Dear Reed students, faculty, and staff,
To reduce the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19, we must educate ourselves about prevention and commit to checking ourselves daily for symptoms. Reed community members will be required to complete an online COVID-19 Prevention and Policy Training and the Daily Health Check. Below you will find information about both of these COVID-19 prevention strategies.
COVID-19 Prevention & Policy TrainingThis training focuses on disease transmission, how to protect yourself and others, and Reed-specific policies regarding COVID-19. The training will take approximately 30 minutes.
All students living on campus are required to complete the training before August 11 in order to move into their residence hall. All students living off campus, staff, and faculty are required to complete the training by August 28.
Accessing the training
To access the training, please click on the button below. Note: Reed Kerberos credentials are required to access the training.
If you have questions regarding the training, contact Environmental Health and Safety (EHS). If you have trouble accessing the training, contact Computing & Information Services (CIS) by phone or live chat.
Daily Health Check
Anyone who lives on campus or plans to be on campus must complete the Daily Health Check every day before they leave their residence hall or go to campus.
What questions are asked in the Daily Health Check?
The Daily Health Check asks a few short questions about COVID-19 symptoms and risk factors.
How do I access the Daily Health Check?
Starting on Monday, August 3, you will receive a daily email by 6 a.m. linking to the Daily Health Check. If you plan to be on campus, you must access and complete the Daily Health Check on your computer or mobile device. You will receive a unique link each day; do not attempt to reuse links
How often do I need to complete the Daily Health Check?
Students living on campus must complete the Daily Health Check each day before they leave their residence halls. Staff, faculty, and off-campus students are required to complete the Daily Health Check on days that they plan to be on campus
What happens after I complete the Daily Health Check?
Once you complete the Daily Health Check, you will receive either a green "go" message and email or a red "stop" message and email. If you receive a "go" message, you are cleared to access Reed's buildings and grounds. If you receive a "stop" message, you will receive further information in a follow up email. You may be asked to show proof of the green "go" message while on campus
Who will review my survey responses, and are they confidential?
Your survey responses are confidential. Student responses are reviewed only by the Health & Counseling Center and faculty and staff responses are reviewed only by the human resources office. HCC and HR staff will provide support and follow-up steps to community members who receive “stop” messages
Do vendors and approved visitors have to complete the Daily Health Check?
Vendors or approved visitors will be asked to complete the Daily Health Check before they access the Reed campus. If you are a faculty or staff member who invites a vendor or a visitor to campus, you must provide them with a link to the Daily Health Check and ask them to complete it before they arrive. We will send that link to staff and faculty by August 3
If you have questions regarding the Daily Health Check, please contact the Health & Counseling Center (students) or the human resources office (faculty and staff).
Health & Counseling Center
If at any time you feel that you have COVID-19-like symptoms, you are asked to refrain from coming to campus or refrain from moving around campus. If you are a student experiencing COVID-19-like symptoms, contact your health-care provider or the HCC. If you are a staff or faculty member, contact your health-care provider and human resources.
Thank you for doing your part to keep our community healthy.
