What to expect upon arriving at Campus: Daily and Pre-Visit Health Screening –

The Chancellor announced that effective August 26, 2020, students, faculty, staff and visitors planning to come to a CUNY campus or office for any reason or length of time, will be required to use the Everbridge App to take a Wellness check Survey prior to entering a campus or building.

Everbridge Mobile App
The quick survey involves five short questions and is accessible through Everbridge’s health screening app. Please use this Instructional Guide for accessing and using the app. Visitors should use the Visitors’ Guide for instructions. Based on the answers provided, you will receive a confirmation on your phone or email that clears you to enter the college or office. Those not cleared to enter will be given additional guidance on what they should do next. Please also review these FAQs if you have a question.

When arriving on campus, the Public Safety team will coordinate the health screening stations at designated entry points.  Everyone must show your Everbridge approval with a timestamped confirmation.  If the survey has not been completed beforehand, it will be administered at the entrance by completing a temperature check utilizing a contactless thermometer and answering screening questions.  If you have a temperature or answer “Yes” to any question, you will be advised to return home.

Safety ‘Musts’

It is always mandatory for every person to wear a mask while on campus. Please consult the University Guidance on Cloth Face Coverings and additional guidance from the CDC. CUNY continues to make having a sufficient supply of masks and face coverings a top priority. To date, we have procured more than 145,000 masks for distribution to campuses and offices.

Social distancing and hand washing are as important as ever to stopping the spread of the coronavirus. Stay Well, Take it seriously. Always maintain a physical distance of at least six feet on campus and when gathering with individuals outside the classrooms and other areas. Please remember to wash your hands regularly with soap and water for 20 seconds; use alcohol-based hand sanitizer when soap and water are unavailable.

Video Training for Employees

All employees are required to complete the NYS COVID-19 Response – Return to Work Training before returning on-site. The 12-minute training video, which is housed on Blackboard, provides valuable information about the mandatory Daily Staff Screening Program; who should be tested, and where to get a test; daily work requirements such as social distancing, cleaning/sanitizing, elevator protocol, face coverings and personal hygiene; and mental health information and resources.
