Self-Administered Wellness Check

Here is a symptoms check list from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It includes a COVID self-checker.

Employees who have been instructed to return to the workplace must conduct symptom monitoring every day before reporting to work. You must be free of ANY symptoms potentially related to COVID-19 in order to report to work.

Before coming to campus each day or leaving one’s university housing living quarters to go to other parts of campus, all members of the campus community must complete a self-administered wellness check based on CDC and ODH guidelines. The UC COVID Check app provides a simple way to conduct that self assessment and report any symptoms to University Health Services. UC's COVID Check app is free and easy to use. It can be downloaded through the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. A web-based REDCap survey is also available as an alternative to using the app. Already, approximately 12,000 campus community members have downloaded the app. 

For all members of the campus community, including students, we request that no one come to campus if you are exhibiting a temperature that exceeds 100.4 degrees. It is advised that you take your temperature each morning before arriving to campus. If you don't have a thermometer available, please guage your own health and wellness by other means, including whether you feel that you may have a fever. And remember to use the UC COVID Check App or web-based REDCap survey before coming to campus or leaving one's on-campus residence.

Symptoms may be mild or severe and may appear 2 to 14 days after exposure to the virus; however, some people with COVID-19 have no symptoms.

Seek prompt medical attention if you develop emergency warning signs for COVID-19, as defined by the CDC. 

Please consult your personal healthcare provider for any other severe or concerning symptoms.

Again, if you have signs of COVID-19, do not come to campus. There can be no exceptions. You are required to wear a facial covering to avoid possible virus transmission to others.

If you develop symptoms at work, leave immediately.

Conditions that Indicate Higher Risk for Severe Illness if Infected

COVID-19 is a new disease and there is limited information regarding risk factors for severe disease.

Based on currently available information and clinical expertise, older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions might be at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19.

Employees who have been instructed to return to work on-site or other members of the campus community who have concerns about returning to campus because they qualify as a person at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19 according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, they are pregnant, or they have a disability that is exacerbated by COVID-19 should consult the below links and information:
