Dear members of the university community,
We have been notified that a student has tested positive for the coronavirus. The student has informed us that the only time the student was on campus at the Law Library was on March 7, 2020.
Out of an abundance of caution and based on the fact that 17 days have passed since the student was on campus, it is unlikely that other members of the university community were exposed. The student was tested off campus and self-reported results to the student's dean.
Any member of the university community who develops symptoms associated with the coronavirus - dry cough and fever - should seek medical attention.
FIU Health and the Student Health Clinics are seeing patients by appointment only. All patients should call ahead and speak with a provider prior to entering the premises. Again, for the safety and welfare of all, please call ahead.
Contact FIU Student Health Services at 305-348-2401.
Faculty, staff and other members of the community may contact FIU Health at 305-348-3627(DOCS).
FIU Health and the Student Health Clinics providers will likely be offering telemedicine consultations next week.
Please look for the announcement in the coming days.
Please visit the FIU coronavirus webpage for updates, resources and additional information.
Stay safe and healthy. Thank you.
