I feel I may have been exposed to the virus. What action should I take?
Anyone who is worried about potential exposure should first call health care professionals so they can assess your symptoms and risk factors and help you make a plan. Do not walk in to QuickCare, Student Health, any UI Health Care clinic, the State Hygienic Lab, or any emergency room. Points of contact are listed below.
Call or email the Student Health Nurseline (319-335-9704, firstname.lastname@example.org) or your local health care provider and inform them of your travel history and symptoms. After hours and on weekends, call the University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics (319-384-9010 or the 24-hour helpline, 319-384-8819) or your local health care provider. You may also wish to schedule a video visit through MyChart.

“As the University of Iowa community experiences heightened anxiety around COVID-19, it is important to avoid assumptions about who may or may not be carrying the virus based on their identity. Discrimination on the basis of ethnicity or national origin is unacceptable and counter to our core values. If you experience or witness bias related to the virus, contact the Campus Inclusion Team or the Office of Equal Opportunity and Diversity.”
