COVID-19 Testing and Screening Information

Updated 1/20/22

PLEASE NOTE:  If you have tested positive for COVID in the last 90 days, do not get tested.

Returning to Work if You Test Positive

This is the short, online Return to Work COVID Clearance Form you will be required to complete, where you will be asked to attest that you no longer have a fever and that you’ve completed a five-day isolation period. Based on your responses, you will be given additional guidance or cleared to return to work. Your supervisor will automatically be notified of your return to work date as well. If you reported your positive results to the Health Information Line (HIL), you will receive an email containing the Clearance Form link.

Test Scheduler Tool

We encourage you to use the COVID-19 Scheduler Tool, which enables employees to:

  • View and reserve a convenient appointment time and select the most convenient of three locations.
  • Identify appointment times when the testing schedule may be less busy.
  • Receive a reminder email indicating appointment time and location.
  • Simply choose a new date/time if there’s a need to reschedule.
