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 MU Daily Symptom Tracker through Medicat, 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 use the MU Daily Symptom Tracker have been provided below 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.
MU Daily Symptom Tracker
All students and employees are expected to fill out the MU Daily Symptom Tracker each day before coming to campus. All those who attend campus should have received a green check and approval from the symptom tracker.
If you are symptomatic or have received a stay in place email from the symptom tracker, please stay in place and wait for instructions from the Health Center or Cougar Care Team.
Everyone is strongly encouraged to use the MU Daily Symptom Tracker everyday beginning immediately.
