COVID-19 Symptomatic Testing
Employees who are active on the MyUofMHealth.org patient portal should follow these instructions to assess eligibility for COVID-19 testing and to schedule an appointment.
Employees who are unable to access the patient portal should call OHS at (734) 764-8021 and select prompt 1 to speak to a nurse.
Asymptomatic employees should continue to utilize the Community Sampling and Tracking Program (CSTP) or seek testing within the community.
Reporting Positive Test Results
To report a positive COVID-19 test result (excluding tests performed by University Health Service (UHS), Occupational Health Service (OHS), the Community Sampling and Tracking Program (CSTP) or a follow-up home antigen test for return to work) complete this survey. You can expect to receive a follow-up email when your results are processed. A call to OHS is not necessary.
Follow-up COVID-19 Home Antigen Testing Process
For Michigan Medicine COVID-19 Positive Employees:
Michigan Medicine employees who are required to isolate following a positive Covid-19 test should follow this timeline to use a home antigen Covid-19 test to determine return to work eligibility.
- Day 0: symptom onset or date test performed
- Days 1-4: isolation period
- Day 5 or later: perform a home antigen test
- Day 6-10: return to work with a negative home antigen test
- Day 11: return to work if unable to perform a home antigen test or if fever-free with improved symptoms
Employees feeling well enough should return to work the day after receiving a negative follow-up home antigen test if the employee is fever-free without the use of fever reducing medications in the past 24 hours with improved symptoms. There is no need to test after day 10, employees may return on day 11 if fever-free without the use of fever-reducing medications in the past 24 hours with improved symptoms. If an employee is unable to return to work by day 11 due to persisting symptoms, contact Occupational Health Services at (734) 764-8021, prompt 1.
This survey link should not be used to submit the initial positive test result for this isolation period. Further instructions and return to work status will be provided at the end of the survey. Employees should download a copy of the survey responses and share the return-to-work instructions with their supervisor. OHS will not provide additional documentation or follow-up at completion of the home antigen survey.
COVID-19 exposures do not need to be reported to OHS. More information regarding exposures is available in this FAQ.
