COVID-19 Testing

UI Healthcare and Student Health have testing available for those who have COVID-19 symptoms, or are a close contact to a person who has tested positive for the illness. If you are seeking a test pre-travel, please see our page about COVID-19 Testing and Travel.

Students who need testing for international travel should click here for information.   

If you would like to talk to a Student Health provider about getting tested for COVID-19 due to exposure or symptoms, please call our schedulers at 319-335-8394 during business hours. We will get you set up for a video or phone visit with us to discuss your situation and order a test if needed. 

If you would like to be tested for COVID-19, log into your MyChart account and use the COVID-19 Symptom Checker to help determine next steps.  You may be eligible through UIHC to have a test ordered without needing to have a visit with a healthcare provider.  If you do not have MyChart, you can email student health or call our schedulers at 319-335-8394 during business hours and we will send you a link to sign up.  

Until you talk with us,  you should isolate yourself and stay home.  Call our Nurseline at 319-335-9704 with any questions.   

Keep in mind that UIHC will bill your insurance and you may be responsible for some charges related to the video visit, and/or testing.  The link on their website explains charges, so please review. 

If you have been notified of exposure by a public health official, if you have been told you are a contact of a person who has tested positive, OR if you received a positive test result, remember to fill out the UI Self Reporting form
