Illness

Does the University require everyone to complete a COVID screening tool before coming to campus? How often must the screening tool be completed?

Each day you physically come to campus, prior to your arrival, you will be required to complete a self-administered assessment via a secure website. This includes faculty, staff, students, guests/visitors and vendors. Once the assessment is complete, and you are cleared to come to campus, you will receive an email indicating permission has been granted.  If you are not cleared to come to campus, you will receive recommended next steps.

What should I do if I am ill?

  1. Stay home or go home with minimal contact with others if you are on campus.
  2. Contact your health care provider.
  3. Contact your supervisor and work with your HR business partner to develop a plan of action.
  4. Follow the direction you receive from your health care provider.

What should I do if I test positive for COVID-19?

  1. Contact your health care provider.
  2. Follow the direction you receive from your health care provider.
  3. Answer your phone when public health contacts you during their contact tracing investigation.This can take 24-48 hours.
  4. Contact your supervisor and work with your HR business partner to develop a plan of action.

What should I do if a student/student worker reports that they are ill?

  1. Ask them to stay home or go home with minimal contact with others if they are on campus.
  2. Ask them to contact their health care provider or the SCSU Medical Clinic at (320) 308-3193. If students are going to contact a health care professional off campus, ask them to share any positive COVID-19 results with SCSU Medical Clinic.
  3. Ask them to follow the direction they receive from their health care provider to determine how long they should stay home and if they should be tested for COVID-19.

What should I do if a student/student worker reports that they are COVID-19 positive?

  1. Indicate to the student that they do not have to report/share private medical information with faculty or staff.
  2. Ask them to contact their health care provider and/or the SCSU Medical Clinic at (320) 308-3193. It is helpful if the student reports their positive case to the Medical Clinic, regardless if they sought services elsewhere. Knowing this information helps the SCSU Medical Clinic in determining next steps.  
  3. Ask them to follow the direction they receive from their health care provider
  4. Encourage them to answer their phone when public health contacts them during their contact tracing

Are there any HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) issues that I need to know about?

Students should not share personal health information with faculty/staff aside from SCSU Medical Clinic staff.  If a student does share that they have tested positive for COVID-19, faculty and staff should ask the student to contact SCSU Medical Clinic @ (320)308-3193.  Faculty and staff should not share the information given by the student.

Does the university have a plan to assist with contact tracing? 

We are currently working with the Minnesota Department of Health and local public officials to develop a local process for contact tracing.  It is anticipated this process will be implemented for the opening of the academic year. We are asking that faculty utilized assigned seating when conducting in-class sessions to assist in contact tracing if necessary.

Does SCSU offer COVID testing on campus for students?

COVID-19 testing is available for students at the on-campus Medical Clinic.  Call 320-308-3193 to make an appointment. 

Will the campus community be informed of positive cases on campus?

Weekly campus case rates are available on the Bring Huskies Home COVID-19 Campus Dashboard. Statistics are updated each Friday.
