All George Mason University students, faculty, staff and visitors are required to help ensure a safe return to campus by participating daily in the university’s Mason COVID Health Check™. Beginning Aug. 17, all visitors to campus, including students, faculty, staff, parents and friends, are required to show proof that they have received clearance through the Mason COVID Health Check™ to be on campus.
The Mason COVID Health Check™ is a screening tool in which participants answer a short series of simple questions relating to their health and any exposure they may have had to coronavirus. The tool is key to helping Mason avoid coronavirus outbreaks by allowing for early identification of individuals who may have been exposed to coronavirus or are beginning to exhibit symptoms. These individuals can then be quarantined to avoid exposing others on campus to the virus.
