MTU Flex: Self-monitoring—What to Do if You Forget

Editor’s Note: A previous post introduced the COVID-19 Daily Symptom Monitoring Form and explained how to use it to gain access to campus buildings. This post explains what to do if you forget to submit it.

Fast forward to fall. You wake up late. You have to skip your coffee to get out the door on time. When you arrive on campus, you realize you forgot to submit the COVID-19 Daily Symptom Monitoring Form—which means you’re locked out of your building.

If this happens, don’t worry. You can submit the form right here on campus, and your HuskyCard tap access will be restored quickly (usually within five minutes).

How to Get Access if You Forget

If you have a smartphone and Internet access, you can submit the form on your phone’s browser app. Or, you can submit the form by phone. Call Public Safety and Police Services at 906-487-2216 and ask dispatch to submit the form on your behalf. If you don’t have a cell phone, you can stop by Public Safety and speak to dispatch in person—it’s located in the Widmaier House on MacInnes Drive, just off US-41, west of Wadsworth Hall.

A little bit of preparation now can save time and stress later. Save Public Safety and Police Services’ phone number as a contact in your phone. And, make sure to bookmark the MTU Flex Portal in your phone’s browser app or save the bookmark as an icon on your phone’s home screen. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) offer helpful instructions on how to do this, depending on your phone model:
