If You Become Ill

Summer Health Resources

Students Off-Campus

Students who are not in the Moraga area during the summer months, please first try to contact your primary health care provider at home with your health care concerns.

Students On-Campus

Saint Mary’s College provides limited clinical services over the summer months. Please call (925) 631-4254 or email healthcenter@stmarys-ca.edu with any questions or concerns, as our services will not be available on a walk-in basis.

If you experience any COVID-19 symptoms, first refrain from direct contact with others until you consult with a health care provider by phone. If you are advised to isolate or quarantine, or if you test positive for COVID-19 via a COVID-19 test, notify the Health and Wellness Center immediately so that we can support you and direct you to available resources. 

Saint Mary’s College Health and Wellness Center will reopen for regular hours when fall classes resume. If you have administrative questions about COVID-19 over the summer months, you may call the Health and Wellness Center and someone will return your call within 2 business days. 


SMC Employees

Employees need to contact their supervisor and consider contacting their primary care physician.  SMC Employees must notify HR if receive a labratory-positive test for COVID-19 or if they are unable to work remotely. Add something about not coming to campus if they receive the X. How about adding HR contact info?


All students, staff, and faculty who report COVID-19 symptoms or who are exposed to the virus must follow the testing, contact tracing, and quarantine or isolation protocols established by Saint Mary’s College of California, Contra Costa County, and California Departments of Health.

Call Public Safety at (925) 631-4282 for urgent safety needs while on campus, or call 911 for any medical or psychiatric emergencies.

During the current pandemic, look for emergency warning signs* of COVID-19. If someone is showing any of these signs, seek emergency medical care immediately:

  • Trouble breathing
  • Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
  • New confusion
  • Inability to wake or stay awake
  • Bluish lips or face 

*This list is not all possible symptoms. Please call your medical provider for any other symptoms that are concerning to you. If you call 911, notify the operator that you are seeking care for someone who has COVID-19 symptoms.
