Daily Self-Screening/Reporting Process

Self-Screening

Each day, prior to visiting any UTRGV campus/off-campus facilities, all University students and employees must review the current version of the UT Health RGV screening questions regarding COVID-19-related symptoms

Do not access the campus/off-campus facilities if:
  • You answer yes to any of the screening questions or
  • You have been tested for COVID-19 and have not been officially released by a COVID-19 Response Team Member.

Reporting

Instead of accessing campus/off-campus facilities:
  • Communicate with your instructors/supervisor so arrangements can be made with you to complete your academic requirements/work assignments.
  • Fill out the Preliminary COVID-19 Screening Form. You will receive an immediate email response from the COVID-19 team.
  • Based on the results, you will be contacted to determine the appropriate plan of action and told to either quarantine, isolate, get tested, or return to work.
  • Students or employees may not return to UTRGV premises until they are released by a member of the COVID-19 response team.
  • The COVID-19 Response Team is responsible for identifying and contacting others who may have been at risk.

If you develop symptoms or start to feel unwell while on campus, follow the same process:

  • Leave campus/work immediately.
  • Communicate with your instructor/supervisor so arrangements can be made with you to complete your academic requirements/work assignments.
  • Fill out the Screening Form.
  • Wait for instructions from the COVID-19 Response Team.
