Mandatory reporting of visits to campus buildings using Campus Check-In

Update for employees and students

As part of our staged return to campus plans for Fall term, we are sharing details of a three-point approach to supporting the health and safety of our campus community.

  • We have developed a tool called Campus Check-In that will help us monitor campus building occupancy levels and assist with contact tracing COVID-19 cases in our campus communities.
  • This tool allows us to follow up with effective contact tracing should there be any positive cases of COVID-19 on our campus.
  • Campus Checkin also includes a requirement for everyone to conduct a self-assessment before coming to campus. Effective, September 8, 2020, you must record every visit to campus buildings using Campus Check-In.
