Call 903-596-3918 or 903-596-3548 to make an appointment. Please identify yourself as a TJC student to minimize any confusion.

If you are advised to self-quarantine due to a positive exposure, you will also need to follow the CDC guidelines of being 10 days asymptomatic since last date of exposure. Please seek care at the 5th Street location if you become symptomatic after exposure (Fever, Cough, Shortness of Breath).
