Your health and care during the COVID-19 outbreak

UHS is here for you – but we’re adapting our hours and services. Your health and well-being are still our top priority.

Do not come directly to UHS if you have fever, cough, shortness of breath and/or trouble breathing – or if you think you’ve had contact with someone who has COVID-19.

Call the Phone Information Nurse at 859-323-4636 before your visit to ensure proper protective measures are taken to prevent further risk of spread to others.
