Employee COVID Screening Form

  1. Submit the form and receive email confirmation. If additional information is needed, Employee Health will contact you.
  2. If testing is indicated, staff from Methodist Physicians Clinic will call you after 10 a.m. to schedule testing. Forms submitted after 1 p.m. will be contacted the following morning.
  3. The following business day, Employee Health will contact you with your test result.
  4. Testing of employees will only occur Monday-Friday. It will not be available on weekends.
