Daily Student Health Assessment

Students, here’s what you need to know before you come to campus.

The health and safety of our students, employees, and communities is our highest priority and you must do your part by following these important guidelines.

First, every day before coming to campus you must ask yourself the following questions to determine if you are approved to come to campus.

Falsifying your answers or coming to campus when not approved will result in disciplinary actions as outlined in the KCTCS Code of Student Conduct.

  1. Have you had any of the CDC-recognized COVID-19 symptoms since the last time you were on campus?
    a) Cough
    b) Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
    c) Fever
    d) Chills
    e) Muscle Pain
    f) Sore Throat
    g) New loss of taste or smell
    h) Headache
    i) Congestion or runny nose
    j) Nausea or vomiting

    - If YES, go to question 2.

  2. Are these symptoms due to an existing health condition (i.e. Allergies, Asthma, COPD, Migraines, etc.)?

    - If NO, go to question 4.

  4. Do you have a temperature greater than 100.4F?

  5. Have you been in close contact with anyone exhibiting sign or symptoms of fever, persistent cough or shortness of breath consistent with COVID-19 who has not been tested or is still awaiting testing?

    - If YES, go to question 6.
    - If NO, you are APPROVED to come to campus.

  6. Do you work or volunteer at a healthcare facility, long-term care facility, nursing home or other residential/group home facility, a jail, or a prison?

    - If YES, you are APPROVED to come to campus.
