Complete Your Daily Health Screening

Be aware of the following symptoms, that are unusual or out of the ordinary for you, when you are completing your daily LiveSafe health questionnaire:

  • Fever (100.4° or higher) or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea

If you report the above symptoms, you will see a Red X on your screen. Do not go to class. Stay in your room, or off campus if you are a commuter. Health Services will reach out to you with next steps.
