What happens once I complete the questionnaire?

Upon completion and submission of the questionnaire, you will receive an email certificate of “Cleared to enter UCSC facilities” or “Not Cleared to enter UCSC facilities.” This notice will be sent to your email account, to the person that you are visiting, as applicable, and to the Symptom Check database. The notice will not provide symptom information.

When visiting a facility, you must display the “Cleared to enter UCSC facilities” certification prior to entering the facility.

For contact tracing purposes, questionnaire responses will be stored in a private and secure database and purged after 60 days.

My Visitor Symptom Check Questionnaire indicates that I am “Not Cleared,” what shall I do?

  1. Notify the UC Santa Cruz person that you are visiting or notify the contact where you were volunteering, as applicable, that you are unable to enter UCSC facilities because you have received the certification that states “Not Cleared to enter UCSC facilities” from the Visitor Symptom Check Questionnaire.
  2. Cancel your visit. Do not enter UCSC facilities until you have consulted with a medical professional.
  3. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention COVID-19 procedure indicates that you should contact your healthcare provider, or, if symptoms warrant, go to your local emergency department.

What if I don’t have access to a computer, internet, or smartphone at home?

We will have printed copies of the UCSC Visitor COVID-19 Symptom Check Questionnaire at the building entrance.

Note: Campus visitors are required to be fully vaccinated and wear a mask in the building.
