A Lehigh COVID-19 Dashboard has been established and will be updated with new case information weekly during the fall semester.
For privacy reasons, we will not release personally identifiable information for those who test positive for COVID-19. However, contact tracing will be initiated immediately and anyone who has been in close contact with someone who tested positive will be contacted. For purposes of contact tracing, close contact is defined as having been within six feet of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 for a prolonged period of time (longer than 15 minutes).
For the health and safety of our community, it is essential that any Lehigh student who is living on or near campus in the surrounding community who has been tested for COVID-19 or who has a positive test for COVID-19 must notify the HWC immediately (610-758-3870). We cannot emphasize this strongly enough.
- Read up-to-date criteria on the CDC website for symptoms of COVID-19. If you are experiencing symptoms you believe are consistent with COVID-19, please consult with your physician immediately. If you are a student, contact the Health and Wellness Center. The Health and Wellness Center is providing COVID-19 testing for symptomatic students. To be seen at the Health & Wellness Center you must call 610-758-3870. Do not walk into the Health & Wellness Center without calling first.
- Lehigh’s isolation and quarantine protocol is available on the website.
- Continue to check our central webpage dedicated to Lehigh COVID-19 Information.
- Remember to take proper health and safety precautions, such as wearing face coverings, practicing social distancing, washing your hands, disinfecting surfaces frequently and completing your daily COVID-19 Self Assessment on the HawkWatch app. If you do not feel well or are experiencing symptoms, stay home and do not come to campus until receiving further direction.
As a campus community, together we must take proactive measures to reduce the potential for community spread of COVID-19 on our campus and in our communities. This requires all of us to take responsibility for mitigating risk through behaviors that we know promote our health, wellness and safety.
