All faculty, staff, trainees, vendors and contractors must undergo a daily screening process to enter the Washington University Medical Campus.
New screening tool now in use
All WashU Med employees and students should complete their daily screening using the new online WashU COVID-19 Screening Tool instead of the BJC HealthCare screening app.
Vendors and contractors: Please use the BJC HealthCare screening app and check in with your Washington University contact to review the latest visitor guidelines.
The screening process
1. Fill out your online assessment DAILY, before you arrive on campus.
- Visit screening.wustl.edu
- Log in with your WUSTL Key
- Authenticate using WashU Two-Factor Authentication (2FA).
- If you like, add a bookmark to the screening tool on your phone.
Complete the screening no earlier than two hours prior to your arrival to work.
In the screening tool, you will be asked about common COVID-19 symptoms and recent exposure. You will be prompted to record your temperature. If you do not have a thermometer, your temperature will be taken at a screening station on campus.
Based on your responses, you will receive the following guidelines:
- Green: Report to a screening station, and then report to work as usual
- Yellow: Report to a screening station to complete the screening process
- Red: You may not report to work
- Contact your supervisor
- Notify WashU Occupational Health by calling the COVID-19 hotline at 314-362-5056.
Once you click Submit, do not close this screen. You will need to show this screen when you report to a screening station.
- Green: You will receive an email notification with your generated “COVID Pass.”
- Yellow: You will receive an email notification instructing you to proceed to a screening station to complete your screening.
- Red: Your direct supervisor will be notified that you will not be able to report to work. If you self-report that you have been exposed to a household or close family member/intimate partner who has tested positive or is suspected of having COVID-19 in the past 14 days, your direct supervisor will be notified that you have a potential exposure and that they should expect to receive follow up information from occupational health. Supervisors do not need to take any action based on these emails and should keep the information confidential.
2. Present yourself at a campus screening station.
Screening stations are positioned at major entry points. Not all screening stations are open 24 hours. If you don’t encounter a screening station at your normal entry location, please use another entrance where a screening station is in operation.
What happens at screening stations
You may be asked some questions, and your temperature may be taken, based on your online screening result. If you clear screening, you will be given a color-coded sticker to wear on your badge indicating that you may access the Washington University Medical Campus for a 24-hour period, beginning at 6 a.m. each day.
3. Put your screening sticker on your badge. You’re done!
For infection control, please remove the screening sticker at the end of each day. Wipe your badge daily with disinfectant.
What to do if you fail your daily screening
If you do not meet screening criteria or have a temperature at or above 100 degrees,
- Go home
- Contact Occupational Health at 314-362-5056
- Staff: Also follow your normal call-in procedures
What to expect when you arrive on campus
We will be working hard to ensure there are enough staff to screen when employees are arriving to work. However:
- Please expect a line when arriving for your shift, until we work out the optimal staffing and process
- Should there be lines, please know tardiness will be excused
- While in line, please practice social distancing
- Please be patient as we work through this together
