Duke staff and faculty must report if they have any COVID-19 symptoms like a fever, cough or shortness of breath each day before working on campus.

Duke staff, faculty and some contractors who arrive for work each day on campus are required to complete a COVID-19 symptom-monitoring form accessible through a secure online survey

The confidential form requires community members to provide their temperature and report COVID-19 symptoms such as cough, sore throat, runny nose, difficulty breathing and GI symptoms. Depending on symptoms reported, the system provides a message that either clears you for work or tells you to stay home and call the Duke Health COVID-19 Hotline, 919-385-0429, option 1.

To take the survey, staff, faculty and contractors will receive frequent emails with a link to the survey from Duke’s Employee Occupational Health & Wellness (EOHW) or their school, department or unit in the days leading up the return to the workplace. Bookmark the link for daily use or save one of the emails from EOHW for easy access. 

Duke employees will need to fill out a symptom monitoring form each day they work on campus.Duke employees will soon be able to securely access the survey through a mobile app that is in development.

“We’re creating this system to protect everyone who steps foot on campus,” said Matt Case, chief resident physician for the Department of Family and Community Medicine’s Division of Occupational and Environmental Medicine. “You can save lives by monitoring your symptoms.”
