Testing Overview

 

COVID Testing

Starting May 10th, we will pivot to a decentralized, voluntary testing program. The University has purchased Abbot BinaxNOW testing kits that are available free of charge to students, staff, and faculty through the School of Nursing, Office of Residence Life, and Campus Safety. Community members are encouraged to use these testing kits as needed, and report positive cases at https://www.up.edu/pilotsprevent/

Carbon Health and the supporting application will no longer be available. The new testing strategy meets our needs as the number of students, staff, and faculty on campus is variable, vaccinations are increasing, and the new approach allows for greater access.  

COVID-19 Medical Care

Students can be seen on campus for symptoms of COVID-19. These appointments may be conducted virtually or in person. All appointments at the HCC are free. If a student tests positive for COVID-19 at the HCC, the HCC providers will continue to provide healthcare follow up to the student including phone calls and follow up appointments as needed. This care is free of charge. In addition, any student who tests positive for COVID-19 or is advised to quarantine due to an exposure will receive support from the UP COVID Case Management Team.
