UIW COVID-19 Community Updates and Operations Information

Illness Reporting Form

Remember to complete the Cardinal Daily Health Check when visiting campus

When returning from holidays or break periods UIW is following a comprehensive testing strategy. Employees and students should refer to their respective location tab (located below) for the most current unique testing guidance. These tabs will be updated, as needed, to provide the most current information.

UIW has two locations available for free COVID-19 testing. Employees and students can register for testing through the UIW Curative kiosk located in the Riverside parking lot on the Broadway campus or on the School of Osteopathic Medicine (SOM) campus by clicking on the links below. You must use your UIW email when registering for testing.

The kiosks are located in the Riverside Parking Lot, located directly across from Health Services and the Agnese/Sosa parking garage on the Broadway Campus and Lot 2B, behind Building 2 at the UIW School of Osteopathic Medicine. The Broadway Campus testing is available for employees and students only. The location at the SOM is open to the University community and is also open to the public. The test is a self-performed saliva test, authorized by the FDA for emergency use, to provide surveillance testing for general asymptomatic populations, including college-aged students. Results from these COVID-19 tests are estimated to be available within 36 to 48 hours.

Testing Guidance For Each UIW Location

You do not need to take a test if you have received a lab confirmed positive COVID-19 test within the past 90 days. There is now data to indicate that once you test positive, you will continue to test positive for a period of time.
