COVID-19 Treatment
Regardless of whether you use Rutgers Student Health or another healthcare provider, if you experience symptoms of COVID-19 (coughing, fever, shortness of breath), or feel you’ve been exposed, make sure to call your healthcare provider for consultation. Do not just show up to your provider’s office.
