Occupational Health offers COVID-19 testing for symptomatic employees, residents and fellows.

During influenza season, symptomatic individuals will also be tested for influenza.

Employees required to receive COVID-19 testing prior to being onsite for work-related duties will not be financially responsible when those tests are ordered by the Occupational Health Call Center and received at the WashU Occupational Health Clinic or at a partner BJC collection site. If you receive a bill from a BJC collection site or BJH Labs, forward that statement to occupationalhealth@wustl.edu and that charge will be reprocessed.
