Question: What type of screening is taking place on campus?

Answer: On November 25, 2020, the University transitioned to a self-screening model for all faculty, staff and students.

Self-screening is one of our strongest defenses against COVID-19 contraction and spread.

All faculty, staff and students are required to create an account on Mediterranean Wellness, a self-screening web-based application, and complete the COVID-19 self-checker tool on a daily basis.


FACULTY AND STAFF: Register at Mediterranean Wellness.

STUDENTS: Register at Mediterranean Wellness.


To participate appropriately, please take the following steps:

  • From the home screen, choose the “COVID-19 Self-Checker” bar, and “Take Test” drop down.
  • You will need to have a basic thermometer to take your current temperature and to respond to a short series of questions about symptoms, known exposures and travel.
  • Once complete, a GREEN proceed to campus, a YELLOW use caution, or RED do not come to campus message will be visible on your screen.
  • You will receive a reminder daily to complete the screen via email. Please check your junk mail if you have not received a reminder and know you have not completed the screen.
  • When coming to campus, wear a mask, social distance, wash your hands frequently and clean common surfaces before and after use.
  • Students will be able to show these screens to be admitted to class. Employees may be asked to show the screen when entering the workplace.
