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:

  • If you are athigh risk for severe illness, talk to your healthcare provider about whether you need to wear a mask and take other precautions
  • Stayup to datewith COVID-19 vaccines
  • Get testedif you have symptoms
  • COVID-19 vaccination is strongly encouraged but no longer required to attend UVU. Vaccination and boosters protect against severe disease even with BA.5. Vaccinations are available through the Utah County Health Department and traditional providers.
  • If you are feeling unwell, please avoid coming to campus. We want to keep our campus community healthy.
  • Free COVID-19 at-home test kits are available at Student Health Services, Human Resources, and Campus Connection. These are distribution-only sites, and there will not be anyone available to answer COVID-related questions. You can find answers on the CDC website or by contacting your healthcare provider.

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.


We are in contact with the Utah County Health Department as a part of the monitoring process. There are few cases in Utah County, and no cases reported at UVU. Monkeypox is a rare disease that is caused by infection with the monkeypox virus, which can be transmitted person-to-person through:

  • Direct contact with the infectious rash, scabs, or body fluids
  • Respiratory secretions during prolonged, face-to-face contact, or during intimate physical contact, such as kissing, cuddling, or sex
  • Touching items (such as clothing or linens) that previously touched the infectious rash or body fluids

Please refer to the emergency management webpagefor more details about monkeypox and UVU’s response.

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.
