Coronavirus (COVID-19) Central
The Arthur Ashe Student Health & Wellness Center (The Ashe Center) remains engaged with local, state and
national health agencies in closely monitoring COVID-19.
For more information, including the status of COVID-19 on the UCLA campus, read
the latest update available at UCLA Newsroom. Additionally, UCLA has compiled a multilingual resource hub for COVID information
in 40 languages.
What actions do students need to take?
Students who develop COVID-19 symptoms or had close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19 are advised to:
Call The Ashe Center COVID-19 Hotline at (310) 206-6217 or directly schedule a Zoom COVID-19 Screening visit with a provider through our Patient Portal to determine the need
for diagnostic testing and treatment.
If you have symptoms, please self-isolate until someone you have spoken to someone from The Ashe Center.
If you were exposed (within 6 feet, for greater than 15 minutes) to someone who tested positive to COVID-19, please quarantine until after you have spoken with someone from The Ashe Center.
If you test positive for COVID-19, inform anyone you were in close contact with to call the Ashe COVID-19 hotline for testing and treatment instructions.
- If you live in a shared space, The Ashe Center will work with Housing to provide a space for you to safely isolate.
What actions is The Ashe Center taking?
In order to prevent exposure from occurring at The Ashe Center, all patients are being screened for COVID-19 upon check in. Any patient with symptoms which could be caused by
COVID-19 will be seen in a separate area of the clinic by staff members wearing specialized personal protective equipment (PPE).
In order to safely care for students, many of whom are not currently living on or near campus, The Ashe Center is
now offering telehealth visits. Upon scheduling an appointment, students will be given instructions on how to speak with a provider via Zoom. If the provider determines that you need to be seen in-person for your diagnosis or treatment, they will schedule an in-person visit for you at The Ashe Center.
What are the details of the University’s testing program?
COVID-19 community screening will be required for all students living in university housing or participating in on-site classes, as well as for faculty and staff working on campus at least one day per week. These tests will be self-collected nasal swabs and multiple campus testing sites are available.
Tests will be provided at no cost, and contact tracing protocols will be in place when anyone tests positive. The frequency of testing will vary for each group. Please view the Testing Schedule and
Frequently Asked Questions about community screening for additional information.
Where can students get tested for COVID-19 if they are symptomatic or have been identified as close contacts of a known case?
The Ashe Center offers COVID-19 PCR and antibody testing.
There will be no charge for diagnostic tests completed at The Ashe Center.
Antibody testing is not currently covered by UCSHIP. The cost is $47 that will be charged to the BruinBill account. This bill can be sent to the student’s private insurance company for reimbursement.
Patients who are symptomatic or want to request testing can schedule a Telehealth appointment or send a self-request message through the Patient Portal. Once your test is ordered by an Ashe Center provider, you will be directed to self-collect the test outside of our building.
Alternatively, students can seek testing through their county health department. Los Angeles County Public Health offers testing at different locations throughout the county, but pricing may vary.
The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health is now asking all residents to wear cloth masks whenever they go out in public. Please follow the guidelines provided by LADPH.
