Daily Wellness Survey

Who Must Take the Wellness Survey

  • Health sciences student learners
  • Health sciences teaching and research faculty and fellows
  • WVU Medicine and practice plan employees assigned to the Health Sciences Center campuses to provide support

Who Doesn't Have to Take the Wellness Survey

  • Clinical faculty
  • Clinical fellows
  • Health sciences residents

These individuals should continue to follow appropriate WVU Medicine guidelines on symptom monitoring.

ITS is working diligently to ensure those not required to complete the survey do not receive the daily email. However, this will take some time to finalize. We ask for your patience in the interim.

Health Sciences clinical faculty and medical residents are exempt from completing the Daily Wellness Survey due to the nature of their work. As long as clinical faculty and medical residents are wearing a face mask and following public health safety protocols, they are permitted to be on campus and in buildings that are open to the campus community.

WVU Medicine Travel Guidelines

Due to the nature of their work, WVU clinical faculty, residents and fellows will follow WVU Medicine guidelines on travel:

  • For domestic travel: An employee who visited a domestic location and who is asymptomatic can return to work with no restrictions. The employee will be required to wear a face mask and self-monitor for symptoms.
  • For international travel/cruise ship travel:
    • If an employee has received the COVID vaccine, and it has been 14 days after the second dose and they have visited an international location or were on a cruise ship within 3 months of receiving the second dose; no quarantine is necessary.
    • If an employee has not received the COVID vaccine and has visited an international location or were on a cruise ship; prior to starting or returning to work, they must self-quarantine/self-monitor for 5 days, then come to work with surgical mask/appropriate mask and any other required appropriate PPE.
    • If an employee has tested positive for COVID and they have traveled internationally within 3 months of initial diagnosis; no quarantine is necessary. If it is after the 3 months and they have traveled internationally, they must self-quarantine/self-monitor for 5 days, then come to work with surgical mask/appropriate mask and any other required appropriate PPE.

Other faculty, staff and students should follow WVU Travel Guidelines.
