updated: March 21, 2023

Report to Health Services if you think you have COVID-19 or have been exposed:


Our priority: Your health

At SPU, our students’ and community’s health is our priority. Current updates on COVID-19 can be found at the Centers for Disease ControlWashington State Department of Health, and Public Health – Seattle & King County.

COVID-19 testing

COVID-19 testing is available at Health Services by appointment. Students should please call Health Services at 206-281-2231 to report any positive test, including a home test. Faculty and staff members should contact Human Resources at 206-281-2809.


Although masks are no longer required indoors on campus, we encourage you to consider wearing your mask when in close contact with others, especially indoors. Masks help prevent infection, so remember it’s still OK to wear your mask when you want to have some added protection for yourself and those around you.

Get Boosted!

If you are eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine booster, we strongly recommend that you get one. Check out the Seattle King County Public Health department website for more information.
