Students, staff, faculty, and trainees are strongly encouraged to use Johns Hopkins resources when symptomatic or concerned about exposure to COVID-19.

Affiliates can call the Johns Hopkins COVID-19 Call Center (JHCCC) at 443-287-8500. Callers will be asked a series of questions regarding their symptoms and possible exposure to others who have COVID-19. An appointment for a COVID-19 test will be arranged for affiliates who meet the criteria set by Johns Hopkins Infection Control. Individuals who test positive will be contacted by a health care worker to provide guidance regarding self-isolation, monitoring of symptoms, and general health advice. 

All affiliates are required to stay at home while they are sick or experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, unless otherwise directed by the JHCCC.

How to schedule a test

Appointments must be made prior to arriving at the testing site, although last-minute appointments are often available.

Testing appointments can be made through MyChart (also available as a mobile app from the Apple App Store or Google Play). You must have an active MyChart account to participate in the testing and vaccination programs at JHU. If you are having issues activating your MyChart, call 888-676-3433 or email Testinginfo@jhu.edu.

To schedule a COVID-19 test in MyChart:

  • Log into your MyChart account
  • Under “Menu” click “Schedule an Appointment”
  • Under “Tell us why you are coming in” select “JH Employee/Student COVID Testing (Asymptomatic OR Symptomatic)”
  • Answer the questions and follow the prompts to schedule the appropriate test and to find a testing location and appointment time. If no appointment slot is available, call the JHCCC.

Note: Individuals who have had a confirmed COVID infection are excused from mandatory asymptomatic saliva-based PCR testing for a period of 90 days from the date of infection

How to share test results

You can share your vaccination or lab result information quickly, easily and securely, right from MyChart by:

  • Using the MyChart app or website to create a barcode that can be scanned by a participating organization.
  • Downloading a PDF document that includes your barcodes.
  • Exporting your information to another application, such as a health wallet app.

Asymptomatic Testing
