Eastern Virginia Medical School is closely monitoring the ongoing Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) outbreak and consulting with our own institutional experts, as well as experts from the CDC, Virginia Department of Health, Sentara Healthcare, Children’s Hospital of The King's Daughters and other partners. Our top priority is the health, safety and well-being of students, residents, staff and faculty, uniquely guided by our mission of “Community focus. World impact.”
We are planning for a variety of scenarios and carefully considering changing conditions and public health guidance.
EVMS remains open and operational, though many actions are being taken to ensure the safety of the community.
If you are exhibiting symptoms, call your primary healthcare provider. For a list of signs of COVID-19, see the resource Symptoms of COVID-19.
The Student Health Clinic will remain open. Please call 757.446.5700 to make an appointment.
If you are an EVMS student and suspect you have COVID-19 symptoms or exposure, call the health clinic for phone triage and, if indicated, you will receive an appointment for testing in the drive-through site. This testing is not available to the public and can be obtained only with an appointment for those patients who screen positive as high risk for COVID-19.
All members of the EVMS community are advised to regularly check their institutional email for specific communication.
