Daily Health Check for Employees

CSU will utilize Healthy Roster for health checks of all students, employees and residents who are not fully vaccinated. Find more details for students on the “Students” page. 

The Healthy Roster survey works through a smart phone, computer, laptop or tablet. Each day, Healthy Roster will send a text message or email to users prompting them to engage in the survey to report potential COVID-19 exposure, presence of COVID-19 symptoms and body temperature. 

  • A satisfactory survey will result in a “green screen” indicating approval to access campus buildings. 
  • An unsatisfactory survey will result in a “red screen” indicating disapproval to access campus buildings. 

You are required to submit a daily health check using the Healthy Roster app. You will begin using Healthy Roster on Monday, August 9, 2021. 

Employees are automatically enrolled in Healthy Roster, and fully vaccinated employees can choose to opt out of using Healthy Roster by sending a photo of your completed COVID-19 vaccination card (with social security number blocked out) to the COVID-19 administrator via email (rchastain@ClarksSummitU.edu) or phone (570-585-9326). 

Off-Campus Employees who are Not Fully Vaccinated

Off-campus employees (faculty and staff) who are not fully vaccinated must respond to the questions presented by Healthy Roster daily (Sunday to Saturday) prior to the start of work regardless of their work location for the day. 

If the off-campus employee does not receive Healthy Roster approval (indicated by a “red screen”) that employee must: 

  • Refrain from coming to campus. 
  • Contact his or her direct supervisor. 
  • Consult with their medical care provider to discuss options for testing and treatment. 
    Residential Employees who are Not Fully Vaccinated

    Residential employees (faculty and staff, including resident directors) who are not fully vaccinated must respond to the questions presented by Healthy Roster daily (Sunday to Saturday) prior to the start of work regardless of their work location for the day. 

    If the residential employee does not receive Healthy Roster approval (indicated by a “red screen”) that employee must: 

    • Contact their direct supervisor. 
    • Refrain from entering campus buildings other than their own residence (including the mailroom). 
    • Refrain from all institutional-sponsored activities and events. 
    • Inform the Office for Student Development. 
    • Consult with their medical care provider to discuss options for testing and treatment.

      Residential non-employees who not fully vaccinated and are 18 and older (including any non-CSU-student living on campus who is not employed by CSU) must respond to the questions presented by Healthy Roster daily (Sunday to Saturday). If they do not receive Healthy Roster approval (indicated by a “red screen)’ that person must:

        Fully Vaccinated Employees

        Employees are automatically enrolled in Healthy Roster, and fully vaccinated employees can choose to opt out of using Healthy Roster by sending a photo of your completed COVID-19 vaccination card (with social security number blocked out) to the COVID-19 administrator via email (rchastain@ClarksSummitU.edu) or phone (570-585-9326). 

        However, fully vaccinated employees should immediately take action if he or she: 

        • Experiences COVID-19 symptoms. 
        • Has been exposed to COVID-19 or someone suspected to have COVID-19. 

        If fully vaccinated employees show COVID-19 symptoms, the employee will: 

        • Be on restriction until you’ve heard from a physician with next steps. Restriction includes wearing a face covering when on campus around others, practicing physical distancing and restricting activities on campus to only what is essential. 
        • Consult with a qualified medical care provider to determine next steps.  
        • If the qualified medical care provider recommends the next step of testing, treatment or quarantine related to COVID-19, the employee should: 
          • Contact his or her supervisor. 
          • Remain off campus with a plan to do remote work if needed with approval from supervisor. 
          • Obtain a COVID-19 test, if recommended by the medical care provider. 
          • Contact the COVID-19 administrator by email (rchastain@ClarksSummitU.edu, phone call or text (570-585-9326). 

          If a fully vaccinated employee is exposed to someone confirmed to have COVID-19: 

          After exposure to someone who has or is suspected to have COVID-19, the fully vaccinated employee will be placed on restriction until he or she receives negative test result or when he or she is released by the COVID-19 administrator after 10–14 days. 

           Restriction includes: 

          • Wearing a face covering outside of his or her office, practicing physical distancing and restricting on-campus activities to only what is essential. 
          • Getting tested for COVID-19 three to five days after last exposure can reduce restriction time when a negative test result is received and produced to the COVID-19 administrator.
