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).


New Form Added to MTU Flex Portal

Data is one of the key tools Michigan Tech is using to try to find COVID-19 cases quickly, stop the spread, and keep the campus community and our local community safe. We need your help in order to optimize our success. While it is essential that we know when you are symptomatic or have a positive COVID-19 test, data that you are not exhibiting symptoms or have had a negative COVID-19 test is also important as we are actively monitoring our campus health conditions. We are now pleased to announce that in the ongoing efforts to keep our community as safe and informed as possible in the midst of the current global coronavirus pandemic, Michigan Tech is making it even easier for employees to add to the information being amassed to fight COVID-19 on campus.


MTU Flex: The Daily Symptom Monitoring Form

by University Marketing and Communications

Employees coming to campus during Step Two of Michigan Tech’s Return to Campus Plan must self-monitor for symptoms using the COVID-19 Daily Symptom Monitoring Form. It’s one of three things everyone must do in order to resume working on campus — along with getting your supervisor’s approval and completing your assigned COVID-19 training.

How it Works

During Step Two, your HuskyCard tap access turns off at midnight each night. Submitting the Daily Symptom Monitoring Form turns it back on for the day. If you don’t have a computer or smartphone, you can call Public Safety and Police Services at 906-487-2216 before coming to campus, and dispatch will assist in submitting the form on your behalf.

Where to Find It

The COVID-19 Daily Symptom Monitoring Form is located on the MTU Flex Portal. That’s also where you’ll find any future forms related to the University’s fall 2020 return to campus.

MTU Flex is a resource for all of us, so students, employees and families can get the latest details on academic experiences, campus experiences and campus operations. Check back often, as new info is still being added. And, if you have questions, email them to mtuflex@mtu.edu.
