Screening

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.

Register: Mediterranean Wellness

Process:

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.

Questions:

Testing

Question: Are employees and students required to get a COVID-19 test?
Answer: Employees are not required to get COVID-19 testing, and students who are coming to campus are expected to produce a negative test result within two weeks of their return to campus. Most students who’ve returned for on-campus classes, residence hall students and University athletes have been COVID-19 tested, with ongoing surveillance testing focused primarily on residential and athletic students.


Question: How can students acquire a test?
Answer: Carlow is offering students free rapid testing on campus (view the complete schedule). Walk-ins may be available during scheduled days/times, but there may be a wait. Testing is being conducted on the third floor of Frances Warde Hall. Students are allowed one test through Carlow only when they must return to campus.


Question: I’m a student and can’t make it to campus on the scheduled days/times.
Answer: Students do not have to be tested at Carlow and can visit Pennsylvania Covid-19 Viral Testing to find testing locations. Students are asked to email results to hcs@carlow.edu.

Vaccination

Question: Is Carlow University vaccinating employees and students?
Answer: In collaboration with our partner Integrated Health 21, students and faculty (in Pennsylvania’s 1A phase) who interface with health care systems have received vaccinations. As vaccines become readily available and the state begins vaccinating people in the 1B phase, Carlow will inform its internal stakeholders appropriately. 


Question: If I received my first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at another site, can I receive my second dose of the vaccine at Carlow? 
Answer: No. You must return to the provider who offered you the first dose.
