Daily Symptom Self-Screening for Students, Faculty and Staff

Daily Symptom Self-Screening Heading

As per the Student Code for Healthy Living and Learning and the Ramapo College Employee Code for a Safe Work Environment, it is your personal responsibility to conduct a daily symptom self-screening as a way for you to take care of yourself and others. Please review this checklist every day before coming to campus or leaving your residence room. Do not submit this form to the College.

If you have any of the below symptoms or conditions, STAY HOME and contact your medical provider. For students, during business hours (Monday – Friday 8:30-4:30pm) report a COVID-19 illness or suspected illness to Health Services at 201-684-7536 or After business hours, please call Public Safety at 201-684-6666 who will notify the on-call Health Services staff. For faculty and staff, report a COVID-19 illness or suspected illness to Jill Brown, Associate Director of Human Resources, or 201-684-7507. If the symptoms you experience are part of a chronic medical condition you are aware of and have been monitoring (e.g., seasonal allergies you routinely experience, nausea as a side effect from a medication), there is no need to stay home.

Student, faculty and staff with questions about what to do if they feel sick should access the COVID-19 FAQ page. The CDC maintains a current list of COVID-19 symptoms, which are also noted below (does not include all possible symptoms):

Ask yourself, do I have………

  • Fever (Above 100.4 F) or Chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of Breath or Difficulty Breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or Body Aches
  • Headache
  • New Loss of Taste or Smell
  • Sore Throat
  • Congestion or Runny Nose
  • Nausea or Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Pale, Grey, or Blue-colored Skin, Lips, or Nail Beds, depending on skin tone

Do not come to campus if……

  • You are positive for COVID-19 or have symptoms consistent with COVID-19;
  • You are unvaccinated or vaccinated with no booster and have been a close contact with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 in the past 14 days;
  • You have been directed to self-isolate or self-quarantine by a medical professional or local public health official

Please seek immediate, emergency medical attention (call 911) if you are experiencing any CDC defined emergency warning signs such as trouble breathing, persistent pain or pressure in the chest, new confusion, inability to wake or stay awake, or pale, grey, or blue-colored skin, lips, or nail beds, depending on skin tone. This is not a list of all possible symptoms. You should contact your medical provider for any symptoms that are concerning to you.

As a reminder, the travel registry is for unvaccinated students and employees who are traveling to international or domestic locations. The travel registry is also for vaccinated students and employees traveling internationally. All who engage in cruise ship travel must complete the registry. Register your travel with the College.

* Close Contact: A close contact is defined as someone who was within 6 feet of an infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period starting from 2 days before illness onset (or, for asymptomatic patients, 2 days prior to test specimen collection) until the time the patient is isolated. As per the local health department, the correct and consistent use of a proper face covering indoors may mean that a person is not considered a close contact to a case (Sources: CDC & Northwest Region Bergen Health Commission).
