Although remote workers are required to use the daily symptom check application, they should always choose “Not Required to Work On-site” regardless of symptoms. In addition, remote workers are not required to report COVID-19 cases to UCI.
Please note that our testing capacity is currently limited, so we can only extend COVID-19 testing to students and identified on-site workers.
If you are a remote worker and are experiencing symptoms or would like to be tested, you have several options. The first is to contact your Primary Care Provider. Information on your health plan’s response to the Coronavirus outbreak can be located at this UCNet website.
The second option is to review the OCHealth website. This website is Orange County’s community COVID-19 testing website and is an excellent resource which provides links for at-home and local testing locations. It also features a very effective decision guide to help connect you to the appropriate resources.
