Through our partnership with IU Health, Ball State University is providing free virtual COVID-19 screenings to our faculty, staff, and students. This free virtual screening service remains in effect until July 8, 2022.
Students, faculty, and staff must first use the symptom checker at iuhealth.org/covid19 to check for COVID-19 symptoms. The symptom checker BOT check icon is in the lower left corner of the page. If you are symptomatic, the checker will give you a path or referral to the appropriate medical service.
Students, faculty, and staff who experience COVID-19 symptoms (without a separate diagnosed cause, e.g. asthma, allergies, etc.) may be referred to the coronavirus screening service through IU Health Virtual Visit app. If symptoms indicate COVID-19, IU Health will order a COVID-19 test and provide instructions to the appropriate specimen collection site. Virtual screening with a RN is available through the app 24/7.
Students who feel the need to be evaluated for symptoms after the virtual coronavirus screening may call the Student Health Center at 765-285-8431 to schedule an appointment. Employees who would like additional symptom evaluation beyond the virtual screening should contact their primary care provider. The Employee Quick Clinic may be an option for employees who have an urgent need and a primary care provider is not available.
Students who choose to use primary care provider for COVID-19 related medical care, must report a positive COVID-19 test to the University.
Beginning on July 9, 2022, students who are experiencing symptoms may call the Student Health Center at 765-285-8431 to schedule an appointment with a health care provider. Employees who are experiencing symptoms should contact their primary care provider or local healthcare provider for services.
