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 unless they have been onsite during the infectious period. If this is the case, then they should report their case at this website.

If you are a remote worker and are experiencing symptoms or would like to be tested, you have several options:

  • UCI is now offering no-charge “walk-in” asymptomatic testing for all employees regardless of vaccination status. Scroll to the bottom of the provided link to learn more information. This may be your best option if you are not experiencing any symptoms.
  • Another option 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.
  • Finally, you may 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.
