Fall Update for Students - July 31

Left Nav


Last week you received an email from Dr. Briggs sharing how we will welcome you in a safe way. To facilitate this transition, each community member is asked to complete a series of requirements in order to return to campus. Earlier this week, you received instructions on how to register for a move-in time from residence life if you are a residential student. You should soon receive a separate email outlining the steps you need to take to complete your COVID-19 test.

ACTION ITEMS IN THIS EMAIL:
  1. Begin logging your symptoms daily in the Medicat health portal.
  2. Complete the online COVID-19 education module.
  3. Read and sign the behavior agreement.

DAILY SYMPTOM TRACKER Effective August 3, 2020, all students (as well as faculty and staff) must login daily to the Medicat health portal to record their symptoms and temperature. Students on campus need to complete the symptom tracker each morning PRIOR to going to work and/or class. This screening will continue until we are confident that the campus is healthy and stable. The information collected in the Medicat health portal is seen only by Health Center Staff and is protected by HIPAA. It’s important that you be honest and diligent about your daily reports. Follow the instructions below to begin your daily symptom tracking:

  1. Go to http://health.berry.edu and login using your Berry email credentials.
  2. Click on the COVID-19 Tab.
  3. Complete the Symptoms Tracker and submit.
EDUCATION MODULE 

We have partnered with United Educators to provide an easy and brief online educational module. To ensure all community members are hearing and receiving the same message, we ask that you complete the following course: Your Campus and COVID-19: The Road Back.

The deadline to complete this course is August 10, 2020. To begin training, please visit Edurisk by United Educators. The first time you log in, the system will prompt you to reset your temporary password and set a security question. You will receive a confirmation email upon successful completion of the course. Students are also required to complete the quiz at the end of the course. If you have any issues with sign-in or accessing the courses, visit the Support Portal, or click any Support Portal link on the site. You may also wish to Test Your Configuration to ensure that your computer meets all System Requirements. If the problem persists, contact deanofstudents@berry.edu.

BEHAVIOR AGREEMENT  All students are expected to adhere to all policies and practices related to the coronavirus that are adopted and amended over time as the college responds proactively to different levels and avenues of risk.  Students must also acknowledge and sign a behavior agreement stating they understand the measures put in place as well as the expectation of their behavior. To access the behavior agreement, log into VikingWeb. Under the COVID-19 tab, select “COVID-19 Behavior Agreement”. Please read carefully, indicate the terms of acknowledgement, and click submit. In this time of rapid change, we want to help you focus on what you need to do in preparation for coming to campus in just a few short weeks.  If you have any questions, please reach out to deanofstudents@berry.edu.
