U of G Campus COVID-19 Assessment & Testing Clinic

U of G Campus COVID-19 Assessment and Testing Clinic

Health Services is now offering a U of G Campus COVID-19 Assessment and Testing Clinic, open to students, faculty and staff working on U of G campus.

 

WHAT TO EXPECT:

After calling 519-824-4120 (ext. 52131), you will be connected with a registered nurse, who will complete a screening assessment. The screening assessment is a series of questions to determine whether or not a person should get tested. The dedicated COVID-19 staff at Health Services will be following the most up-to-date testing guidance from the Ministry of Health and Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health (WDGPH).

If you have symptoms, then you will be booked in for an assessment and/or testing. If you aren’t experiencing symptoms, yet it is determined there might be a risk of exposure to COVID-19, the nurse will book you in for asymptomatic COVID-19 testing. The phone appointment also provides an opportunity for the registered nurse to offer education, health information and support. Health Services will provide follow-up care as required to U of G students.
