COVID-19 Self-Screening for Employees

Most of our employees are still working from home under the state’s “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” order. For those employees who are currently working on campus — and in anticipation of those who will eventually be transitioning back — we are asking all employees to self-screen for symptoms of COVID-19 before coming to campus.

Coming to campus sick or with symptoms puts the entire campus community at an unnecessary risk for spreading the novel coronavirus, the virus that causes COVID-19. By working together, we can maintain a healthy work environment for all.

Answer these questions honestly and only come to campus if you’ve answered “no” to every question:

  • Do you have a temperature at or above 100.4° or any reason to be concerned you are developing a temperature today (without having taken a fever-reducing medicine)?
  • Since your last day on campus, have you experienced a new cough that you cannot attribute to another health condition?
  • Since your last day on campus, have you experienced new shortness of breath that you cannot attribute to another health condition?
  • Since your last day on campus, have you experienced a new sore throat that you cannot attribute to another health condition?
  • Since your last day on campus, have you experienced new muscle aches that you cannot attribute to another health condition or a specific activity such as physical exercise?
  • Since your last day on campus, have you had a temperature at or above 100.4° or the sense of having a fever?
  • Within the last 14 days, have you had close contact, without the use of appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), with someone who is currently sick with suspected or confirmed COVID-19? (Note: Close contact is defined as within 6 feet for more than 10 consecutive minutes.)

If you cannot confidently answer “no” to the above questions, do not come to campus. Contact your supervisor to work remotely or use sick time.

By coming to campus, you are attesting that you confidently answered “no” to the above questions and have a very low risk of carrying or spreading COVID-19. If you cannot answer “no” to the above questions, yet you feel unable to take sick leave for a variety of reasons, contact your supervisor to find a solution. If your symptoms are severe enough, you may need to contact your medical provider.
