Campus Updates

Health Center Updates

August 25, 2023

The following updates have been provided to students about campus health staff and protocols:

  • New staff:  Carle Health is providing staffing support for Arnold Health Services. I know you will enjoy working with Jen Toohill (APN), and a new RN once we’ve completed the hiring process. AHS is open Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. To schedule an appointment, please call 309-556-3107
  • Pharmacy:  Unfortunately, the Walgreens closest to us is no longer supporting a pharmacy; however, we are pleased that Carle Hospital has a pharmacy that can fill prescriptions during daytime hours, M-F, 8:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. When you’re working with our nurses, please be clear whether you need to fill prescriptions after-hours or on the weekend so they can refer to an appropriate pharmacy.
  • Flu shot/COVID clinic:  We are hosting a flu & COVID shot clinic on October 17 & 18.  More details to come.
  • Fall COVID protocols:  
    • Vaccination strongly encouraged:  Vaccination with the booster remains the best way to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Vaccinations are highly encouraged!  
    • Positive tests:  Students who test positive for COVID-19 must report the illness to Arnold Health Services and isolate for the CDC-required 5 days and then mask for 5 days.
    • Isolation:  Isolation means that you should not go to class, activities or sports; however, you may gather meals to-go and use common bathrooms. For isolation, please talk with your roommate(s) about their comfort level with in-room isolation after a positive COVID-19 test. We highly recommend that you isolate off-campus; however, off-campus isolation will be determined between roommates, based on health needs. We have a minimal number of on-campus isolation spaces. If your rooming situation requires that you isolate off-campus because all campus isolation rooms are full, you must isolate off-campus at your own expense and arrangements.  
  • New student immunizations:  If you have not yet uploaded your immunization records, please do so no later than September 5 using this link.  After this date, a hold may be placed on your account, preventing you from making class changes or registering for future terms.
