Pre-arrival Self-monitoring And Testing

All students should begin self-quarantining and use the LiveSafe app for self-monitoring beginning January 13 or ten days before you return to campus. 

All students are requested to provide a documented negative PCR test result for COVID-19 dated between January 15-20 to the PC Counseling Center at counselingandhealth@presby.edu.

Contact us at campuslife@presby.edu if you have any of the above conditions so that we can arrange an alternative date for your arrival.

Screening at Check-in

The health screening at the Laurens Hall check-in will consist of a temperature check and a questionnaire using the LiveSafe app.

Once your temperature has shown that you are fever-free and the questions on the LiveSafe app are answered, your screen will display either a green checkmark or a red X.

  • If you are fever-free and your screen displays a green checkmark, you will be allowed to proceed with check-in.
  • If you have a fever OR your screen displays a red X, you must return home and contact us at campuslife@presby.edu to arrange an alternative date for your arrival.

If you do not have access to a phone, then a paper copy of the questionnaire will be available for you to complete.

Daily Self-screening

To #ProtectPC, everyone in the Presbyterian College community will be asked to complete daily screening using the LiveSafe app. If at any time your screen displays a red X, call the COVID Helpline at 864-872-0999.
