William Paterson University is closely monitoring the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) and developing protocols recommended by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and NJ Department of Health (NJ DOH) regarding screening and prevention.
At this time, there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in New Jersey (updated 2/25/2020). The risk of COVID-19 hitting our campus is low, but it is likely we will continue to see respiratory illnesses that mimic some of the symptoms. Seasonal influenza ("the flu") remains the predominant concern at this time.
Please remember to stay home when you are sick and call your medical provider for guidance. Do not report to work or attend classes if you are ill. It is highly likely that you have either a cold or the flu. The number of cases of active influenza is currently high in the U.S.
Contact your healthcare provider for an appointment or, if you are a student, call Counseling, Health and Wellness for an appointment at 973-720-2360. Call ahead and tell your healthcare provider's office about your recent travel, symptoms, and concerns.
For medical emergencies, call 911.

** MenB vaccine (Trumenba/Bexsero) is NOT the same as MenACWY (Menactra/Menveo) and therefore MenB DOES NOT fulfill the state vaccine requirement for dorming. MenB vaccine is highly recommended but not required for university attendance.
There is a counselor on-call after office hours for psychological emergencies only. If you are experiencing a psychological emergency, and the office is closed, please call 973-720-2257 and ask to speak to the counselor on call. In the event of a medical emergency on campus, please call 911. You may also go to your nearest emergency room for a medical or psychological emergency.
