Self-Screening and Illness Reporting
The health and safety of our community is our highest priority. Keeping campus safe and healthy requires active participation from all members of the community. While immunization remains the best way to protect you and the community, there are some members who are not immunized for medical or religious reasons. Therefore, we ask members of the community to adhere to the following self-screening and illness reporting.
Students, faculty and staff should use the daily health screening to report symptoms and illness.
Unvaccinated community members and all guests are required to administer daily health and temperature screenings before arriving on campus or leaving their residence.
Unvaccinated community members are required to complete daily self-administered health screenings before coming to campus or leaving the residence hall.

Temperature screening kiosks remain on campus, but are not required. Self-administered temperature screening kiosks are near building entrances.
Illness Reporting and Excused Absences
Students, faculty and staff must report potential exposure or positive cases of COVID-19 or other illnesses using the UHSP Wellness Check form.
If you are ill or fail the health or temperature screening, please follow the excused absence policy of your school or department.
Self-quarantine helps limit the spread by keeping a person who may have been exposed or who has the virus separate from others until they are no longer contagious.
In self-quarantine, you are to stay in your home or residence hall room and limit all contact with others.
