We will again be using the Daily Health Screening in LiveSafe to monitor the health of our community and to assist with contact tracing.
As of Aug. 15, to keep the University of Hartford community safe, all unvaccinated community members are asked to complete LiveSafe when accessing campus. Visitors, guests, and approved contractors/vendors should also complete LiveSafe when entering campus regardless of vaccination status. Anyone testing positive for COVID-19 or exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms should also complete LiveSafe.
The screening survey consists of a few questions, such as whether you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, live with or have been exposed to anyone with a confirmed or suspected case, or if you have tested positive for COVID-19. Your answers to the questions should be submitted to the best of your knowledge and how you are feeling that day. Based on your answers you will receive one of two responses:
- A Green Check on your screen approves you to go to class, or to come to campus if you live off campus. A Green Check is also required to enter University Commons and the Sports Center.
- A Red X on your screen will direct you to stay off campus, or in your room if you are on-campus. Students: Someone from our Health Team will contact you to follow up. The Health Team may ask you to see a Health Care provider for further evaluation or determine it is safe for you to leave your residence. Employees should contact Human Resources at 860.768.4666 or email@example.com
- For any student, employee or visitor who do not use a smartphone, an online version can be accessed on a computer. You may want to print the results for verification.
If you feel sick, contact Health Services. If you get a test off campus and it is positive, please report the result to Health Services.
