Covid-19 Daily Self-Screening Questions

Each day before coming to campus, protect yourself and others by checking off the items below – even if you are fully vaccinated against Covid-19. Safety is our shared responsibility.

  • Do you have a fever (temperature over 100.4º F or 38º C) without having taken any fever-reducing medications? 
  • Do you have a loss of smell or taste
  • Do you have a cough
  • Do you have muscle aches
  • Do you have a sore throat
  • Do you have shortness of breath
  • Do you have chills
  • Do you have a new or unusual headache
  • Have you experienced new onset of any gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or loss of appetite in the last few days? 
  • Have you, or anyone you have been in close contact with for 15 cumulative minutes in a 24-hour period, been diagnosed with Covid-19 within the last two weeks?  
    • If you are fully vaccinated (and it has been less than 5 months since completing your primary series of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or less than 2 months since your J&J vaccine), or you have received a booster dose of vaccine, and you are asymptomatic, you do not need to quarantine following a known exposure to Covid-19. 
    • However, recent guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) state you should get tested 5 days after your exposure, even if you don’t have symptoms. 
    • You should also wear a well-fitting face mask in public indoor spaces for 10 days following exposure or until your test result is negative.
    • If you become symptomatic, isolate yourself from others, get tested for Covid-19, and inform your healthcare provider of your vaccination status. 
  • Have you been asked to self-isolate or quarantine by a medical professional or a local public health official within the last ten days? 

Remember, stay home if you develop any illness symptoms – even if you think it is a common cold.
