Self-Monitor and Report

Please follow this link to the Daily Self Check.

 

Self-Check

All individuals, as outlined in section 1.1, are expected to conduct a daily self-check for symptoms to assess their risk of being COVID-19 positive prior to accessing College property (other than that individual’s College-owned residence) or an approved instructional site. All individuals intending to access the School of Health Sciences must pass an additional temperature screening prior to entry. The College will distribute a daily self-check questionnaire that has been developed in accordance with Virginia Department of Health guidelines. Anyone answering YES to any of the screening questions is to stay home and report their symptoms to the appropriate College personnel.

 

Self-Monitor

All individuals, as outlined in section 1.1, are expected to continually self-monitor for symptoms throughout the day, especially while on College property. Anyone who develops or experiences COVID-19 symptoms while on College property is to go home and report their symptoms to the appropriate College personnel.

 

Reporting Symptoms

A. Any employee experiencing COVID-19 symptoms must notify their supervisor and report their symptoms to the Office of Human Resources immediately. In addition, employees are strongly encouraged to contact a physician.

B. Any student experiencing COVID-19 symptoms must report their symptoms to the appropriate College official:

i. Students on the Emory campus must notify the College Health Center.

ii. Students on the Marion campus must notify the Associate Dean for the School of Health Sciences.

 

COVID-19 Surveillance

The College will monitor the self-reported symptoms of employees and students as a means of surveillance. Other measures for surveillance available to the College include the daily visit numbers for COVID-like illness to the College Health Center, the number of short-term academic adjustment requests from students due to medical illness, the number of sick leave requests from employees, the number of quarantined students, and the occupancy rate of student isolation rooms.

 

Increased Risk Populations

The College will provide options to support those at increased risk for severe illness to mitigate their exposure risk (e.g. flexible work hours, telework, modified job duties, etc.) as feasible. Employees who are at increased risk for severe illness, as defined by the CDC (i.e. older adults and people with underlying medical conditions), are strongly encouraged to self-identify to the Office of Human Resources.
