Mason COVID Health✓™
Everyone planning to be on campus must complete the health check every day.
Who Must Complete Mason COVID Health✓™?
Mason COVID Health✓™ (Mason COVID Health Check™) is an online screening tool that must be completed daily (7 days a week) by students, faculty, staff, and contractors planning to visit campus in any capacity this fall.
Visitors and guests should complete this survey before visiting campus and may be required to complete Mason COVID Health✓™ for themselves and/or their dependents to access university facilities.
What is Mason COVID Health✓™?
The goal of symptom and exposure screening is to detect early signs of outbreaks to rapidly prevent transmission. Screening is an essential first step to case detection and outbreak management. The Mason COVID Health✓™ is important to guide the university through an awareness of potential COVID-19 cases within the Mason community. This allows for better-informed decisions regarding what outbreak mitigation strategies to implement.

If You Live with Someone with COVID-19
If you reside with or have constant contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19 or is symptomatic, you must follow a specific set of guidelines.
- Quarantine for the duration of the positive/sick individual’s 10-day post-test isolation period and/or 10 days after their symptoms appear.
- Follow a 14-day quarantine period for non-sick/non-symptomatic household members and close constant contacts. Members of the same residence or frequent close contacts might be required to quarantine for up to 24 days.
- If household members can effectively quarantine and avoid close contact, a 14-day quarantine period begins from the last date of close contact (for example, within 6 feet for more than 15 minutes).
All information captured by the Mason COVID Health✓™ is kept on a secure HIPAA compliant server. This information is encrypted and only available to a small team of screeners who are responsible for identifying potential clusters and responding to questions about potential/confirmed illnesses and outbreaks on campus.
The portal has been designed to adhere to Section 508 accessibility standards. For questions and/or requests for accomodation assistance, please contact the Office of Disability Services.
