UGA students, faculty, and staff have impacted communities throughout the state, the country, and the world. Now, we need your help at home.
Immediate self-reporting is critical to helping us assess and respond to risks and exposures on campus. That’s why we’ve created DawgCheck: an easy-to-use, COVID-19 self-screening tool.
With DawgCheck, assess symptoms related to COVID-19 daily, and report a positive COVID-19 test. No symptoms? Great! But still respond through DawgCheck every day before you leave your home or dorm. COVID-19 carriers can be asymptomatic, so using the DawgCheck tool every day is crucial to help us be proactive in stopping the spread.
After completing your symptom check, you will receive an email with instructions detailing next steps. Submitting a positive test for COVID-19 through DawgCheck will alert key UGA groups. For students, the Student Care and Outreach team will reach out to help coordinate medical assistance, meal delivery, and housing while in isolation, as well as notify professors and provide other assistance as needed. For faculty and staff, your supervisors will be alerted.
Facilities Management will be notified of all positive test reporting to address needs for cleaning and disinfection. Finally, and very importantly, anyone submitting a positive test will be asked to retrace their steps and recall their contacts. This information will be shared safely and securely with the Georgia Department of Public Health to help facilitate contact tracing.
By doing your part to self-monitor and report, we can take the actions necessary to protect your fellow Bulldogs from potential exposure and help to contain the spread of the virus.
The health and safety of the UGA community is our top priority.
