In April, the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s clinical partner, Nebraska Medicine, began COVID-19 testing for members of the Omaha metro community on the UNO Dodge Campus.
This drive-thru swab site, located in Lot N next to the Health & Kinesiology Building, will remain open through the remainder of September. During that time, Lot N will remain closed for campus parking access (view a campus map here).
The clinic was set up earlier this year 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.
The presence of the drive-thru swab site on campus does not increase risk of exposure to the university community. The following safety measures will remain in place as long as the collection site is open:
Lot N is 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
