Health & Wellness | Embry - Riddle Aeronautical University (2022)

Welcome to the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Wellness Center.

Our mission is to maintain a safe and healthy campus. We understand the student’s health plays a critical role in their academic success and in achieving their ultimate goals.

The Wellness Center is an on-campus doctor’s office away from home. We are available to current enrolled students of the Prescott Campus. Our team is composed of registered nurses, a registered dietitian, two physicians and a medical assistant. We are contracted with an orthopedic surgeon in Prescott for orthopedic needs.

Fall 2022 Health and Wellness Updates

The health and well-being of our students, faculty and staff remains our number one priority. In response to the updated guidance released by the CDC on August 11, 2022, the Embry-Riddle Prescott Campus has revised its campus COVID-19 policies and procedures. These policies, procedures and expectations apply to all campus students and employees.

Isolation — For those who test positive@Model.DrawerTitleSize>

  • Students and employees who test positive for COVID-19 are still expected to isolate off-campus, consistent with current CDC guidelines and advise from their medical professionals.
  • Students and employees who test positive for COVID-19:
    • Must not come to work or class.
    • Must contact the Wellness Center immediately to inform them of their situation and to receive further guidance; they must adhere to any instructions or expectations given to them by the Wellness Center.
    • Must answer the questions posed by the Wellness Center honestly and as accurately as possible. The Wellness Center is working under the authority of the Yavapai County Health Department and Arizona Department of Health Services guidelines and procedures.
  • Employees and off-campus students who test positive for COVID-19 are expected to isolate appropriately, at home.
  • Students who live in on-campus residence halls who test positive for COVID-19 are expected to leave campus and isolate elsewhere. Any expenses incurred will be the responsibility of the student. This is consistent with our campus policies and procedures since the beginning of the pandemic.
  • If a student of employee tests positive for COVID-19, it is their responsibility to consider who they may have exposed and responsibly inform any other individual, whether they be a campus student, employee, or a non-campus person, of the possible exposure.
  • Student and employees who test positive must isolate promptly for at least 5 days after the positive test, wear a high-quality mask (N95 or KN95) around others until they are without fever and for at least 24 hours without the use of medication, and continue masking through day 10.

Quarantine — For those who have been exposed@Model.DrawerTitleSize>

People who are exposed (in close contact) to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 are no longer required to quarantine. This means that the campus will no longer do contact tracing.

  • The updated guidance calls for those who have been exposed to COVID-19 to wear a properly fitted mask indoors and in public for 10 days after exposure and get tested at 5 days or more after exposure. The Wellness Center strongly recommends N95 or KN95 masks.
  • As of this update, faculty will no longer be expected to maintain seating charts for their classes.

Testing availability@Model.DrawerTitleSize>

For the Fall 2022 semester and until further notice, the Wellness Center will provide COVID-19 tests for any member of our campus community who is symptomatic. If non-symptomatic students or employees wish to be tested for any other reason, they may seek tests from any off-campus provider (e.g. Spectrum, CVS, Walgreens).

Additional expectations for all students and employees@Model.DrawerTitleSize>

  • If you do not feel well, do not come to work or classes. Faculty are asked to be understanding of this and reasonably accommodate students who do not come to class because they are not feeling well.
  • Be respectful of others in our community who choose to take additional measures (such as wearing masks) to protect their personal health.

Additional guidance and recommendations for all students and employees@Model.DrawerTitleSize>

  • We strongly encourage all students and employees to get the COVID-19 vaccine and booster shots if they have not already, and to keep current with their vaccines and boosters. Breakthrough cases in those who are vaccinated and boosted tend to be much milder.
  • We strongly encourage everyone in our campus community to always practice good hygiene to stop the spread of communicable disease. This includes distancing when appropriate, frequent handwashing, coughing into your elbow, and wear masks as appropriate.

Non-compliance@Model.DrawerTitleSize>

  • Students who fail to follow anything in these guidelines that is stated as an expectation will be referred to the Dean of Students Office for possible disciplinary action under the Standards of Student Conduct.
  • Employees who fail to follow anything in these guidelines stated as an expectation will be referred to HR.

Privacy@Model.DrawerTitleSize>

  • We recognize that the exceptional circumstances presented by the COVID-19 pandemic require a careful balance between maintaining a safe campus and protecting a student’s or employee’s privacy.
  • A student’s medical information, including a positive COVID-19 test result, will be treated as confidential and private and will only be disclosed to university personnel responsible for the public health of our campuses. Positive test results are only shared on a need-to-know basis, in the least intrusive manner possible.

The Wellness Center is the final authority@Model.DrawerTitleSize>

The Wellness Center staff and physicians work under the ultimate guidance and authority of the Yavapai County Health Department and the State of Arizona. As such, they are the final authority on any campus matter, direction or expectation related to COVID-19.

Covid-19 Vaccine Clinics

  • Free COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics will be held at the Wellness Center cottage (at the back of the building by the basketball courts).
    • Thursday, September 1: 9 a.m.-Noon.
    • Thursday, September 8: Noon-2 p.m.
    • Wednesday, September 14: 9-11 a.m.

Flu Shots

  • Flu Shot Clinics will be announced later this fall.

Monkeypox

  • A helpful comparison: although monkeypox and chickenpox are caused by different viruses, they both result in temporary skin rashes that typically get better and clear up on their own. Most individuals who are infected with monkeypox will recover within a few weeks, without the need for treatment.
  • Monkeypox is spread by close contact and exposure to an infected person's rash, skin lesions, respiratory secretions (during prolonged, face-to-face contact or during intimate physical contact, such as kissing, cuddling, or sex), other bodily fluids, or material (clothes/bedding) contaminated with the virus. Close personal contact, sexual or not, could cause a person to become infected.

The Wellness Center does not operate a clinical medical laboratory. However, blood and other specimens are collected here with medical orders. Specimens are routinely sent to LabCorp for analysis.

It is the student's responsibility to know if their insurance requires a specific lab provider and what lab tests will be covered under their insurance policy. Students are responsible for any unpaid laboratory bills. Each student must have a good understanding of their insurance policy coverage to prevent unnecessary changes.

Additionally, Embry-Riddle's Health & Wellness Center will provide free taxi rides to and from off-campus medical appointments. Calls for taxi rides must come from the Wellness Center.
