Coronavirus Disease 19 (COVID-19) Update
In accordance with guidance from The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), the University has implemented several measures to support the health and well-being of our community. At this time, UHS is offering telehealth services. Any student with a medical concern, should call us at 412-268-2157, option 2, to discuss their needs. Please do not walk to the health center.
As part of students' Tartan Responsibility and to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus on campus, each member of our community must complete a quick Daily Self-Assessment survey before beginning their day. Each one of us has a shared obligation to support the health and well-being of our entire campus and surrounding community. The Daily Self-Assessment survey includes three yes or no questions, followed by guidance about engaging in on-campus activity.
Any student with fever and cough or any respiratory symptoms should stay home and call UHS at 412-268-2157 for consultation. Faculty and staff with symptoms should contact their primary care provider for guidance.
We continue to monitor the situation and are working with the Allegheny County Health Department to employ recommended protocols regarding prevention and care for any student who reports symptoms. The CDC is sharing Coronavirus updates as information becomes available. Due to the evolving nature of the pandemic, we urge you to read all updates sent by the university, and regularly check the COVID-19 Updates website.
We want to be sure that we're helping you in the best way possible. Tell us about your recent visit to UHS.
