Think you may need to get tested?

If you have symptoms of COVID-19—cough, fever, shortness of breath—you can be tested at U of U Health drive-up testing sites. First, call ahead to ensure testing is necessary at 801-587-0712.

We’re focusing on patients with significant symptoms—if you are asymptomatic or have only mild cold-like symptoms, you may be advised to stay home.

Drive-up evaluations will take place seven days a week. Hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the following locations:

  • Sugar House: 1280 E. Stringham Ave, Salt Lake City, 84106
  • Farmington: 165 N. University Ave., Farmington, 84025
  • South Jordan: 5126 W. Daybreak Pkwy., South Jordan, 84009
  • Redwood: 1525 2100 South, Salt Lake City, 84119

Find more information on how drive-up testing works here.

If you have insurance, it will be billed for the cost.

Subject: Re-Opening Labs for Limited Research under Orange conditions

Dear College of Engineering Researchers,

The University of Utah anticipates moving from Red (High Risk) to Orange (Moderate Risk) status on Monday, May 11. In association with that change, limited research activities, i.e., those that can be safely conducted with physical distancing, sanitization and limited personnel density, will be permitted. The Vice President for Research has posted guidelines of Allowable Research under Orange Hazard Levels. Please review those to see if your research/laboratory qualifies.

The procedure to receive authorization to open a laboratory for limited research activities is a five-step process. Managers of labs currently open under Red conditions (performing essential activities) should also follow this process to request authorization to continue operations.

STEP 1:  Inform your department chair of your interest in ramping up laboratory research activities and receive the chair’s approval.

STEP 2:  Read the VPR’s Guidelines for Limited Research Activities (Orange), in particular the sections on Allowable Research Activities, COVID-19 Laboratory Protocols, and COVID-19 Guidelines for Student Involvement in Research (bottom of table).

STEP 3:  Complete the EHS Limited Laboratory Research Operations Health and Safety Checklist.

STEP 4:  Complete the College of Engineering Lab Opening Request Form. The form asks for a list of all employees who will work in the laboratory. Each employee will need to complete an Employee Certification Form (described below).

After the Lab Opening Request form has been reviewed, you will receive an email either granting authorization to ramp up limited research activities or requesting additional information. Review will take less than 24 hours.

STEP 5:  Ask your lab employees to complete the Employee Certification Form. Each person expecting to work in COE laboratories is required to complete the form to confirm that they have read and agree to comply with university policies and guidelines. Upon submission of that form, an email will be sent to the employee’s supervisor, who should review and make a decision whether to allow the employee to start working in the lab. No other formal review will be performed. Please do not permit employees to begin work until the form has been submitted and they have all necessary PPE and suitable face covering. Lab Managers (those who completed the Lab Opening Request Form) do not need to complete the Employee Certification Form. The URL for the form (to send to employees) is below.

If you have any questions about this process, please do not hesitate to ask.

Thank you for supporting the health and safety of the university. Happy and safe research to you all.

Best Regards,

Kevin Whitty
