Feeling unwell? Tested positive for COVID-19? Know who to call and how to report

Have a sore throat? A fever? Maybe you woke up with congestion? If you’re a UI Health Care employee experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, there’s now an additional way to schedule a COVID-19 test.

Feeling unwell? Use the MyChart self-checker or call the University Employee Health Clinic at 319-356-3631, option 3.

Employees can now use the MyChart self-checker to schedule a COVID-19 test. This is similar to how UI Health Care patients schedule a test, but employees will follow a separate set of questions to find testing options and locations.

You’ll need to create a MyChart account—if you don’t already have one—to use this tool. Read more about signing up for a free MyChart account.

Have you tested positive for COVID-19 outside of the UEHC? You can now fill out an online contact tracing survey to receive your isolation dates instead of calling the clinic.

Once in MyChart, you’ll be prompted to select your reason for using the self-checker.

After selecting “Experiencing symptoms,” you’ll see the available testing locations. Select the testing site most appropriate for your work location and symptoms.

Do I have to schedule a COVID-19 test through MyChart?

No, employees can still call the University Employee Health Clinic (UEHC) at 319-356-3631, option 3. The MyChart self-checker provides another way for employees to schedule a test and helps alleviate the call volume to the UEHC.

What else can the MyChart symptom checker be used for?

Employees can also use the MyChart self-checker if they:

  • Have concerns or questions about the COVID-19 vaccine
  • Tested positive for COVID-19
  • Have been exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19
  • Need general advice related to COVID-19

When using the MyChart self-checker, employees should select the relevant option (see image above) to receive further guidance.
