As a reminder, students, faculty and staff will be expected to complete a brief symptom monitoring form each day prior to arriving on campus or attending in-person activities on campus. 

In this form, you need to fill out a “supervisor email”. For students, postdocs, and other researchers, please use your PI’s email address. 

Please note: the university requires you to fill out this form each day that you go to campus. The link above lets you log in with your NetID. 

You are welcome to set up a virtual meeting using the appointment link above or by contacting staff members via email. We are happy to connect with you via Zoom or Microsoft Teams.
