COVID-19 Daily Health Screen

COVID-19 Daily Health Screen

Daily Health Screen for Students, Faculty, and Staff


Do I need to complete the daily health screen?

Prior to arriving on any University property or participating in any University-related activity, members of the University community must conduct a personal health screening and self-monitor for COVID-19 related symptoms. This is a short online Qualtrics questionnaire available in MyCoyote.

Those experiencing COVID-19 related symptoms may not come to any University property or participate in any University-related activity. Campus community members who develop COVID-19 related symptoms while on University property or participating in any University-related activity must leave campus or remove themselves from a University-related activity.

How do guests or vendors complete the daily health screen?

Guests and vendors working on campus can complete a daily health screen prior to reporting to the campus.  In addition, a QR code is posted on the exterior doors of campus buildings and can be used to access the online daily health screen.

I completed my daily health screen and it says that I am not permitted to come to campus, what do I do?

Risk Management will follow up with those individuals who fail the daily health screen for any reason.  You will be contacted to determine what your next steps are.  This may include being approved by Risk Management to report to campus, being asked to self-isolate or quarantine, or being asked to participate in a COVID test. 

Employees that are not permitted to access the campus should report to their appropriate administrator and use available accrued sick leave and or/the COVID Extended Paid Administrative Leave as appropriate for the situation.

Do we have to do the daily health screening if we have been vaccinated and have done the self-certification?

Yes, conducting a daily health check is a requirement on campus.  Although rare, vaccinated individuals may still contract COVID.  It is important to conduct a self-check for symptoms prior to coming to the campuses.

If I unexpectedly visit other areas of campus than I listed on my daily health screen, should I submit another one with the updates?

No, there is no need to complete another form.  The health screen is one of many tools used for contact tracing and campus notification.  You can find location information for the “On Campus Case Count” on the Return of the Pack website.

Is the campus considering a telecommuting/remote work policy going forward?

Yes, a post-pandemic steering committee has been formed to address telecommuting. That group is scheduled to meet in the Fall and should have recommendations about telecommuting by Spring 2022.
