The collection site is expected to begin operation on Monday, April 6. It will be located in Lot M, immediately west of the Barbara Weitz Community Engagement Center, and Lot N, the garage area of the Health & Kinesiology building (view a campus map here). The site will operate daily from 8 a.m. to noon.
The purpose of the clinic is to divert testing away from the vulnerable patients and staff at Nebraska Medical Center, Bellevue Medical Center, and other Nebraska Medicine health centers throughout the community. It is a safe and convenient way to collect samples for testing away from those patient care areas.
Lots M and N are closed to students, faculty and staff
Patients are instructed to arrive through a single entrance: 67th Street off of Dodge Street. Wayfinding signage will be placed along the route between the west entrance and the clinic to ensure patients do not get lost on campus
Before patients arrive on campus, they are instructed to proceed directly to the clinic and remain in their vehicles with the windows rolled up at all times
UNO Public Safety officers will be stationed around campus to help direct patients and to ensure they remain in their vehicles
The H&K garage will be disinfected thoroughly each day
Expect to see increased traffic on campus beginning Friday, April 3, as Nebraska Medicine and UNO staff members begin setting up and training for the collection site.
