Health Monitoring

To help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and reduce the risk of exposure, unvaccinated community members are expected to regularly monitor their personal health status.

Daily Symptom Monitoring

Unvaccinated faculty, students and staff are expected to use the Symptom Tracker web app for daily health monitoring. Completing your daily symptom check and staying home if you have any symptoms are important steps to fostering a healthy campus environment. 

Vaccinated faculty, students and staff who experience symptoms of COVID-19 are expected to report the symptoms using the Symptom Tracker web app prior to coming to campus.
