Vendors, parents and other visitors to our campus do not need to be tested when entering the campus. Wearing masks is strongly encouraged while in public buildings if unvaccinated. All UF Health patients must wear masks when entering the hospital or outpatient practices, dentistry practices or veterinary hospitals, and will have to follow current visitation guidelines.
General Campus Visitors
- If you are making a delivery, visiting an office or visiting a student on the UF campus and are not fully vaccinated, CDC guidance recommends you continue to wear masks.
- If you are visiting the UF Health hospitals or outpatient practices, dentistry practices or veterinary hospitals, additional visitation guidelines apply.
UF Health Patients
UF Health patients will not be tested, but they will be screened for symptoms and will have to follow current visitation guidelines, including screening and wearing a mask.
Patients with appointments at UF Health hospitals and practices, or those who visit the emergency room, are not necessarily tested, but are screened for symptoms and must follow current visitation guidelines, including wearing masks. Patients admitted or transferred to the hospital who are unvaccinated are required to be tested at UF Health as part of the admission process.
At UF Health, we have taken many steps to safeguard the health of our patients, visitors and caregivers throughout our hospitals and emergency rooms in Gainesville.
UF Health Vendors and Contractors
All vendors and contractors are required to complete a health attestation via the RepTrax system. You are required to attest to the fact you are not sick, have not come in contact with a COVID-19 positive person, and have not traveled to CDC-advised areas or a cruise.
