Quarantine & Isolation Resources

A positive COVID-19 test, or a possible exposure to someone with COVID, can be a stressful time for individual students, as well as their community around them. That is why we at Wellness wanted to put together a page with a few resources that we feel will be particularly relevant at this time.

We encourage you to browse, share with friends or family, and continue to check in with yourself and how you are feeling.

As a reminder, the Wellness Counselors provide consultations, individual, and group counseling. Reach out by phone (610.409.3100) or email (wellness@ursinus.edu) for more information.
