Screen, Test & Protect

UF Health Screen, Test & Protect has completed its phase-out of its routine testing program. However, UF will continue to offer COVID-19 tests through ONE.UF . Additionally, to ensure the continued health of our campus community and that our positivity rates remain low, UF Health Screen, Test & Protect, through its collaboration with the Florida Department of Health in Alachua County, will continue to isolate those who have tested positive for the virus and quarantine unvaccinated individuals who are identified as contacts of someone who has tested positive. Vaccinated people who are exposed to someone who has tested positive for the virus and are asymptomatic can continue their campus-related presence as normal.

By the start of Summer B, we expect to offer vaccination pop-up sites in high-traffic locations throughout campus. This will augment the success of spring vaccination efforts by UF Health Screen, Test & Protect, and the Florida Department of Health in Alachua County, which helped achieve county vaccination rates of 55%, among the highest in the state.

These plans, made in the context of the evolving pandemic and loosening federal guidelines, signify the university’s continued focus on vaccinations as the path back to normalcy as well as our commitment to fully reviving the vibrant on-campus environment that helps define UF.
