The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center has assembled an efficient method for faculty, staff and nurses to check and report temperatures, as well as any symptoms, before reporting to a work shift.

On days you're reporting to work, every medical center employee will be required to visit to record their temperature, check whether they have symptoms and submit the results.

Employees currently working from home are encouraged to record temperatures, but they're not required.

Record your daily temperature here:

Staff entering medical center facilities will need to pass through a checkpoint and show that they've logged their temperature and symptoms and that their temperature is below 100° F.

  • If you have a fever of 100° F or higher, you must follow regular ill time call-off procedures with your manager
  • If you don't have a thermometer at home, staff screeners at the checkpoints can measure your temperature.
  • Tips for using the COVID-19 Employee Health Monitoring Tool
  • NOTE: Employees at Ackerman locations can use the Jameson Crane screening checkpoint if they can't take their temperature at home
