COVID-19 Testing information

Depending upon whether you are experiencing symptoms or have cause for concern, there are two ways to determine your testing options –

I have symptoms…

Symptoms such as fever, shortness of breath and cough may be important indicators according to the CDC.


Students experiencing any COVID-19 or flu-like symptoms, should make an appointment for evaluation before testing (usually telehealth).

The clinical provider can then can place an order for a COVID-19 test and provide further instructions. 


Faculty and Staff who are experiencing symptoms are encouraged to seek their regular primary care provider.

For Health Care Workers (including clinical students), please call UF Occupational Medicine @ SHCC for further direction at 352-392-1161.

I do not have symptoms…

Testing for those who have no symptoms is available for faculty, staff and students on an ‘appointment only’ basis.

If you are asymptomatic (experiencing no symptoms at all) yet you are concerned about your status, then you may request to schedule a COVID-19 test by visiting ONE.UF. Please note: You will need to have an active myChart account created in order to schedule your appointment and receive your results. If you need help setting one up, instructions are posted here.


Want other testing options?

If you are not experiencing symptoms but still want to test, there are several locations in the community. FDA Approved COVID-19 Tests are also available for purchase ($20) in UF SHCC pharmacy.
