COVID-19 Info Resources for Staff


According to the CDC, Utah County is at a low level of COVID transmission. Community levels are determined by tracking hospitalizations, wastewater, and reported testing results. They are provided as a guide for your decisions on prevention steps.

Continued recommendations include:

Test kits are available on campus in the following locations: Student Health Services (SHS), Human Resources (HR), and Campus Connection. We resupply frequently.

We no longer track COVID-19 cases on campus or provide vaccination, but vaccines are available through your healthcare provider, a variety of pharmacies, and the Utah County Health Department.

The most helpful action we can take is to avoid others if we are ill. If you are not feeling well, please get tested and avoid contact with others.
