New Health Check tool will support a safe return to work on campus

Last modified on

Stanford University is introducing a new tool, Health Check, to support the safe return of members of the Stanford community to our campuses. The tool was developed by the Occupational Health Center’s Workplace Health Innovation Lab and University IT to streamline the required health status reporting process for those working at a Stanford location.

Stanford Health Check will be rolled out to the campus community on Friday, May 22. It supports the university’s overall strategy for a gradual, phased restart of campus operations, and will support our compliance with a new county order requiring daily temperature and COVID-19 symptom screening for those working on campus.

All faculty, staff, postdocs and students who are working on-site at a Stanford location will be required to use Health Check beginning Friday, May 22, to self-report their health status at least one hour before arriving on-site each day they expect to be working on campus. Based on information entered, the system will immediately inform users if they are cleared to be on campus that day.

If you are not currently working at an on-campus location, you will not need to begin using the system until you are notified that you can return to on-campus work.

The system is not currently required for students who are living in campus residences but are not working in a campus facility. In the meantime, these students should still report COVID-19 symptoms to the Dean of Students Office.

Personal information entered into the Health Check tool will remain confidential. Managers do not have access to detailed employee health information in the system. More information about how Stanford Health Check handles your personal data can be found at the Health Check FAQ.

The tool was first piloted with essential SLAC staff beginning May 4. In recent days, it has been used by other Stanford employees working on campus to provide essential services. To meet the requirements of the newest Santa Clara County public health order, effective May 22, daily completion of Health Check is required before coming to work on campus.

If you have trouble using Health Check and you are sick, you should stay home and inform your supervisor, or your department or lab manager. If you have trouble using Health Check but are not sick, you should consult your supervisor or department or lab manager for assistance. Additional guidance will be coming shortly to supervisors and HR managers.

As we gain more experience with the tool and gather feedback, we will continue to enhance it. Your participation is critical as we work to limit the spread of COVID-19 in our work locations and support the health and well-being of everyone in our university community. For more information, please visit the Health Check FAQ.

Access Stanford Health Check through mobile app

Last modified on

In support of a safe return to campuses, the relaunched Stanford Mobile app is now available with the Health Check feature, enabling you to conveniently report your daily health status from your iPhone.

Stanford Health Check is an online tool required daily of all students, faculty, staff, and postdocs who plan to be on-site — or who are living on-site — at any Stanford or SLAC location. Its goal is to keep our on-site community members healthy by helping them track their health daily and identify any symptoms of illness early on, thereby limiting the viral spread of COVID-19.

As we gradually return members of our community to Stanford’s locations, ensuring the Health Check is available from the university’s official mobile app was critical to the relaunch of Stanford Mobile. The enhanced app became available for download this week in the App Store for iOS devices. It’s coming soon for Android users to download on Google Play.

Updates on COVID-19 vaccinations and Health Check

Last modified on

Dear Stanford community,

About 1,160 undergraduates moved into our residential halls earlier this month, and nearly half of them are first-year frosh who are living on campus for the first time. The fact that we are able to bring so many students back for the summer after such a difficult year is a testament to the hard work, dedication and flexibility across our community that are enabling more and more of us to return to campus for the first time in a long time.

The university continues to review public health guidance and conditions and adjust campus protocols, while continuing to mitigate risks associated with COVID-19. An important step occurred June 26, when the restricted-activity period for undergraduates ended and we implemented new guidance from Cal/OSHA, the state’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health.

Following up on our guidance after the Cal/OSHA decision was announced, we are writing to share updated information and additional steps we are taking to prepare for more normal times ahead – while continuing to put a premium on health and safety measures. Much of this guidance centers on vaccinations and Health Check submissions, which are essential parts of our toolbox.

Vaccination status and Health Check submissions

Several changes will involve the process for reporting vaccination status on Health Check and help highlight information that reflects improving conditions within our community.

First, beginning July 1, faculty, staff and postdoctoral scholars who have (1) listed their vaccination date(s) and manufacturers in Health Check and (2) uploaded an image of their documentation on Health Check will no longer be required to make Health Check submissions when coming to campus (unless they become symptomatic or receive a positive COVID test result) or to undergo regular testing. The upload feature will become available in Health Check at 5 p.m. on July 1.

In the coming weeks, students will also have this option after submitting vaccine documentation through the VadenPatient portal.

Second, two changes regarding vaccination status and related documentation for faculty, staff and postdoctoral scholars:

  • Effective Sept. 9, the Health Check question on vaccination status will require individuals who are vaccinated to upload an image of their documentation. Currently, the question only requires vaccination date(s) and manufacturer.
  • Effective Aug. 9, individuals who come to campus and have not indicated they are fully vaccinated will be required to undergo weekly testing, continue making daily Health Check submissions and wear face coverings.

For now, testing continues to be required for students, regardless of vaccination status.

We encourage you to be vaccinated for COVID-19, and we thank you for continuing to follow safety guidelines. Click here for resources and links to vaccination providers.

Vaccination information on COVID dashboards

As we shared last week, the Stanford COVID dashboards began including data on vaccinated individuals June 28. The totals reflect submissions to Health Check in two categories: students and faculty, staff and postdoctoral scholars. Because submissions are required only for those coming to campus and voluntary for any others, the totals are somewhat lower than the actual number of vaccinated individuals in the Stanford community.

Already, the results are very encouraging. More than 90 percent of those making Health Check submissions report that they have been vaccinated for COVID-19. We continue to encourage vaccinations for community members and their loved ones. Click here for resources and links to vaccination providers.

Physical distancing and density

We have made further revisions based on the latest updates to state and federal regulations regarding physical distancing and density.

These rules no longer contain general requirements on minimum distancing between individuals or on COVID-related building or room density. As a result, physical distancing is not required, except for certain limited situations for unvaccinated individuals as described in our updated guidance.

Privacy

We are asking all members of the Stanford community to continue to be respectful of each other’s privacy. Our colleagues need to make certain decisions at their own pace and based on their own comfort levels.

Please keep in mind that Health Check, and the VadenPatient portal for students, are the only approved channels through which the university asks for vaccination status. As with any other personal medical or health issue, supervisors, faculty and other colleagues should not ask students or co-workers about their COVID-19 vaccination status.

Anyone who is concerned about the vaccination status of colleagues, students or others they encounter on campus may choose to continue wearing a face covering or participate in the university’s free optional testing program.

Looking ahead, the coming weeks and fall quarter promise to be an exciting, hopeful time for our community. Thank you for your patience and understanding, your willingness to adjust and, most of all, your efforts to keep one another safe.

Sincerely,
Russell Furr

Detailed information on COVID-19 testing and Stanford Health Check requirements for students

Dear students,

Welcome to students who are new to campus, and welcome back and a huge thanks to returning students for everything they did during fall quarter to keep the prevalence of COVID-19 low. We are writing today with detailed information on COVID-19 testing and Stanford Health Check requirements, and what happens when a student does not meet these requirements. We urge you to read the entire email. But first, here are two quick summaries:

Summary of testing requirements for students

Summary of student testing reminders

We hope this information will help you to feel as safe as possible on campus. We acknowledge any COVID email could cause anxiety or worry, and this message is coming to you on the very busy and important day of the U.S. presidential inauguration. We want you to know that Counseling and Psychological Services, the Office for Religious and Spiritual Life, and our Residence Deans and GLO Deans are available to help if you are in need.

We would like to express our gratitude to the ASSU, GSC and the COVID-19 Graduate Student Advisory Committee for their help in reviewing the plans described below. We are working now on implementing an excellent GSAC suggestion for a weekly prize drawing for students who comply in a timely manner with our testing program. We will share more on this soon.

We know you may have specific questions. Please reach us here with your general suggestions, comments and concerns about this unique year. If you have a personal question, please submit a ServiceNow ticket.

Sincerely,

Updates on our Health Check and COVID-19 testing requirements 

1. Stanford Health Check 

Stanford Health Check is an online tool required daily for all students living on campus or coming to campus frequently. Students coming to campus occasionally should complete Health Check on the day they plan to be here, before they arrive. Stanford Health Check is different from Verily Life Services’ symptom tracker (you’ll find more on Verily under #2 below).

Stanford Health Check helps track your health daily and identify any symptoms of illness early on, thereby limiting the viral spread of COVID-19. Widespread use of this tool across the university helps us ensure that everybody here is in a safe environment to the greatest extent possible. All information entered is secured and protected. Here is a Health Check FAQ.

On the Health Check homepage, you will see a link to your “onsite access badge.” Students should be prepared to show their badge upon entering any Stanford location, including Stanford Libraries and dining halls. Health Check is available on the university’s official mobile app.

The badge color is either green or red. Your badge will be green when you have not reported COVID symptoms and you are in compliance with our COVID testing program as described below. Students with questions or concerns about their Health Check badge can submit a ServiceNow ticket.

Beginning Feb. 1, students will be asked to show their badge at the entry to each of our dining halls and those with a red badge will be directed to pick up meals at a designated area, adjacent to the servery, rather than entering our dining halls. Additional details about dining hall access and the steps we are taking to keep our dining halls as safe as possible are available on the Residential & Dining Enterprises website.

2. COVID-19 testing 

On-campus COVID-19 testing with Verily Life Services is required twice weekly (specifically, every 3 days) for students living on campus or coming to campus frequently. Students who are on campus occasionally are required to take a test on the day they are on campus. We now have two testing locations: McCaw Hall at the Arrillaga Alumni Center and Tresidder Memorial Union. Here are step-by-step instructions for students who are new to campus.

In order to maximize the health and safety of our community, we have put in place a new protocol to support the required testing program.

  • Beginning Jan. 24, after you miss a test, you will receive an email notification from the university, your Health Check onsite access badge will be red, and you will lose access to Stanford locations that require a green badge for entry.
  • As noted above, these locations include Stanford Libraries and dining halls. Beginning Feb. 1, students with red badges will be directed to pick up meals at a designated area rather than entering our dining halls. Your green badge will be restored within 24 hours of taking your next test and completing a Health Check.
  • After three missed tests, you will be subject to a Dean of Students administrative review for a Campus Compact violation and you will lose access to Stanford locations that require a key card for entry, except your campus residence. These locations include departmental buildings and labs. Your access will be restored within 24 hours of taking your next test and completing a Health Check.

Students who receive notifications for missed tests will be given a link to submit a ServiceNow ticket in case they believe they received the messages in error (because, for example, they are temporarily away from campus and therefore unable to test with Verily) and/or lost access to campus buildings in error. We are committed to responding in a timely manner during business hours.

We expect few students to lose access to shared spaces; our observation is the vast majority of students are doing everything they can to test on schedule and contribute to the overall health and safety of the university community. Again, we would like to extend our gratitude to all of you for your efforts.


COVID notifications for building occupants

We know that you value updated information about COVID conditions on campus in order to make informed decisions about your personal safety. Many of you are familiar with Stanford’s COVID dashboards, which we continue to update regularly. In addition, we are providing email notifications to students of any local positive cases.

Close contacts

People known to have been within 6 feet of a positive individual for more than 15 minutes are considered close contacts and are promptly notified directly by medical professionals for further evaluation. Everyone else who may have occupied a building in the same general time period as the positive individual are not close contacts as defined by the CDC, and are not considered as having elevated risk of exposure.

Non-close contacts

Out of an abundance of caution, the university also will be providing notifications to non-close contacts in the following ways:

  • Floor-level notifications for on-campus residences with shared restrooms (because students in restrooms remove their face coverings to brush teeth etc.)
  • Building-level notifications for on-campus residences when 3 or more residents have tested positive within 7 days.
  • Building-wide notifications for workplaces and instructional spaces.
  • More information is available here.

Students who receive these notifications should continue to monitor themselves for COVID symptoms, and if they develop symptoms, such as fever, cough, or shortness of breath, contact Vaden Health Services or their primary health care provider and report this through Health Check.


The outlook for student households, essential visitors, and other in-person gatherings

We are moving ahead with student households and essential visitors, which will be phased in as the quarter progresses as follows:

  • Households and essential visitors are permitted now for all graduate and professional students who arrived by Jan. 4.
  • Households and essential visitors will be permitted on Jan. 25 for all graduate, professional and undergraduate students who arrived by Jan. 10.
  • Households and essential visitors will be permitted on Feb. 8 for all graduate, professional and undergraduate students who arrive by Jan. 24.

You will hear from the Dean of Students office with further instructions when you are eligible based on your move-in date. Unfortunately, no other in-person student gatherings are allowed at this time, given COVID-19 conditions in the Bay Area, and consistent with state, county and university guidance, as described in President Tessier-Lavigne and Provost Drell’s Jan. 9 update to the campus community.

We understand that COVID-19 is presenting very difficult challenges around social isolation. We have developed virtual well-being resources, although we know this cannot replace seeing in person people you know and care about deeply.

Additional opportunities for more in-person gatherings might be allowable later this quarter depending upon the prevalence of COVID among students and the status of state and county guidance. We will most certainly update you as gatherings become allowable and encouraged once again.

How to Prepare

Because each person’s diagnosis and healing are unique, your care team is your very best and most knowledgeable guide about preparing for your time in the hospital. Your doctors and nurses will make recommendations about:

  • how you should modify your diet before your hospital stay.
  • whether you should make changes to medications before your hospital stay.
  • whether certain items of clothing like compression garments will support your recovery and transition to healing at home.

They will also talk with you about pain management, mobility, and other wellness milestones that help us know you are ready to leave the hospital.

What to Pack

Packing for a hospital stay depends on what makes you comfortable, how long you may expect to stay, and how far you may be traveling to see us. The basic list is pretty simple:

  • toiletries
  • underwear
  • pajamas
  • robe
  • socks
  • non-skid slippers
  • things to read or do to help you pass the time
  • any supports like hearing aids, eyeglasses, dentures, walkers, or canes
  • comfortable clothes to go home in

You’ll want to leave valuables like jewelry and electronics at home or with your loved ones.
