COVID-19 Self-Screening Guidance

The foundational priority of the University is to protect the health, safety and welfare of the Osprey community, including all faculty, staff, students, vendors and visitors. As such, the university has developed self-assessment tools to provide personal guidance in determining whether it would pose a health risk to you or others if you were to return to campus (including UNF owned/affiliated facilities such as MOCA).


The University expects all faculty, staff, and students to utilize the self-assessment tools daily to determine if they should report to campus, as health and safety is a shared responsibility of all Osprey community constituents. The self-screening can be accessed through the Safe Ospreys App as well as online via the Daily Self-Screening Form . 


For those unable to access the Safe-Ospreys mobile app or the web-based screening tools, this Self-Screening reference document can be used to complete a daily-self-screening.


These tools should not be used to diagnose any individual with symptoms of COVID-19 or to serve as a substitute for medical advice. Specific medical data will not be collected or stored.


Some example questions can be found below along with detailed guidance for next steps.
