Daily Screening

  • Each of us has a part to play in halting the spread of COVID-19. In order to keep our faculty, staff, and students safe we are implementing a mandatory daily health screening to assess whether employees have COVID-19 symptoms, have recently tested positive or had exposure to the virus, and/or have other risk factors that may spread the virus. All employees must complete the daily assessment prior to arrival each day. This daily health assessment is required under New York State’s school reopening guidance and is meant to maintain the health and safety of our community.

    In an effort to comply with this mandate, TST BOCES in conjunction with Cayuga Health has developed a daily health screening website that allows employees to confirm that they are symptom-free and have not had recent exposure to someone with COVID-19 prior to their arrival at work for the day. If you are currently experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, have recently tested positive or had exposure to the virus, and/or have other risk factors that may spread the virus you are not permitted to be on campus.

    Utilizing the daily screening tool will ensure that we identify individuals who need further evaluation for testing. Depending on your answers to the daily health screening questions, you are assigned a “green” or “red” status. A “green” status permits you to go to campus for the day. If you screen “red” you are not permitted to move around campus, and you will have to schedule a telemedicine visit with a Cayuga Health provider for an assessment and further instructions.

    Starting on Thursday, September 3rd, you will complete the daily health screening, to do this you will go to: http://tstboces.cayugahealth.com. The website is compatible with all smartphones, most web browsers and computer operating systems. Prior to your first screening, please go to that site and it will set up daily emails to your email inbox (there is a phone in screening option if you prefer). In the documents section on this page, you will find detailed instructions for setting up your health screening along with a frequently asked questions (FAQ) document that goes over common questions.

    Again, it is critical that you fill out this brief screening every day. Keeping the virus out of our community will require that every single one of us do everything we can to stop the spread. If you arrive without completing the screening, you will be required to complete the screening before entering your workplace.

    Again, please be prepared to access the screening on our opening day September 3rd prior to arrival

    Thank you for helping to keep our campus community safe and we look forward to seeing you on Thursday!
