Providing quality healthcare to students, spouses, and their dependents.
New from Student Heath
Due to increased precautions surrounding COVID-19 (coronavirus), U of U Student Health is upholding it's committment to keeping you and others safe by introducing some new safeguards for patients.
We are only seeing patients by APPOINTMENT. No walk-ins at this time.
Students in need of vaccines, blood tests, etc. MUST CALL for an appointment.
We respectfully ask that before traveling to the clinic for symptoms such as high fever, cough, or shortness of breath, please contact us first at 801-581-6431. We can then discuss your symptoms with you and address any concerns over the phone to determine if a visit, or further testing, is necessary.
You may also message your provider via the patient portal. Simply log on to your account, select "Messages", then your provider. For more general questions, select the "Ask a Nurse" provider. Messages will be answered in the order they are received during normal business hours.
COVID19 Testing (nasal swab)
Only the PCR test can be used to detect an active infection. In order to protect our patients and staff, the Student Health Center is not performing any PCR testing, instead relying on mobile testing sites. To access mobile testing sites, you need to begin with a virtual visit through University Healthcare or Intermountain Connect Care (please see links on this page on the right).
COVID19 Serology (blood test)
This test measures whether you have antibody to COVID19. You develop antibodies after you have been exposed to a virus or other pathogen. With COVID19, the data is unknown whether a positive test means you have permanent immunity from COVID19 or if it is only temporary. Also unknown is whether you can still spread the virus with a positive antibody test. Thus even with a positive test, you will still need to adhere to social distancing and masking guidelines. The test is only useful in certain situations (e.g., to help a provider who is caring for someone who remains ill despite a negative COVID19 PCR test). An appointment will be needed to discuss with a provider whether serology testing is warranted; testing can only be done after symptoms have resolved for at least 14 days.
