COVID-19 Operational Plan

Daily Health Screening

All students, staff, and faculty should complete the Henderson Employee/Student Daily Health Screening prior to arriving to campus or leaving residence halls each day. If an individual responds "yes" to any question, he/she should not go to class or work. By coming to campus, students, staff, and faculty acknowledge that they do not have signs/symptoms of COVID-19. 

Step 1: Take your temperature.

Step 2: Ask yourself the following questions:

1. Are you experiencing any of the following symptoms that are not associated with a chronic or persistent health condition?

  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath/difficulty breathing
  • Fever greater than/equal to 100.4
  • Chills
  • Muscle pain- unexplained by exercise or activity
  • Sore throat
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Fatigue
  • Headache

2. Have you been tested for COVID-19 in the last 14 days?

3. Have you been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days?

Step 3: 

Students - If you answered YES to any of the questions, please do not come to campus/leave your residence hall room. Call the Student Health and Counseling Center immediately at (870) 230-5102 for further instructions.

If you answered NO to ALL questions in Step 2, you are clear to come to campus/leave your residence hall room.

Faculty/Staff - If you answered YES to any of the symptoms in Question 1 of Step 2, please do not come to campus. Call your primary care physician first, then notify your supervisor and complete the COVID-19 Reporting Form. Your supervisor will notify Human Resources.

If you have tested positive for COVID-19 or if you are a confirmed contact of someone who has tested positive, notify HR immediately, then complete the COVID-19 Reporting Form. You will need a release letter from the Arkansas Department of Health to return to work.

If you answered NO to ALL questions in Step 2, you are clear to come to campus.

By coming to campus, I verify that I am free from the COVID-19 symptoms listed above.
