In order to prevent the spread of the COVID-19, the CDC advised everyone to stay home, away from crowds, and promote physical distancing. But for some, home may be more dangerous than it is safe. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Every year, nearly 10 million people are impacted by sexual assault and physical abuse by an intimate partner. Staying at home may allow intimate partners to maintain their control.⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

UCI CARE is committed to supporting students and staff who are currently being quarantined at home and need to create a safety plan. You are not alone. We are here for you.

DSC services continue remotely.

Active presence on DSC social media.

Revamping ZotAbility Ally Training for a virtual format.


  1. Primary care service is modified to allow access either by telephone visit, televideo where feasible, or in person based on clinical evaluation.
  2. Patient access and care will still continue via a modified hybrid model combining some in-patient visits and telehealth.
  3. Non-essential visits (ex: physicals) and well woman exams are suspended, and will be re-evaluated at the end of 2-3 weeks. The only change to the existing extended hours schedule is that the Tuesday extended hours will be ended until further notice. SHC is coordinating with Gottschalk Medical Plaza to refer to their site for drive through testing, following their internal referral guidelines.
  4. Specialty Services: on-site have been suspended, however referrals to specialists will continue. Tele-health specialty visits will be evaluated over the weeks to come as some may lend themselves well to the T.H. platform.
  5. Ancillary Services: will continue to be offered in support of patient care. Staffing levels and on-site scope of work may be modified to meet or anticipate patient demand
  6. Mental Health services: is conducting an on-going review of chronic care demands, determining which cases require continued face to face management. Some cases may be managed by phone visit or televideo
  7. Dental service is modified to emergent and urgent services on-site, while postponing elective procedures, and rescheduling others to future dates. Recently released ADA (American Dental Association) guidelines may require more restrictive urgent care guidelines. In the event that this occurs, Student Health Dental will comply.

We evaluate service demand in all patient sectors by the daily tracking of patient visit

volume. Our staffing levels are anticipated to flex with patient demand.


The Center for Student Wellness & Health Promotion is taking the following steps to provide services while working remotely:

Individual Consultations

Staff are handling all requests for individual appointments and consultation meetings via phone, email or zoom.

Small group meetings

Staff are continuing to meet with student groups (peer educator groups, interns, student staff, etc.) via zoom and staying in communication via email. We are also meeting weekly as a staff, via Zoom, to touch base and update each other on what we are working on.

Classes and targeted workshops

Classes for specific students and workshops for specific groups will be delivered using Zoom, Facebook Live, or other formats that make the most sense and are available to our staff.

All large-scale programming is on hold until further notice.

We are also keeping our website and social media updated daily with new information and resources. This information is being added/posted to our platforms daily.
