Student Symptom Monitoring Survey Reminder

Date: August 12, 2020

From: Monroe Gorden, Jr., J.D., Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs

This is a reminder about completing the student symptom monitoring survey each day prior to coming to campus for any purpose, including class, work, research, internships, or other activities. If you are not familiar with the previously instituted symptom monitoring protocol for students (PDF), please see the information below outlining who needs to complete the survey, what happens after completing the survey, and why completing the survey is important. 

Who needs to complete the symptom monitoring survey? All UCLA students are required to complete the symptom monitoring survey each day they plan to come to campus for any purpose, including class, work, research, internships, or other activities. Staff and faculty are also required to complete a symptom monitoring survey prior to arriving to campus each day. The survey may be completed on a smartphone, tablet, or computer, and should take no more than five minutes.

  • Note for students living on campus: Additionally, students living in UCLA housing facilities listed on this webpage, are required to complete the symptom monitoring survey every day.
  • Note for UCLA Extension and UCLA pre-K-12 programs and schools: These procedures do not apply to students who are solely enrolled in UCLA Extension programs. In addition, these procedures do not apply to students in UCLA pre-K-12 programs and schools, who will follow symptom monitoring protocols specific to those units.

What happens after the survey is completed? Upon completion of the survey, the system will either generate a clearance certificate (download link available at the end of the survey) or direct students to call the Ashe Center COVID-19 Hotline at 310-206-6217 for instructions. Students are required to receive a clearance certificate from the survey before entering the UCLA campus grounds or any UCLA facilities (collectively referred to as UCLA Shared Spaces).

  • UCLA will keep the information about individuals’ symptoms confidential, according to the symptom monitoring privacy policy (PDF). The information will only be shared with designated UCLA officials so that they may carry out their required duties in response to the pandemic.
  • As an additional precaution, anyone entering certain UCLA facilities may be asked to present their clearance certificate and/or take a body temperature screening prior to entering. These facilities include but are not limited to the Ashe Center, UCLA hospitals and clinics, and the UCLA Guest House. Students who have a body temperature of 100.0° Fahrenheit (or 37.8° Celsius) or higher will not be allowed to enter and will be required to call the Ashe COVID-19 Hotline for further instructions.

Why is the completion of this survey important? Completing this survey is a safety measure that allows you and our on-campus community to continue to work in partnership in a safe environment as well as receive support should any symptom concerns arise.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we introduce these continued measures to further protect the health and safety of all members of our campus community during this very challenging time.

Sincerely,

Monroe Gorden, Jr., J.D.
Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs
