Virtual Care Clinic for Employees and Your Families

The COVID-19 Virtual Care Clinic provides quick access to one of our expert clinicians for a COVID-19 screening. A virtual visit is likely scheduled for the same day.

Your family members:

  • Must be ages 12 and up
  • Do not have to be current patients of UT Southwestern
  • Will provide their insurance to be billed, and our UT Southwestern staff will work with your insurance company if prequalification is needed.

What to Expect

The virtual visit will consist of a screening to discuss:

  • Symptoms
  • Potential exposure
  • Previous medical history

The visit will not always include a COVID-19 test. If there is a need for formal testing, patients will be referred to the Drive-up Testing Site at the Paul M. Bass Administrative and Clinical Center, Lot No. 18. It is open seven days a week, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Request a Virtual Visit

If you have any questions or a family member wants to request a virtual visit, please call 214-645-9296. 

We are available Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

Exposure to COVID-19

If you have been exposed to COVID-19 while on the job, please fill out the screening form.

If you have had community exposure, contact your primary care provider. Once cleared to return to work, you must send your primary care provider’s documented clearance notification to Occupational Health at

Call Before Coming to Occupational Health 

If you are symptomatic or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, it is imperative that you exercise good judgment and call Occupational Health for next steps.
