Dear UCI Students:
The wellbeing of our students is UCI’s number one priority, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. UCI has made daily COVID-19 symptom check screening mandatory for students and employees, effective Monday, August 24, 2020.
This decision is based on Center for Disease Controls (CDC), State of California, County of Orange, University of California Office of the President (UCOP), and UCI directives, guidelines, and best practices. Mandatory daily symptom check screenings have been officially authorized by Chancellor Gillman in his Executive Directive dated August 24, 2020 entitled Daily Symptom Check.
Daily symptom check for UCI students
Over the next few weeks, students will begin to receive the Living Well Daily Symptom Tracker daily email and will be required to complete it on a daily basis, regardless of your plans to be on campus.
The Symptom Tracker is intended to remind students and employees to monitor their symptoms and those of anyone in their household in order to continue keeping UCI well and healthy.
The Living Well Daily Symptom Tracker application sends an email to all students on a daily basis. Students may choose, at their option, to respond using either the Now® Mobile application or as a reply to the daily email.
For instructions and information on the Living Well Daily Symptom Tracker, please visit:
Living Well Daily Symptom Check Application Instructions.
Students who do not comply with this directive may be subject to disciplinary action.
How often should a student complete the daily symptom check?
All student workers are expected to use the Working Well™ Daily Symptom Check. For information on the Working Well™ Daily Symptom Check, please visit:
Students Living on Campus or Visiting the Campus
Prior to arriving on campus, all students are required to use the Living Well Daily Symptom Check for 14 days prior to their arrival on campus and every day while they are on campus. This includes weekends and breaks.
Students Living Off Campus
Students living off-campus are required to use the Living Well Daily Symptom Check once they begin receiving the daily emails.
Please direct all questions to UCI’s COVID Response Center at firstname.lastname@example.org or 949.824.9918.
Thank you for helping the UCI community work well and live well.
