As part of our commitment to the health of our campus community, UCR Health, the clinical faculty practice of the UC Riverside School of Medicine, has established a new resource for UCR faculty and staff. 

If you have traveled internationally or been in contact with someone in the past 30 days who has COVID-19, plus are experiencing a fever with cough or trouble breathing contact the 24/7 Hotline at 844-827-6827. 

If you are experiencing cold and flu symptoms, but have not traveled internationally or been in contact with someone with COVID-19, contact your primary care physician or healthcare insurance for more information.

This resource is available only to UCR employees, and not the general public. UCR students should continue to contact Student Health Services at 951-827-3031 for assistance.

As a reminder, there are several steps each of us can take to slow or reduce the spread of germs: (1) wash your hands with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol, (2) cover your mouth with your elbow when you cough or sneeze, (3) clean and disinfect surfaces often, and (4) stay home if you are sick.

For more information about social distancing and hygiene practices for the workplace and home, please visit the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) website or UCR’s COVID-19 website.
