees) [email protected].

While Stevens is no longer conducting universal contact tracing, we remain committed to providing COVID-19 related support for the community. Student Health Services will provide information to you regarding notifying your contacts once you report your positive case as well as information on missing class due to coronavirus.

  • All Students are to report positive cases by emailing [email protected]. If a student is living in on-campus housing they must also report the positive case to the RA at the same time.

  • After students report their positive case, information on isolation, contact tracing, how to request recordings of lectures, and dining information will be emailed to the student.

  • Students who have a roommate who will be staying in the room and live within a distance of a home that does not require public transportation, will be asked to return home.  Those who cannot return home may be placed in the Emergency Rooms in CPH if available. 

  • The “Emergency Rooms” are for ANY campus emergency

  • If Emergency room space is exhausted, students will go to in-room isolation and it will be up to the roommate to find alternate living space if they are uncomfortable staying in the room.

  • Students in isolation may leave only to seek medical care, obtain food or pharmaceuticals.

  • Students in isolation are not permitted to dine in the dining room.

  • All students on the meal plan can:

    • Mobile order and pick up from a Stevens Dining location

    • Mobile order and request delivery from a Stevens Dining location to their building 

    • Mobile order using their Dining Dollars and order food from Grubhub that can be delivered to the building. 

  • Student Health Services will email residential students when they are cleared to end isolation.
