COVID-19

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is a rapidly evolving and emerging situation. The University of Texas at Arlington will provide updated guidance and information, including actions the University is taking and the latest health, safety and travel recommendations based on information from UT System, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and U.S. Department of State. Updated information is available on UTA's official coronavirus information page.

COVID-19 TESTING

Health center medical providers will determine whether testing is needed and coordinate testing. Students who are identified as being in need of testing will not pay out-of-pocket costs, regardless of whether they have insurance. For COVID-19 testing sites available after-hours and on weekends, please visit the Texas COVID-19 Test Collection Site Locator. In the event of an emergency, call 911 and inform the dispatcher of COVID-19 concerns.

IF YOU TEST POSITIVE FOR COVID-19  

Individuals diagnosed with COVID-19 at an off-campus clinic or testing site are required to report to the University by filling out the Personal Diagnosis Form and are expected to self-isolate at an off-campus location until cleared by a medical professional. A member from the Health Services Contact Tracing Team will follow up to collect information. Students diagnosed in the health center do not need to complete a personal diagnosis form as Health Services will follow up with instructions and conduct contract tracing.
