All University System of Georgia (USG) employees are now eligible for free COVID-19 virtual screenings through Augusta University Health System’s AU Health Express Care app.
Screenings are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, at no cost and no appointment required. You log into the app from home. Screenings are done by a provider who is a physician, nurse practitioner or physician’s assistant and trained to screen for COVID-19. Please note: A positive screening does not mean you have COVID-19.
Patients who screen "positive" will be told about appropriate next steps, which could include visiting a testing site. Patients who screen "negative" are provided their visit summary and will be given guidance on next steps for the treatment of their symptoms.
AU cannot guarantee perfect screening results, however, they are confident their medical professionals are using the most up-to-date and latest COVID-19 screening practices.
The app is available for download on iPhone and Android. Links to the virtual screening app are available at augustahealth.org/COVID19.
For those without access to technology, please call AU Health’s COVID-19 hotline at 706-721-1852. A desktop version or application for download can also be found at augustahealth.org/COVID19.
