Before going to lab you must do this daily survey:
Here is information from UCR COVID19 Support email August 3 2020: Employees working remotely part of the time are required to complete the survey only on all days when they will be working in campus facilities. Please complete this task before coming to work. The survey should take about 30 seconds to complete. More information about this process is at https://ehs.ucr.edu/coronavirus/symptoms-tool.
CERTIFICATE OF CLEARANCE - If the survey provides you with clearance to work, you will receive a certificate via email. - This certificate expires at 4:00 AM the day after the survey is taken.
ADDITIONAL GUIDANCE - If you are unable to complete the survey before coming to work, please make arrangements with your supervisor to complete the survey immediately upon your arrival. - If you have general questions about your symptoms or COVID-19, please call your primary care physician. - If you have severe symptoms such as confusion, severe dehydration or worsening difficulty breathing, go to the ER immediately and/or dial 9-1-1. - If you are unsure if you should go to the ER, you can call your primary care physician to schedule an urgent Telehealth visit. What to do if you test positive for COVID-19
If you are approved for performing research on campus and you receive a positive COVID test result, please call UCR’s employee COVID-19 hotline (1-844-827-6827) to report your results to campus. If the employee reports an issue to the hotline or reports symptoms on the daily symptom survey, they will be alerted that they need to stay home until the COVID hotline can investigate the situation further.
From there, the COVID-19 hotline conducts an investigation to determine if the employee needs to self-quarantine for 14 days and if any others on campus were potentially exposed and need to self-quarantine. Supervisors should not be directing anyone to self-quarantine, only to report to the COVID-19 hotline. There are trained employees who make determinations based on CDC and Department of Public Health guidelines working there.
When can you return to work after testing positive for COVID-19?
UCR has set the standard that employees can only return to work if they provide a note from a medical provider. We do not require that employees provide a negative test result as this isn’t necessarily sufficient to prove they do not have COVID-19. Employees can get tested if they want and if their physician recommends it but we do not require employees to get tested. UCR's criteria for returning to work following a positive result can also be found at the bottom of the following page: https://ehs.ucr.edu/coronavirus/return. Go to the section titled "If you have been exposed or tested positive"
Can my supervisor tells people that I tested positive for COVID-19?
Per HIPAA regulations, your direct supervisor is not allowed to inform anyone about your positive test result, as this information is considered protected (confidential) medical information.
Who should I call if I have other general questions about COVID-19?
.Joining forces with amazing women across soil science, this year our group along with Prof. Angelia Seyfferth of Plant and Soil Sciences at University of Delaware, will host a networking event at ASA-CSSA-SSSA International Annual Conference in Tampa, FL. Below is more information on the event and our networks' action oriented goals.
