Checking for Symptoms

COVID-19 requires all of us to be even more attentive to our health, regularly checking for symptoms associated with the virus.

For students

Starting in fall quarter 2020, all students living on campus or taking in-person classes must complete a daily COVID-19 symptom screening survey and get regular COVID-19 tests. Read more.

For employees

All employees who work on-site at a UCSC property (owner or leased) must complete a daily COVID-19 symptom check questionnaire prior to reporting for work. Effective immediately, these employees must enroll in the program.

Once registered, employees will receive a daily symptom questionnaire each morning at 3 a.m. Employees must complete this questionnaire at home, before coming to work.  The questionnaire is brief and should take less than four minutes to complete.

Employees who are not working on-site consistently, but making occasional visits to work on-site, must complete a Symptom Check Questionnaire for each instance that they come to campus to work on-site.

For employees working at the main campus, select your location, region, then your specific building. See map for reference.

For visitors

All scheduled and unscheduled visitors to the UC Santa Cruz owned or leased property must complete the UCSC Visitor COVID-19 Symptom Check Questionnaire prior to entering the campus for each day when entering the campus. 

Visitors are defined as anyone who is not a UC Santa Cruz employee (faculty, staff and other academic appointees) or student, and who will be entering on-site at a UCSC owned or leased property. The following is the link for the online UCSC Visitor COVID-19 Symptom Check Questionnaire. Read frequently asked questions about symptom checks for visitors.
