Along with wearing a mask, washing your hands, and practicing physical distancing, daily use of the 1-Check UNO mobile app or website can keep you and our campus community safe this semester.
If you are planning to travel, spend time with family or friends, or visit campus during Fall Break, please take a moment and use the 1-Check UNO mobile app to self-screen to see if you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. If your results show that you are at medium or high-risk for COVID-19, you will be connected with testing resources.
Remember: Testing options are available on campus and in the community should you need them.
Report Any Positive COVID-19 Tests
Should you have symptoms of COVID-19, test positive for COVID-19, or come into close contact with someone who has tested positive, we strongly encourage you to fill out and submit a BRT form. Doing so allows the Office of Health Security to begin their contact tracing process, which promotes your wellness and the wellness of our campus community.
Preparing for Flu Season
While we remain focused on the COVID-19 pandemic, it is also crucial that you make time to get your flu shot before heading into the winter months.
The Nebraska Medicine UNO Health Center is once again providing flu shots to the UNO campus community. Flu shots are still available by appointment at the UNO Health Center for students, faculty and staff.
Flu shots are free for enrolled students. Faculty and staff are also able to utilize the UNO Health Center, or one of the University of Nebraska's CVS Caremark partner sites, with many employees qualifying for a $0 co-pay.
Connect, Take Care, Get Help
One of the most courageous things you can do when you are feeling stressed or anxious is to reach out for help. Please make use of the resources available on our UNO’s Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) website. From there, you will be presented with helpful psychological tips and resources for scheduling appointments with our trained counselors.
