A Few Health Reminders During COVID-19

We wanted to take a moment to say thank you to the Bradley family for your patience and support during this trying time. We encourage you to continue staying calm and doing your best to remain safe and healthy.

We want to remind you the coronavirus isn’t the only virus circulating at this time. There are many others, including high incidences of the flu, the common cold and RSV. Just because someone is sick doesn’t mean they have COVID-19. Familiarize yourself with the symptoms for each and when it’s appropriate to seek medical attention.

We’ve heard questions about a student being transported to the hospital last night from campus. This was NOT a case of COVID-19 but another illness.

Out of an abundance of caution, emergency personnel are taking more precautions when responding to calls. They may be wearing masks, gowns, and gloves and may ask the patient to do the same, even if they haven’t done so in the past. That doesn’t mean it is automatically a COVID-19 case, these are now necessary precautions.

For your own health, continue to please take the following proper precautions as well: 

  • Wash hands
  • Sneeze or cough into your elbow
  • Stay home if you feel ill (for states not on a stay-in-place order)
  • Practice social distancing
  • Clean and disinfect your home and belongings

Bradley’s Health Services remains open and ready to help if you feel sick. You must call for an appointment (309-677-2700), as walk-ins are not allowed at this time. You may also call after hours, if necessary, and your call will be handled by a healthcare professional.

We will keep you as informed as much as we can during this global pandemic. Continue to monitor your Bradley email account for future updates and information. You can also visit our virus website where we post all communications and update FAQ’s regularly.

Continue to support one another and stay informed so you have the facts.

Some media in Bradley University's current print, video and online materials was acquired before the COVID-19 pandemic. Media acquired after the pandemic began was done so in compliance with Bradley's COVID-19 safety protocols at the time. The ongoing safety of our faculty, staff and students is of the utmost concern during these unprecedented times.
