What you do next matters, and we’re here to help. Just follow these 3 steps.
Because you’ve had a possible exposure to Coronavirus, UW and WA State Department of Health guidelines say you should be tested as quickly as possible. Testing is free. Here’s how to do it:
Husky Coronavirus Testing is available to all UW students, staff, and faculty.
Other testing options:
- Hall Health
- UW Medicine employee testing
- UW Medicine patient testing
- Public Health Seattle King County testing sites
- Pierce County testing sites
- Snohomish County testing sites
UW employees can also access testing through UW Environmental Health & Safety. Notify the UW EH&S Department at email@example.com or 206.616.3344 to discuss symptoms or exposure, and testing options.
You can protect yourself and others by staying home to limit your exposure to other people. UW and WA State Department of Health say that anyone who has had a possible exposure to Coronavirus should take this precaution. This is especially important because you can spread the Coronavirus even if you have no symptoms. You may be advised to stay home for up to 14 days from the time you received an exposure notification.
