SAFE@Stout COVID-19 Daily Self-Screening & Guidance

COVID-19 Daily Self-Screening Checklist

UW Stout is implementing a self-screening process to support the early identification of illness and help protect the health and safety of our community. All employees and students should complete the COVID-19 Daily Self-Checklist before reporting to campus. Employees and students who are taking classes or working remotely from home or at a non-UW Stout location do not need to complete this screening, although it is encouraged as a best practice.

Based on guidance from the CDC, employees should consider these questions each day before coming to campus.

Do you have any of the following symptoms, even if very mild?

  • Fever or feeling feverish
  • Muscle aches/Body aches
  • Nausea, Vomiting or Diarrhea
  • Chills
  • Shortness of breath/ difficulty breathing
  • Loss of taste or smell
  • Other respiratory symptoms
  • Cough
  • Sore Throat
  • Headache
  • Fatigue

*Evaluate these symptoms compared with how they are different or similar to your baseline health, i.e. worse than normal, allergies, etc.

Exposure Screening

  • If within the past 14 days you were in close contact with a person who is positive for COVID-19, stay home and follow the guidance from your health care provider and local public health department.
  • Have you been asked to self-isolate or quarantine by a medical professional or a local public health official? If yes, stay home and follow the guidance from your health care provider and local public health department.

* Close contact includes being less than 6 feet of the person with a confirmed case of COVID 19 for 15 minutes or more, living with a person who has COVID-19 or having direct contact with infectious droplets/secretions of a COVID-19 case, (i.e. being coughed on, kissing, sharing utensils or other objects.)

If you begin to feel ill while at work or during class

  • Inform your supervisor of your symptoms
  • Leave campus and go home
  • Faculty/Staff contact (by phone) your health care provider for medical guidance
  • Students contact the Student Health Service by phone or secure messaging. If after hours, contact the local clinic.
