All Columbia affiliates (students, faculty, and staff) coming onto the campus for any purpose or who are living in residence halls or dorms, are required to complete the ReopenCU symptom self-check app every day before they enter campus premises. The purpose of this policy is to provide guidance to faculty and staff on next steps when they have obtained a red “pass” after completing the ReopenCU symptom self-check app.
There are three reasons an individual may receive a red pass:
- The individual is missing one of the required steps for working on campus—signing the compact, completing a SARS-CoV-2 (gateway) test, or completing the COVID-19 Safety training course.
- An error was made in completing the daily attestation.
- Based on the answers to the health attestation questions.
If an individual receives a red pass because they are missing one or more required steps for working on campus, they must complete the missing requirement(s) as soon as possible before returning to campus.
If an individual receives a red pass due to a mistake in responding to the questions, it must be corrected immediately, and then the individual can access campus once the green pass is obtained.
