I am traveling abroad for personal reasons and I need a letter of recovery from COVID-19. Where can I obtain this?

Student Health and Wellness (SHW) will provide letters of recovery for students who tested positive at least 10 days prior to travel, have completely recovered, and have a copy of their lab result.  SHW cannot provide letters of recovery to students who are physically located outside the state of Virginia.  If you meet the above criteria, please schedule a "COVID Questions" appointment through the HealthyHoos patient portal.
