Testing is a critical tool in the fight against this pandemic. To find a free COVID-19 testing site near you, use these online tools:
Student Health Services
Current students can visit the Health Services virtual clinic for services. The virtual clinic uses online video that is HIPAA-compliant for privacy and security, so students can talk with a health care provider about issues including women’s health, birth control, community resources and referrals. To schedule an appointment, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- You can also visit Wellness Central, an online resource for students.
- Note: If you have coronavirus symptoms – which may include a combination of fever, cough, difficulty breathing, headache, chills and loss of taste or smell – stay home and call your primary doctor, health care provider's nurse hotline, or Valley Medical Center at 408.885.5000.
