Free COVID-19 virtual screenings for USG employees

All University System of Georgia employees are now eligible for free COVID-19 virtual screenings through Augusta University Health System’s AU Health Express Care app.

Screenings are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, at no cost and no appointment required. You can log into the app from home. Screenings are done by a provider who is a physician, nurse practitioner or physician’s assistant and trained to screen for COVID-19. Please note: A positive screening does not mean you have COVID-19.

Patients who screen positive will be told about appropriate next steps, which could include following up with your healthcare provider and/or visiting a testing site. Patients who screen negative are provided their visit summary and will be given guidance on next steps for treatment of their symptoms.

Augusta University cannot guarantee perfect screening results but are confident their medical professionals are using the most up-to-date and latest COVID-19 screening practices.

The app is available for download on iPhone and Android. Links to the virtual screening app are available at

For those without access to technology, please call AU Health’s COVID-19 hotline at 706-721-1852. A desktop version or application for download can also be found at
