Dr. Engy Said has agreed to be our departmental COVID contact. If you happen to test positive, it is imperative that you let her know so that she can work to determine if additional people need to be tested and/or removed from the schedule. We have links on the homepage at the top to guide you with official UCSD guidelines for what to do if you are a) exposed or b) test positive for COVID. This will be especially important if we end up getting an outbreak among our clinical colleagues.
Please note, the VA protocol for COVID exposure is different—currently requiring all who work at the VA to get formally tested with confirmed negative COVID testing before returning to work.
