COVID Response Team
Kent State University has organized a COVID Response Team that will be housed at the DeWeese Health Center.
This university's COVID Response Team will be responsible for managing COVID-19 related information that includes but is not limited to: voluntary self-reporting of COVID-19 status by students, staff and faculty; confirmed cases at DeWeese Health Center; and inquiries related to COVID-19 related topics such as self-isolation, quarantine and travel. It is led by Kent State’s chief university physician and its members include a coordinator, nurses and public health staff, employed by University Health Services.
The purpose of this information the team will manage is to provide advice for the health and safety of students, faculty and staff on all campuses. This guidance is temporary and subject to change depending on the state of Ohio, Center for Disease Control (CDC) and local public health requirements. This page will be monitored and updated accordingly.
Part of Kent State’s strategy to stop the spread of COVID-19 is to make testing available so that individuals who have the virus can learn their status and isolate to prevent them from spreading the virus to others. Widespread testing is available for individuals to learn their status.
