Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Response

Stay home if you feel sick

This is a reminder that all Wright State University employees must do their part to help limit the spread of illness during this time.

All employees who are ill or feel ill should remain at home. This includes employees who have been identified as essential personnel with permission to travel to the university.

If you feel sick and have COVID-19 symptoms—fever of over 100.4 F, cough, or shortness of breath—follow this advice from the CDC to care for yourself and to help protect other people in your home and community. If you see a health care provider, you must CALL in advance.

Those who feel ill should contact their health care provider and remember that LiveHealthOnline is available for those on the Wright State health insurance plan. Students still living in Dayton Campus housing who feel ill may contact Student Health Services or your preferred primary care provider. Lake Campus faculty, staff, and students may contact Health and Wellness Services by emailing or reach out to their preferred primary care provider.

Wash your hands frequently, cover your cough, and clean high-touch surfaces frequently. Please be vigilant in practicing social distancing measures to avoid exposure to the coronavirus (COVID-19), help limit its spread, and not overwhelm the health care system:

  • Stay at home as much as possible
  • Keep six feet between you and others
  • Avoid group work settings and large meetings
  • Avoid crowded public places where close contact with others may occur
  • Avoid large gatherings
