Counseling & Health Services will follow the guidelines set forth by SWU regarding COVID precautions: social distancing, face masks, etc. To reduce the number of people in our office at one time, both counseling and medical services will be by appointment only. Please wear a mask, and be prepared for a temperature check upon arrival. If your temperature is at/over 100 degrees, you may reschedule your appointment or change it to a phone consultation or virtual meeting. For a student in isolation or quarantine who is in need of services, we can provide a phone consultation or virtual meeting. Please contact our office with any questions or concerns regarding your situation at or 864-644-5131.
