Beginning May 11, 2020, we implemented University-built symptom monitoring software integrated with daily text messaging sent via our emergency notification system. As we integrated EverBridge, we migrated to using a symptom tracker that is part of the app. Users can receive daily reminders for the required twice-daily symptom monitoring. Users who do not choose to download EverBridge are still required to complete daily symptom monitoring; however, they can use the University-built symptom monitoring option in PioneerWeb for this purpose.
To sign up to receive daily text notifications:
- Log on to PioneerWeb
- Click on the “Employee” or “Student” tab
- Under the “My Resources” section (on the far left) click on “Employee/Student Information”
- Click on “Critical Incident Notification Preferences”
- Enter your cell number
Everyone with access to campus buildings is required to report twice daily on the presence or absence of symptoms that could be indicative of COVID-19. They are also asked whether they have traveled out of Colorado and whether they have been in close contact with someone positive or presumed positive for the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19. Depending on their answer to the symptom survey, individuals are advised whether or not to return to campus, and if not, what steps to pursue (e.g. self-quarantine, see their medical provider, etc.). Compliance with the requirement to complete the symptom monitoring software is verified via daily comparison of the ID# with survey responses to access records. Non-compliant responders receive follow-up support to resolve technological issues, handle accidental non-compliance and allow temporary stops for vacation. Persistent non-compliance results in termination of campus access.
