COVID-19 By the Numbers
Modified on 9/20/2023 at 11:08am

UI Health Care is posting snapshots of our current COVID-19 testing, appointment, and inpatient counts.

COVID-19 testing, appointment, and inpatient counts are updated weekly. Data regarding employees testing positive for COVID-19 is no longer reported. Employee vaccination numbers will be updated weekly.

Are you an employee feeling unwell? Use the MyChart self-checker. Employees are also no longer required to notify the University Employee Health Clinic of a positive COVID-19 test. Following a positive test result, employees should notify their supervisor as they would with any other illness. 

Starting Tuesday, Jan. 3, 2023, the Patient-Related Care numbers reflect 2023 calendar-year data. 2022 year-end numbers can be found here. Employee-Related Data will be cumulative for 2020–2023.
