Dear SUNY Poly Utica Campus Employees:
 
As we advance SUNY Poly’s “restart” efforts resulting from the impacts of COVID-19, we have been rolling out a new web application, which aims to help us uphold the health and safety of our community.
 
This web app will be required to be used every day by anyone who seeks to be on campus. By providing your information and indicating you do not currently present with potential COVID-19 symptoms, you will be able to complete your work on campus in accordance with current guidelines, such as wearing a face covering and social distancing. Indicating you do have symptoms will help you to know you must remain off-site and seek proper medical care. 
 
We believe taking a moment to complete the form each day can help limit the potential spread of COVID-19 through increased awareness and connection to resources. The web app can be reached by logging into: sunypoly.edu/covid-screener. We encourage you to save this address or bookmark it on your web browser so that you can easily fill it out each day before coming to campus. 
 
To use the Health Screening web app:

  • Login with your SitNet ID and corresponding password (ID/password for Banner). 
  • Fill out the form with your first and last name, answer yes/no to the questions related to potential symptoms, indicate your affiliation with SUNY Poly (faculty/staff or student), fill out the CAPTCHA box, and click submit. 
  • The web app will indicate successful submission of your daily COVID-19 screening, and you will also receive an e-mail confirmation, which you are required to forward to your supervisor.

If you answer “yes” to having any of the symptoms associated with COVID-19, or that you or someone you have been in close contact has COVID-19, you will be notified that you may present a risk to the campus community and should not come to campus; you will be asked to contact your healthcare provider for assessment and testing. You will also be asked to inform your supervisor that you are not coming to work per normal call in procedures. If your responses do not indicate a risk, you may proceed on-site. The Office of Human Resources will also receive a copy of each employee’s notification when there is a “yes” response to the questions, and a representative will follow up with the employee who may present a COVID-19 risk. Information related to illnesses is confidential, and supervisors or co-workers will not be informed of a specific employee’s health status.  
 
In addition to the daily screening, all employees are required to complete a brief COVID-19 training prior to returning to campus: https://forms.gle/swP8G4bcrhkYVE1z8. Please complete this training before the next time you come to campus.
 
Thank you for taking the time to complete the COVID-19 training and to fill out the Health Screening form each day. Your participation and cooperation in these processes will help us support the health and safety of everyone in our community.
 
Sincerely,
 
Sean Clive
Director of Environmental Health and Safety - Utica Campus
 
Rhonda Haines
Vice President of Human Resources
