Health and safety

Find information, resources, and support to help you care for yourself—and to help slow the spread of COVID-19.

What you need to know

Respond to mitigation testing: Help IU identify positive cases and protect the community. Check your email regularly to see if you’ve been selected to participate in mitigation testing. If selected, schedule your test that week and get your results in two to five days.

Focus on your mental health: We know this is a difficult time right now. If you’re feeling anxious, depressed, or stressed out, please know that you’re not alone. IU has resources that can help, including counseling services.

Continue practicing the basics: Best practices haven’t changed. We can all help slow the spread of coronavirus by limiting travel, physically distancing from others, and wearing masks in public.
