How Employees Safely Return to Campus


As Arkansas Tech University prepares for the return of employees to campus, please allow us to share some important safety information as well as procedural changes for the 2020-21 academic year.



FOLLOW Employee Daily Health Screening Procedures

The questionnaire will ask yes/no questions. After completion of the health screening you will receive an email which gives you clearance to come to work or asking you to stay home and contact your supervisor and the Health and Wellness Center for further direction. Your supervisor will also receive an email confirming that you have completed the screening and whether or not you are cleared for work.

Checking Your Temperature


One of the questions on the health screening requires a temperature check. All employees are encouraged to have a thermometer at home. A forehead or temporal are the easiest to use and are readily available. If you do not have access to a thermometer at home, there will be several locations on campus available to you for temperature checks.

What To Do If You Answer "Yes" on the Questionnaire

Again, if you answer yes to any of the questions on the health screening, stay home and do not come to campus. Notify your supervisor and the ATU Health and Wellness Center at 479-968-0329 both as soon as possible to get further instructions.

For Supervisors

Supervisors of departments will be responsible for making sure employee health screenings are done by employees each day. Each employee coming to campus will be required to do a screening each workday prior to starting work. In the event an employee does not have internet access to do the screening at home, there will be certain locations in each department where employees may do the screening. This is not the preferred method and we encourage everyone to work on having home access to OneTech to do the screening if possible.

Keeping Campus Safe 

This won’t always be easy. We will need to be patient as this will be a constantly changing process and we are still getting used to these changes and transitions. We need to continuously remind ourselves of the importance of following social distancing guidelines and what the repercussions could be if we don’t. Staying informed with current recommendations will be one of the most important things we can do.

It is going to take each and every one of us to keep our campus safe and healthy. If you have any questions, concerns, or need more information, don’t hesitate to call the ATU Health and Wellness Center at 479-968-0329. We encourage you to be engaged and be involved in the well-being of your campus community.
