University Health Services Remote Instructions

University Health Services will be moving to a phone triaging system and staff will be working remotely to meet the needs of students while trying to maintain social distancing and limiting face to face contact recommended by the CDC and DOH. We will be available remotely to advise and treat mild illness and we will be able to refer you to a local urgent care or the emergency room for any acute medical problems where chest x-rays or testing can be done if needed.

According to the CDC, If you are sick with COVID-19 or suspect you are infected with the virus that causes COVID-19, you should take steps to help prevent the disease from spreading to people in your home and community. If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and develop a fever and symptoms, such as cough or difficulty breathing, call your healthcare provider for medical advice. Most healthy people can treat mild illness at home. We are available to answer your questions or concerns.

Remote hours: 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.

RH 718-817-4160; LC 212-636-7160

Students are encouraged to make appointments in advance. Our electronic medical records (EMR) system is able to create Zoom appointments to meet the needs of students while trying to maintain social distancing and limiting face-to-face contact recommended by the CDC and DOH.
