After hours: Students may also use the Travelers Rest Family Medicine, 9 McElhaney Road, Travelers Rest, SC, 29690, by appointment only: Monday-Friday, noon-5 p.m. 864-834-3192.
If you’re concerned about your health or are showing symptoms such as fever, cough or shortness of breath, please call your personal doctor or healthcare provider.

If you meet the criteria for testing, DHEC will help arrange testing with your healthcare provider.

Furman encourages students, faculty and staff to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Individuals can lower the risk of transmission by consistently practicing the following simple, healthy habits:
- Wash your hands frequently
- Avoid close contact with those who are sick
- Stay home when you are sick (do not go to class or work)
- Cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth
- Practice good hygiene and other good health habits such as cleaning and disinfecting surfaces, getting plenty of sleep, managing stress, drinking plenty of fluids and eating nutritious food.
We encourage everyone to be diligent in helping to prevent the spread of illness. Students, if you experience any symptoms, please contact the Earle Student Health Center at 864-522-2000. Faculty and staff, please visit the Employee On-Site Clinic or contact your preferred health care provider.
