Return to Campus - COVID-19 Testing 

Dear Saint Mary’s Students, 

We want to share with you the testing plan for your return in January.  We had a successful testing program for Fall and in order to continue to mitigate the risk of COVID and support students in their return to campus, the College requires you to have a COVID test upon your arrival on Sunday, January 3, 2021. A second COVID test is also required on Thursday, January 7, 2021. 

Testing will take place: 

Sunday, January 3, 2021: 9:00am-4:00pm (in the front of campus, Br. Urban Gregory parking lot, where Housing check-in will be located)

Tuesday, January 5, 2021:  1:00pm- 5:00pm (in front of the Health and Wellness Center, Augustine Hall)

Health Resources During the Academic Year

Our Clinicians provide medical services in an urgent care model to all full-time undergraduate students (and international graduate students) for illnesses and injuries. For serious or chronic illnesses, students are assessed by our Clinicians then referred or “bridged” to hospitals and medical providers in the community or to their primary medical provider at home.

There is a $20 Health & Wellness appointment fee due at time of service. Please note that our services are for both residential and off campus students.

There may be charges for prescription medications, supplies, and immunizations. Services off campus such as laboratory testing, x-rays, consulting specialists, and hospitalizations are not covered by the College. In these cases, your health insurance would be used.

Due to COVID-19, the Health & Wellness Center will utilize telehealth and limited in-person visits for medical services. Outside of a critical need to meet with a student in person, which will be determined by our practitioners, the majority of health services will be offered via telemedicine. We will screen all students prior to entry at the Health & Wellness Center and we will not be offering walk-in services, so we ask that you call ahead.

For medical needs, call the Health and Wellness Center at (925) 631-4254. Outside of normal business hours, students will be connected to a nurse advice line for medical needs. This website provides information for local off-campus resources. For administrative questions, call us or email us at healthcenter@stmarys-ca.edu

If you are experiencing a medical emergency call 911.

Students who have been diagnosed with COVID-19, or those who have a known exposure to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 are required to report this information to the Health and Wellness Center.
