Today's update: The number to call

Sept. 8, 2021


That's Augustana Public Safety, the number to call if you have COVID symptoms.

You also should call Augustana Public Safety if you test positive for COVID-19, or find out that you have been exposed to someone who tested positive. They will let you know what steps to take.

• Tomorrow we will update the COVID-19 dashboard. Moving forward, the dashboard will be updated each Monday.
