Additional screeners needed as more people return to campus

Members of the COVID-19 Return-To-Campus Screening Committee and I want to personally thank everyone who has stepped up to help with screening thousands of employees, visitors and patients entering our numerous campus locations.

Your willingness to participate in this important new precaution has allowed our institution to remain a safe and healthy environment. Your commitment and time are much appreciated.

We anticipate screening to continue through the end of the year as more faculty, staff and students return to campus over the next several weeks and months.

New temperature self-screening stations are being placed throughout our campus locations, but there is still a need for people to help screen in some areas.

We need your help in manning screening locations as the number of screening stations continues to increase with more and more people entering campus locations.

  • All screeners will be provided with personal protective equipment (PPE) and will receive orientation via this Screening Training Video.
  • There is no direct contact involved.
  • Screeners work four-hour shifts and use touch-free thermometers to confirm normal temperatures.
  • All screening stations are indoors at the locations below. View the Screening Locations Map for reference.

STATION #1:  Long School of Medicine
STATION #2:  South Texas Research Facility (STRF) – Greehey North Campus
STATION #3:  School of Dentistry, Rear Entry – Lot 7 (Long Campus)
STATION #4:  School of Dentistry, Main Entry – (Long Campus)
STATION #5:  Briscoe Library, Main Lobby
STATION #6:  PARC Building (Wurzbach Rd/Fredericksburg Rd)
STATION #7:  McDermott Clinical Science Building – Greehey Campus

We encourage anyone who can help, regardless if you are working on campus or working from home, to take a few shifts to screen at any of the locations listed above.

Please get your supervisor’s approval if needed and sign up for a shift at https://signup.com/go/CRGjkhh.

Thank you again for your help during these extraordinary times.

Sincerely,

The COVID-19 Return to Campus Workgroup | Screening Committee
