As a faculty or staff member, what do I do if I feel ill?

Faculty and Staff – if you feel ill:

If you feel ill or have been, please follow the guidance below:

  • During regular business hours call the Carroll College Wellness Center 9 am-12 pm and 1 pm-4 pm Monday through Friday (do not go to the center before calling first) or call your local healthcare provider.
    • Carroll College Wellness Center: 406-447-5441
    • The Wellness Center Staff will ask you a series of COVID-related questions about symptoms you may be experiencing such as:
      • Cough
      • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
      • Fever – 100.4° and above 
      • Chills
      • Runny nose or new sinus congestion
      • Muscle pain
      • Headache
      • Sore throat
      • Fatigue
      • New loss of taste or smell
      • This list does not include all possible symptoms. Other less common symptoms have been reported, including gastrointestinal symptoms like nausea, vomiting or diarrhea. 
  • After hours, call the St. Peter’s Urgent Care hotline at: 406-457-4180
  • After assessing your symptoms, the Wellness Center may order a COVID-19 test.

If you are tested, until test results are obtained:

  • Stay home until instructed otherwise by Lewis & Clark Public Health or a healthcare professional.
  • Do not go to work, school or public areas.  
  • Notify your supervisors that you are sick or suspect you may be sick and will not attend class/work/practice.
  • Ask friends or family members to do your shopping or use a grocery delivery service.
  • Isolate yourself from people and animals in your home – stay in a specific room away from other people and use a separate bathroom if available. Limit contact with pets and other animals. If possible, have a member of your household care for them. If you must care for an animal, wear a face covering and wash your hands before and after you interact with them. 

After test results are obtained:

  • An interviewer from public health will contact you if you (re)test positive for COVID-19, usually by phone. 
  • If you have a confirmed case of COVID-19, the interviewer will help you understand what to do next and what support is available.
  • Lewis & Clark Public Health will let you know how long you should isolate yourself if you tested positive for COVID-19.  
  • If you have a confirmed case of COVID-19, complete and submit the COVID-19 Reporting Form

If you are not tested: You can return to campus 48 hours after experiencing your last symptom, including having no fever without fever reducer.
