Dear Students,

With the recent developments of COVID-19 in the U.S. and the likelihood of cases occurring in our community, Student Health strongly encourages all students with cold and/or flu like symptoms to call (251) 460-7151 before coming to the Student Health Center.

If you feel you are a non-emergency situation, please follow the CDC guidelines and self quarantine. You can call the Alabama Department of Public Health Infectious Disease and Outbreaks Division at 1-800-338-8374 to see if you need to be tested.

We currently are not able to test anyone for COVID-19 at Student Health and are unsure when or if we will be able to do so. If you have an emergency, please call ahead. You can reach the University Hospital Emergency Department at (251) 471-7300 and the Children's & Women's Emergency Department at (251) 415-1144.

If you are seeking an appointment for physicals, immunizations, annual exams, or anything that can be done at a future date it is advised at this time to wait until this crisis is over to make those appointments.

If you have any questions, please call Student Health at (251) 460-7151 or email us at

Thank You,

Ryan Ferguson

Director of Student Health
