Our priority: Your health

At SPU, our students’ and community’s health is our priority, and we continue to closely monitor the local and global outbreak. Find out the facts about this viral illness and get answers to FAQ’s. You can also seek reliable information and current updates on COVID-19 from the Centers for Disease ControlWashington State Department of Health, and Public Health - Seattle & King County.

Get Tested!

As you engage in group activities on campus, we invite you to consider getting a Covid-19 screening test. Travel and large gatherings can increase risk for a Covid-19 infection.   

You can schedule a quick and easy screening test at Curative in the Student Union Building (SUB). Curative appointments can be made on the Curative website (www.curative.com, just enter ‘Seattle Pacific University’ as the location).

 

Masks

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.

Current guidelines for close contacts without a booster include a minimum of 5 days of quarantine.  Once you get your booster – upload your documentation into the patient portal for your health record.
