Daily health survey reminder

As of August 17, all faculty and staff, whether working on campus or at home, are required to complete the daily health survey at dailyhealth.vcu.edu. The purpose of the survey is to do our part in keeping each other healthy and limiting the spread of COVID-19 in our community. All employees will receive a daily email reminder to complete their health survey. Employees may also access the survey through WorkReady on the “VCUMobile” app and through the myVCU portal by clicking "Daily Health Check" under General Resources on the upper right of the page. Weekends and non-work days, like vacation, are excluded.

If you respond “yes” to the survey and are experiencing symptoms or test positive for COVID-19, you should contact the VCU COVID hotline at 804-MYCOVID or 1-804-692-6843.

In order to support VCU compliance efforts with the completion of the daily health surveys, supervisors and managers are now able to view reports indicating whether or not your employees are completing the survey. Scroll down to the “daily health check reports for managers” dropdown box on the return to campus page for instructions. This new reporting feature includes integration with RealTime so that employees on leave are identified and excluded from compliance reporting.

Managers are expected to reach out to employees who are not in compliance and advise them that this is a mandatory requirement for all VCU employees. In the event of continued employee non-compliance, managers may contact your HR Professional for consultation on appropriate disciplinary action.

As a reminder, for University and Academic Professionals and 12-month Faculty, the leave carryover limit will not be applied at the end of the 2020 leave year on January 9, 2021. This means that leave balances will not be subject to the carryover limit until the end of the 2021 leave year on January 9, 2022. For additional information about changes to the leave carry forward extension, visit the leave section on the VCU HR website.

If you have any questions about the daily healthy survey or VCU’s return to campus, please email together@vcu.edu.
