If You've Tested Positive Outside of UHS
We are asking that if students, faculty, staff and other campus affiliates get a lab-confirmed positive COVID-19 test from an outside provider/lab to voluntarily call our University Health Services CONFIDENTIAL line at (510) 643-8227 to inform our clinical teams.
We want to offer our support and services to help those through their care and recovery. It will also help us be aware of the number of positive cases so we can plan our services and resources to support the campus community.
Your private information will not be shared beyond that required for Public Health. Please have the following information ready when you call:
- Are you a student, faculty, staff member or campus affiliate
- Spell your first and last name
- Date of Birth if you are a student, or Employee ID for faculty / staff
- City you tested positive in
- Date of confirmed positive test
- Contact number and email address
