Due to the unprecedented circumstances caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, students are being allowed to remain on Embry-Riddle’s Prescott, Arizona, campus for a portion or all of the holiday break, Nov. 26 to Jan. 3, 2021. Dining and housing service will be made available to students who remain on campus during the break, and Wellness Center staff will be available via telephone for Covid-related concerns.


Dining locations will be limited during the break, but they will be open (refer to the schedule, below).  Meal plans for fall semester are good through Dec. 10. Students can choose a meal plan customized for the break periods, or just pay at the door. To ensure that every student is served, we need your help.

Students who are staying at Embry-Riddle over the holidays and would like to opt in to a meal plan, log onto ERNIE and then click here.

Health and Wellness

Throughout the break periods, if you need to see a physician, nurse-practitioner or registered nurse and have United Health Care Student Resources, you can access telemedicine online. As an insured student with United Health Care Student Resources, there is no fee for this service. If you are a student with private health insurance, contact your health insurance carrier for directions on how to access telemedicine. 

If you have Covid-19 or have been exposed to Covid-19, call the Wellness Center at (928) 777-6653 anytime during the Thanksgiving or winter breaks. On-call staff will be available 24/7 from Nov. 25-29 and Dec. 22 to Jan. 3. If the concern is not urgent, we would appreciate calls on these days during business hours, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Monitor your personal health closely and, if you feel ill or begin to show symptoms associated with Covid-19 — i.e. fever, cough, shortness of breath, loss of taste or smell, etc. — call the Wellness Center:
