UF HEalth Screen, TEST & Protect REOPENING THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA AND UF HEALTH SYSTEM

The Screen, Test & Protect initiative uses public health guidance and best practices aimed at fostering a culture of care for our community while taking steps to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 as the University of Florida gradually returns faculty, staff and students to the campus environment.

How our initiative works

Trace

We trace, or locate, all people in contact with the individuals who test positive, and provide guidance to them to be tested and/or to self-quarantine and monitor for symptoms.

Trace

Protect

If a test comes back positive, we ask the individual to isolate through self-quarantining.

Protect

Prevent

We prevent the spread of the disease by continuing best practices such as frequent handwashing, physical distancing and wearing masks.

STATISTICS OF COVID-19 TESTING & CASES AT UF

4,410 Total number of employees tested at UF since May 6, 2020

4 Total positive results since May 6, 2020

Employee and patient confidentiality laws prohibit us from disclosing the identities of individuals. It’s important to note that any individual who has tested positive will be isolated, and anyone believed to be at risk for exposure will be contacted and asked to self-quarantine.  In cases where an employee fails to disclose to the university that they tested positive, the university may have no way of knowing and communicating that information. Therefore, this information includes only positive cases that the university has been made aware of. This information does not include employees of UF Health Shands, UF Health Jacksonville or UF Health Central Florida.
