How to complete my Personal Health Screening

A mobile-friendly online form will be used for personal health screening which involves taking your temperature daily and answering questions related to COVID-19 symptoms and any potential exposure you may have had to the virus. Completing the personal health screening each day prior to your first day of return to campus is strongly recommended. After your first day of return to campus, the personal health screening will be required daily for the duration of the Fall Term or until you are no longer regularly coming to campus. COVID-19 diagnostic testing is not required for returning to campus.

With focus and determination, the University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences continues its journey to create a more inclusive University environment for all faculty, students and staff. The University Chief Executive Officer and President reconstituted the Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Access (IDEA) Committee for action – to facilitate policies, guidelines, and programs that support the University’s commitment to developing exceptional practitioners where all students, faculty, and staff have a sense of belonging.

The IDEA Committee is excited about its progress and learnings to date. Visit here for some highlights.

For suspected exposure or presumed positive situations for faculty, staff and students who are currently reporting to campus, please contact reentry@usa.edu or 855-GOUSAHS.
