To protect student privacy in the clinic, we are asking students who are waiting for friends to please wait in the hallway. Students should only be inside the clinic if they have a medical need. Escorting another student to the clinic in an emergency is still fine (and very much appreciated!) but students doing so should exit the clinic as soon as a clinic staff member has begun providing care. We would also like to remind students who are in the clinic for a valid reason to keep talk to a minimum. Please do not ask another student why they are visiting the clinic. Think about it like the waiting room of a doctor’s office…would you ever ask another patient what they are being seen for? Or would you be okay with another patient asking you that? Health information is private, no matter the setting. Thank you for respecting this request.
