Symptom Tracking Requirement to All Employees
As previously announced, Radford University developed and launched the Daily Symptom Tracking for COVID-19 Screening. The symptom tracking tool is available at http://www.radford.edu/symptom-tracker. The tool is also available through the RU Mobile app and MyRU portal.
Through the utilization of this tool, all members of the Radford University community are being asked to monitor their health on a daily basis. Due to recent guidelines issued by the Virginia Department of Labor and Industry, the tool is now required to be completed on a daily basis by all employees with any level of in-person engagement and/or on-campus presence. The daily requirement for all employees, except those who are in a full-time telework status, becomes effective this coming Monday (August 24, 2020) and will remain in effect until further notice.
The information collected from the Daily Symptom Tracking for COVID-19 Screening will be utilized to connect individuals with recommended resources based on symptoms. Information will only be shared with the response teams working to reduce the impact of the COVID-19 global health pandemic and its impact on our campus and our community.
Setting a daily routine by always responding to these questions first thing in the morning is a good approach to keeping yourself and others safe and healthy. It is important to note that failure to submit the required screening on a daily basis will result in individual follow-up from the Department of Human Resources and may result in disciplinary action.
