Keeping up-to-date on University policies and protocols, asking questions, completing daily wellness checks and letting us know if you have contracted COVID-19 – collectively, will help keep our campus as safe and healthy.

Student Emergency Fund

The Student Emergency Fund provides financial support up to $500 one-time per semester to currently enrolled BGSU students who are in good academic standing (minimum 2.0 GPA) and experience accidents, illnesses, financial hardships, or other emergency situations that jeopardize their continuation as students.

The virus known as the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is a novel (new) coronavirus. The disease it causes is called coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). In March 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the COVID-19 outbreak a pandemic. While there are several other coronaviruses (including the common cold), there is much we do not know yet about COVID-19.

To better protect one another and ourselves, BGSU recommends all employees and students review the links below.

  • The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) provides a general background as well as prevention guidelines and actions to take if you are sick. 
  • The Ohio Department of Health also provides recommendations and requirements that have a more direct effect in Bowling Green Ohio. Useful information is available about the number of cases and hospitalizations in this area.
  • Wood County Health Department locally guides public health initiatives, provides guidance, coordination of contact tracing and directions when individuals are suspected or test positive for COVID-19.  
  • Falcon Health Center can provide advice and medical care, particularly if you do not have a local primary health provider. 

Hospitals in our area also provide resources and care related to COVID-19:
