Point Care

Point University’s top priority is the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff and community. Our goal is to provide all of our students an excellent educational experience. Much of the information on this page is most relevant to our West Point students and the work we are doing to help students safely attend campus. Our online, dual-credit and partnership students are very important to us, and we will do all we can to support our students and partners. Please see below to learn more about Point University’s COVID-19 response plan and the Point Care program. All students and employees should use the decision trees below to navigate a COVID exposure or positive test.

Policies and Compliance

Fall is here, and with it, a surge in COVID cases and other respiratory illnesses. Our campus and surrounding communities are certainly not immune to these challenges. At Point, we are emphasizing two priorities: the health and well-being of our residential community and making the most of an in-person educational experience. We need your help to continue to focus on these priorities.

The first thing you can do is simple: if you are sick, stay home. Students should not come to class or participate in extracurricular activities when sick (including games and/or practices), and employees should not come to work sick. If you are exhibiting any symptoms of COVID, take a COVID test. Anyone who tests positive or exhibits symptoms should follow the decision trees available above. Anyone who has tested positive should email pointcare@point.edu. Employees should also notify their supervisors. Faculty members will be notified when an individual in one of their classes has tested positive.

Second, if you test positive for COVID, follow current CDC guidelines. If you test positive, you should isolate for five days. You should wear a mask around others until day ten or until you have had two negative tests 48 hours apart, whichever comes first.

Residential students, remember that you can access a doctor or counselor through Virtual Care free of charge. Employees who are on Point’s health insurance, remember that SwiftMD telehealth appointments have no copay.

Please let us know if you have any questions and remember to contact Point Care at pointcare@point.edu to report any symptoms, exposures or positive cases.

Thank you for your consideration of others and your help in keeping our community healthy.
