Health Checkpoints Begin Sept. 8

Re: Campus Access - Health Checkpoints Begin Sept. 8
To: All Employees
Sept. 3, 2020
Beginning Tuesday, Sept. 8, 2020 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., all faculty, staff and students and campus visitors will be required to provide proof of daily COVID-19 symptom health screening or be screened prior to entering to campus to affirm they are symptom free.
Signs will be clearly placed to explain that health screenings will be required, and direct people to enter campus by using only the Bellevue Road entrance.
Upon entry, everyone will be driving through a COVID-19 symptom screening checkpoint. Individuals who are already using the campus health screening app/email and are able to display a green screen with the correct correlating date will be waived through the screening checkpoint.
Access to parking on campus, beyond Bellevue Lot, will be through Loop Road.
Those who are not using the health screening app/email will be directed through one of several screening rows in the Bellevue parking lot. Drivers and passengers MUST remain in their vehicle; screeners will ask all occupants about symptoms and check their temperatures. Those who are symptom-free will be allowed onto campus.
We encourage everyone to use the health app/email to expedite this process and avoid the longer screening queues.
Bicyclists and pedestrians will have a separate screening area in the same general location.
Those with a temperature of 100.4 or higher will be directed off campus. Faculty and staff with symptoms will be directed to contact their dean or supervisor and the COVID Response Center, at 209-228-0000. Students with symptoms will be directed to contact the Student Health Center at 209-228-2273 and the COVID Response Center. Approved vendors displaying symptoms will be directed to contact their primary care provider and not be allowed on campus.
Those without specific reason to be on campus, and prior approval, are not permitted entry.
Scholars Lane and Ranchers Road will be closed until additional staff are identified to support a screening location at those entries.
Health screening checkpoints are required for universities to open as part of California’s COVID-19 guidance for institutions of higher education (8.7.20).
We ask for your patience as we begin implementing this added measure of risk mitigation for our campus.
