COVID-19 Update

COVID-19 is a disease caused by a virus named SARS-CoV2. This virus is very contagious and spreads quickly. COVID-19 infections can range from mild to very severe, causing long term health problems or death.

COVID-19 most often causes respiratory symptoms that can feel much like a cold or the flu. Most people infected with COVID-19 have mild symptoms, but some people become severely ill. Some people can develop post-COVID conditions- often called ''Long COVID''. The best prevention measure is to get vaccinated with an updated bivalent vaccine. If you are sick with respiratory symptoms, home COVID tests are available and recommended for use if having possible COVID symptoms. Masking is also recommended when having respiratory symptoms. Visit the Center for Disease Control (CDC) website for more information on COVID-19, prevention, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment and what to do if you are exposed or test positive.

NKU students, staff, and faculty no longer need to report a COVID-19 infection, however, in order to protect the campus community, please stay home if you are acutely ill.

Rapid and PCR COVID testing and COVID vaccinations are available in the Student Health Clinic.

FLU Update

Influenza (flu) is a contagious respiratory illness caused by an influenza virus that infects the nose, throat and lungs. There are two main influenza viruses: type A and B which are responsible for seasonal flu outbreaks each year. Some people, such as those 65 years and older, young children, and people with certain health conditions, are at higher risk of serious flu complications. The best prevention measure is to get vaccinated against the flu each year in the fall. Visit the Center for Disease Control (CDC) website to learn more about the flu, preventions, symptoms, diagnosis and treatment.

Rapid flu testing and flu vaccines are available in Health Services.

If you need to talk to a nurse about symptoms, please call us at (859) 578-5660 between the hours of 8:00 am to 4:30pm.

All services are confidential and will not be disclosed to anyone without your permission.
