While there have not been any additional linked cases, Student Health Services has continued to see individual cases which is not unusual.

An infected person can spread the virus by coughing, sneezing, kissing, or talking; sharing items, such as cups or eating utensils, with others; and touching objects or surfaces with unwashed hands that are then touched by others.

I just wanted to send you a note to tell you Thank You for taking such good care of me the past few days. I’m sure you don’t hear it enough, and I wanted to tell you how much I appreciate you. You are truly a great doctor! Hopefully I won’t have to see you again for a long time. - ISU Student
Provider was very helpful, knowledgeable and concerned with my issue. I would definitely recommend him to any of my friends and would visit him again. He was also very easy to talk to and took the time to answer any questions. - ISU Student
