Students: The virtual way to skip the waiting room
Students returning to SUNY Broome for the fall semester are reminded that a virtual medical visit is the best way to avoid being out and about among others more than you have to.
The virtual health option offered by UHS will limit your exposure to COVID-19.
During the pandemic, UHS clinicians are taking extra measures to ensure a clean environment and prevent exposure to the virus. We are open, sanitized and safe.
In addition, our Virtual Walk-In service is open online daily from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm as a convenient first step in seeking care.
If an in-person visit to one of our physical Walk-In locations is recommended, we ask that you reserve a time using the Online Reservation tool. Please come alone if at all possible. If you do require assistance, please limit this to one additional person only. Do not bring a guest who is not feeling well, and someone over age 65 shouldn’t come with you if at all possible.
Masks are required to be worn by everyone in our facilities; this includes our staff and patients. Practice social distancing, staying at least six feet away from others and maintaining a safe distance away from the receptionist’s window.
Use hand sanitizer from one of our convenient dispensers and wash your hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and water when you can.
We understand that these rules aren’t easy or welcome, but we must comply with federal, state and county directives and we want to ensure the highest possible level of safety for everyone.
- If you develop a fever with symptoms of respiratory illness, such as a cough or shortness of breath, within 14 days after recent travel, or within 14 days of contact with someone who is showing symptoms, contact your primary care provider immediately. Describe your scenario or use the COVID-19 screening tool on the UHS Virtual Walk-In page.
- If you have a medical emergency, call 911 at once. Never delay in-person care if you are struggling to breathe.
