EMU To Install Check-In Stations On Campus Buildings This Fall To Prevent The Spread Of COVID-19

Aug 10, 2020

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, Eastern Michigan University will have check-in stations at all their buildings that will be open this fall.  

Anyone who needs to enter a building on campus will be required to complete a daily health screening form online using their phone.  Responses that generate a green light result must be shown to the student attendant to be granted access to the building.  A red light result denies access to the building.  Julie Vogl is a project coordinator with Engage @ EMU and is helping with the project.

Julie Vogl: If somebody doesn’t have a phone, there will be paper forms available, and then the students checking them in will give them a stamp.

For now, check-in stations will be available between 8 am and 5 pm Monday through Thursday, when in-person classes begin this fall.  University employees who need access to the buildings during the rest of the week, after hours or weekends, will submit health screening forms to their supervisors to be granted access.
