On-Campus Health Assessments

When reporting to campus each day, all students, faculty, staff, and registered guests are required to complete a health assessment and have their temperature checked.

At that time, you will be asked two health questions that will be recorded on the COVID-19 Health Tracking Form. After completing the health and temperature assessment, you will receive a colored wristband to wear which indicates that you have completed the health check.

Personal Health Assessments

All students, employees, and visitors are responsible for personally assessing their own health and possible exposure to the virus causing COVID-19 each day they are coming to campus. This includes a recommendation that each individual considers whether they have experienced COVID-related symptoms including:

  •  Fever
  •  Chronic Cough
  •  Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  •  Chills
  •  Muscle pain
  •  Sore throat
  •  Loss of taste or smell

This list is not all possible symptoms. Other less common symptoms have been reported, including gastrointestinal symptoms like nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea. If you exhibit COVID-related symptoms, or have been in close contact with someone who may have COVID-19, you should immediately contact your healthcare provider and/or the Washington County Health Department by telephone (740-374-2782), and avoid contact with other individuals.

Employees experiencing COVID-related symptoms should not report to work, should notify their supervisor of their absence in accordance with procedures, and should follow COVID Testing Protocol.

Students with symptoms are required to refrain from attending in-person classes, academic events, or other activities and should follow COVID Testing Protocol.

These requirements will be updated as new information about the virus develops and we monitor and evaluate data. (last updated July 30, 2020)
