What is GuideSafe™ Healthcheck?
GuideSafe™ Healthcheck is a web-based COVID-19 assessment tool for employees and students that assesses existence of any current COVID-19-related symptoms, exposure history, and testing history. The required assessment will help us all return to campus safely and help our community beat COVID-19.
GuideSafe™ Healthcheck is used to manage large groups and reduce the risk of further exposure to COVID-19. GuideSafe™ Healthcheck informs public health and university officials about emerging symptom hot spots before these areas have catastrophic consequences. It also helps university health officials prioritize participants who might need COVID-19 testing.
How does GuideSafe™ Healthcheck work?
Employees and students log on regularly to share symptoms — even if you are feeling healthy — to ensure a safe return to campus. The initial survey takes about 20 seconds to complete. Subsequent surveys take about 10 seconds to complete. Employees and students are encouraged to complete GuideSafe™ Healthcheck daily. We require employees and students to complete it daily and offer an option to get a reminder.
If the survey responses indicate the user is symptom-free and has no close exposure to someone with COVID-19 illness, the individual is cleared to re-enter campus.
If GuideSafe™ Healthcheck responses show the user is currently experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or has been exposed to someone with COVID-19, or has been diagnosed with COVID-19 in the preceding month, the user will not be permitted to re-enter campus until medically cleared. If you have symptoms, contact your health care provider and notify your supervisor or appropriate school official. Do not come to work or report to campus (CDC isolation guidance).
Why do I have to report my symptoms so regularly?
Because COVID-19 symptoms are a report at a single slice of time, students and employees should report their symptoms daily and are required to complete GuideSafe™ Healthcheck daily to confirm how they are feeling.
