COVID-19 Return to Campus Tools

Visit coronavirus.miami.edu for the latest information about the University's response to the COVID-19 pandemic.


Technologies to Keep You Safe

The University of Miami has developed new technologies that enable our students, faculty, and staff to safely return to our campuses. To protect the public health of the University, all members of the community are required to adhere to safety standards established for the campuses and the workplace.

Attestation Form


An online health screening is required for all faculty and staff before returning to campus.

To begin this process, the manager is responsible for identifying the employee and expected return date at least three calendar days prior to the employee's return date.

If you are identified by your manager to return to campus, you will receive a link to the attestation form via email, which will need to be completed prior to returning to campus for the first time, as well as after any leave of absence or extended absence from campus.

MANAGER - IDENTIFY AN EMPLOYEE RETURNING TO CAMPUS

Daily Symptom Checker


Students, faculty, and staff who are on campus are required to use a daily symptom checker and respond appropriately to the guidance it provides. (Note: Students are required to test negative for COVID-19 before returning to campus and before accessing the daily symptom checker. For details, please review information for students on the Coronavirus website.)

The daily symptom checker takes no more than two minutes to complete and is available online (click here) or via the UMiami mobile app (available for download from Google Play (Android) or the App Store (iPhone/iOS)).

Contact Tracing


Students who are experiencing COVID-19-related symptoms, or believe they have been exposed to the virus, are not to come to campus and should call the University's COVID-19 hotline at 305-243-ONE-U (6638) and visit the Student Health Service website for additional COVID-19 information. Faculty and staff should call the University's COVID-19 hotline at 305-243-ONE-U (6638) or fill out the Employee COVID-19 screening form.

If needed, contact tracing will be initiated to identify University of Miami individuals who may have come into contact with an infected person. Contact tracing will be conducted by the University's UTRACE team for any confirmed cases, and COVID-19-positive individuals will be required to self-isolate. Click here for contact tracing FAQs.


Location Densities

Capacities at various on campus locations have been reduced to accommodate the need for physical distancing. Before visiting popular locations on the Coral Gables campus, we ask that all students, faculty, and staff review the real-time density monitor. At a glance, the density monitor will let you know if there is capacity at a particular location: green means there's lots of space, yellow means it's filling up, and red means it's at capacity, so please come back later. It is important that we all do our part to keep the U safe.

    What do I need to know about the daily symptom checker tool?

    All students who are on campus are required to use a daily symptom checker and respond appropriately to the guidance it provides.

    The daily symptom checker is available online (linked below), as well as via the UMiami mobile app, available for download from Google Play (Android) or the App Store (iPhone/iOS).

    Upon completion of the daily symptom checker, you will receive a confirmation message on screen and via email. Faculty may require students to display the "Good to Go" clearance message before entering the classroom. The "Good to Go" clearance message is required to enter residential dining facilities and other facilities on campus. If a residential student is not cleared, meal delivery can be arranged by contacting the respective residential area's reception desk (note: this does not apply to residential students in quarantine or isolation, as meal arrangements for these students are coordinated through other means).

    Students who report symptoms via the daily symptom checker are expected to contact Student Health Service.

  • Attestation Form

    What do I need to know about the return to campus attestation form?

    Before returning to campus, faculty will be required to complete an online attestation form via a tool developed by the University to screen for COVID-19 symptoms. If you are identified by your manager to return to campus, you will receive a link to the attestation form via email, which will need to be completed prior to returning to campus for the first time, as well as after any leave of absence or extended absence from campus. You will need your employee ID and a phone number where you can be readily reached for any follow-up details that may be needed.

    You will be asked to answer questions about current symptoms, potential exposure, and other risk factors to provide guidance on actions to take related to your health status at the time. You must follow the guidance provided at the end of this attestation form. (Note: This is a replacement of the current COVID-19 return to work assessment tool.)


    What are the criteria for returning to work on campus?

    Overall, all employees who will be returning to campus will need to complete a return to campus attestation form via the University's screening tool. Managers must identify the employee and the return date at least three calendar days prior to the employee's return date. The attestation form will be automatically emailed to the identified employee (employees cannot assign this to themselves).

    Your manager, dean, or executive leader will let you know if you will need to return to campus/your work location, as well as when you should plan to return. If an employee is scheduled to return to campus, the employee must complete the return to campus attestation form to receive guidance based on responses to the attestation form.

    If you can continue to complete your job functions from home, there is no plan for you to return at this time.

    Employees who are deemed to be at high risk for COVID-19 will receive guidance from the attestation tool on a course of action. The employee should contact their manager, dean, or executive leader to indicate that guidance.

Manager

  • Initiating the Return to Campus Attestation Form

    What steps should I follow as a manager of someone who may be returning to campus?

    As a manager of an employee who is returning to campus, you must identify all returning/returned employees*. Please be aware that this process needs to be done at least three calendar days prior to the employee's return date. If you select a future return date, the employee will receive the attestation form via email three days before the date you selected. (For those employees who have already been working on campus and have not yet completed the online clearance process, please enter the employee's information in the system immediately, and ensure they complete the attestation form.)

    IDENTIFY AN EMPLOYEE RETURNING TO CAMPUS

    Once you have entered the employee's information, the employee will receive an attestation form via email that they will need to complete within 24 hours of receipt. This form will determine the employee's eligibility to return to campus and the system will send them and you (as their manager) an email confirmation of their eligibility or next steps. If the attestation status is "Cleared" they can return to campus, and the employee may then pick up their "safe return kit."

    A manager may assign a proxy to enter the employee's return information at least three calendar days prior to the employee's return date.

    *Note: Upon entering an employee's name in the online form the first time, you may notice there is a slight delay in the drop-down menu. This is due to the employee data rendering for the first time in the background. Please type the employee's name and allow a few moments for the drop-down content to load.

  • Accessing the Dashboard

    How can I access the attestation form and daily symptom checker dashboard?

    To access the attestation form and daily symptom checker dashboard for managers, visit umiamicx.co1.qualtrics.com. Once logged in, you will see the dashboard specific to you based on your role, (e.g., HR partner, employee health, or manager).

    For more information, including a tutorial video on the attestation form process and a tip sheet on how to access the daily symptom checker dashboard, please visit the MyHR COVID-19 Manager Resources page.

    ACCESS THE DASHBOARD FOR MANAGERS


    When is a ticket generated?

    A ticket is generated when the employee does not complete the attestation form within 24 hours of receiving the email message to complete it. If this occurs, managers should follow up with the employee to complete the attestation form prior to coming to campus.


    Why do I still have an open ticket, if my employee took the attestation form and cleared?

    You may see a ticket of a cleared employee if they were entered more than once in the attestation form system by multiple people. For example, if a manager and a proxy both enter the employee into the system, two tickets will be generated. When the employee completes the attestation form and is cleared, only one of the two tickets will close.


    How do I delete the duplicate to clear the ticket and stop the system from sending messages that it is still open?

    • On the Dashboard's Tickets - Manager tab click on the word "link" located on the far right of the ticket number for the employee; this will take you to the ticket detail, where it displays the status on the top right. Click on the drop-down menu and select Close. This will remove the ticket from the Open status. (Note: Only the employee's manager can do this correction.)

    An Enhancement to the Return to Work Tool:

    The current online return to work tool that all UHealth employees and MSOM clinical faculty must complete before returning to campus is transitioning to a new online tool. The new Qualtrics tool, the attestation form, allows managers to continue to initiate a clearance for UHealth employees and MSOM clinical faculty they wish to return to on-site work.

    To begin this process, the manager identifies the employee and expected return date at least three calendar days in advance. Click here for a tutorial video for managers on the attestation process and accessing the dashboard.

    Employees identified by their manager to return on-site will receive an email with a link to the attestation form, which will need to be completed before returning on-site for the first time, as well as after any leave of absence or extended absence from on-site work.

    You may contact your Human Resources Partner with any questions, and more information is available on UMed Insider.
