COVID-19 is something that is taken seriously at Lawrence University. We are doing what we can to follow protocols to decrease the transmission of the virus on campus.


If a student is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19:

  • Contact Wellness Services at (920) 832-6574 or

  • DO NOT attend in person classes/activities without a negative COVID test. Avoid in person classes/activities with any illness.
  • Minimize your contacts until feeling better.
  • Double mask or use a KN95 or better mask.
  • Wash your hands frequently.
  • Get your meals and eat in your room instead of the commons.
  • Keep surfaces in your room clean.
  • If after hours:
    • Isolate in your room and contact Wellness Services the next morning.
    • Get a COVID test or other help from Campus Safety (920-832-6999).
    • Call Nurse Direct 24/7 for medical advice at 920-738-2230.
  • Remember COVID-19 can develop any time 2-14 days after an exposure. A negative COVID test today does not mean you will be negative tomorrow.

Testing on Campus

Surveillance Testing

Voluntary PCR testing will take place every Wednesday through Spring Term from 12-4:45pm in the Wellness Center Gym. Students and employees are welcome to attend. No other surveillance testing is scheduled for Spring term unless there are changes in the campus or community COVID-19 levels. The Lawrence Pandemic Planning Team will continue to monitor closely and determine appropriate interventions.
