What To Expect When You Arrive at the Klotz Student Health Center

To promote everyone’s health and safety, the following procedures are in place until further notice . All visitors to the Klotz Student Health Center must enter through the front door of the building only. There, you will be met by a clinician dressed in Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), including special clothing, a mask, and eye goggles. The clinician will take your temperature and ask you a few questions to determine your infection risk.

  • If you have no fever, recent travel, or contact with someone with COVID-19, you may proceed into the building.
  • If you have a fever, recent travel, or contact with someone with COVID-19, you will be given further instructions by the clinician. Note: if you have had contact with someone with COVID-19 or COVID like symptoms in the last 14 days, please call the Klotz SHC at 818-677-3666 for advice before visiting in person.

Thank you for your patience with this new procedure. If you have any symptoms of illness, please call 818-677-3666, Option 1 to arrange an appointment before coming to the SHC. If the clinician decides the problem requires more extensive care than we can provide, we will help you get care at the nearest hospital. We welcome you at the SHC, but want to keep everyone as safe as possible.

Medical Emergency

If you have a medical emergency, please call 911 from any campus phone 24 hours a day. Campus police will answer the call and dispatch officers or paramedics as necessary. A medical emergency is any problem that may require immediate medical attention; it takes priority over less urgent medical complaints. Head injuries, difficulty breathing, chest pain, heavily bleeding wounds, repeated vomiting, extreme pain or feeling faint are just a few examples of emergencies.

If you walk in with an emergency during regular Klotz Student Health Center hours, you will be given immediate attention. If the clinician decides the problem requires more extensive care than we can provide, you will be treated at the nearest hospital.
