Personal Risk Assessment
For Faculty, Staff, and Students
All members of the Misericordia University community share in the responsibility to keep one another safe as we try to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our community. One of the most effective ways we have of preserving our well-being is by monitoring our individual health daily before we come in contact, even socially distant, with others. All students, faculty, and staff should use our new smart phone app, LiveSafe/WorkSafe, every day before you come to work or class. You should also use it on the weekends or days you are not scheduled to come to campus as a way of monitoring your health. By completing a few simple questions each day, we can be reminded about some of the risk elements that would be indicators to stay home or in our residence rooms.
Detailed instructions on how to acquire and use this free app have been provided by the COUGARCARE team.

Please remember the three W's: 1. always wear a mask when you are not alone in a private space. 2. Wash your hands often, and 3. watch your physical distancing from others, both on campus and off. If we limit our risk and maximize the many preventative steps we take, our campus can be successful in containing the spread of COVID-19.
