March 18th, 2020: COVID-19 update for the SHC


  • Students experiencing fever, chills, cough, and/or body aches who want an appointment should call for scheduling. We have health & safety measures in place to limit waiting room attendees. We want to abide by CDC recommendations of social distancing, therefore, please call for appointments rather than presenting to the SHC for scheduling.
  • Any student/faculty/staff returning from travel abroad or within the country or state should self-quarantine for 14 days as recommended by the CDC.
  • The SHC website offers medical and mental health tools for anyone to access. These tools offer guidance on self-care for minor illnesses when to seek emergency treatment, and mental health tips and screenings to stay healthy.
  • Please visit the Lamar University website for up to date information regarding campus activities.

The Student Health Center is open Monday – Friday 8 am-5 pm. Please call to schedule an appointment at 409-880-8466. Local medical facilities are found here for treatment after hours.
