Using Athens-State Healthcheck will help us all return to campus safely.
All students, faculty, and staff must complete Athens-State Healthcheck, a web-based COVID-19 assessment tool that allows users to report COVID-19 symptoms and exposure history.
Athens-State Healthcheck consists of a set of questions that measures symptoms and exposure to COVID-19. An initial set-up survey is performed the first time you access Healthcheck. After that, you are encouraged to complete Athens-State Healthcheck daily, but we require it to be completed at least every three days. (Employees who enter campus on a daily basis must complete it daily, as a “pass” is only valid for one business day.) You will automatically get email and/or text reminders from the Athens-State Healthcheck tool. However, if you ever develop new symptoms, don’t wait for a reminder – report them immediately. You can access Athens-State Healthcheck through the password-protected system on a phone, tablet, or computer by clicking the button below the link to enter the system.
Through Athens-State Healthcheck, you report whether or not you have had symptoms or exposure to anyone who has recently tested positive for COVID-19. Based on your response, Athens-State Healthcheck will assign you one of three categories: Least Risk, May be at Risk, or Greater Risk - each with its own instructions on how to proceed to campus or work. Regardless of how you answer, a secure compliance report will be sent to the Athens State data manager for COVID-19.
Athens-State Passport: Your "Pass" to Campus
Athens-State Passport is being used to help facilitate access to campus by faculty, staff, and students. After completing the Athens-State Healthcheck, you will be provided a "pass" within the Athens-State Passport tool. This "pass" is what should be shown at the entry checkpoint to gain access to campus. Athens-State Passport issues campus clearance based on a proprietary COVID-19 risk algorithm. Each user is assigned a unique passport number indicating their status of "Clear" or "Not Clear" for campus entry.
Each pass provided is only valid for one business day; if you work or learn on campus daily, you must complete the Athens-State Healthcheck and receive a new pass each day. Please see below for helpful frequently asked questions.
