COVID-19

COVID-19 testing is being performed at designated UHS locations with an order from your provider. 

In-person visits are not encouraged if you are experiencing symptoms that could be COVID-19 (fever, shortness of breath, cough, fatigue, muscle aches, headache). If you are experiencing any of these, please contact your Primary Care provider for an evaluation of your symptoms or start a Virtual Walk-In visit here.

What to do if you are sick

You and your family’s health, safety and well-being are of utmost importance to us at UHS. If you are not feeling well, we strongly encourage you to call your provider's office or utilize the UHS Virtual Walk-In before you come in especially if you are experiencing fever, shortness of breath, cough, or any combination of those. DO NOT delay seeking in-person care if you are struggling to breathe. Infections like the flu and the novel coronavirus are especially concerning, but can be avoided by taking precautions.

  • If you are coming for an appointment with your provider, we ask that you come alone whenever possible. 
  • If you desire support or you require assistance during your visit, please limit this to one adult companion or support person. Your support person may be asked to wait in their car or in the waiting room during your time with the provider in order to maintain social distancing and limit the potential for exposure
  • If you are bringing a child in for a pediatric appointment, please do not bring the youngster's siblings.

We understand that this is not an easy or welcome transition. We want to ensure the highest possible level of safety and care for everyone's well-being and to be compliant with federal, state and county directives during the COVID-19 pandemic.

UHS Virtual Walk-In

UHS is encouraging patients with concerns about a respiratory issue to seek care through our Virtual Walk-In to be evaluated prior to coming for in-person care. DO NOT delay seeking in-person care if you are struggling to breathe. The Virtual Walk-In is open daily 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Start a visit now

Our local UHS providers can diagnose patients with colds, viral respiratory infections, influenza, or potential COVID-19. If our provider suspects you may have COVID-19, they will communicate with local public health officials and direct you how to receive further care and/or Coronavirus testing if needed. Please DO NOT delay getting a virtual evaluation.
