Employee Wellness Screenings

On Monday, August 10, any employee entering CUPPA Hall (even for a minute to get something, etc.) MUST complete the Employee Wellness Screening Form within 30 minutes of swiping into the building each day that you enter CUPPA Hall or any UIC building. It is strongly recommended that you complete the form PRIOR to leaving your home. The form is available here: https://go.uic.edu/dailysurvey.

Each unit has a designated unit monitor who will receive an email every 30 minutes after entry until the Wellness Screening Form has been completed. If the employee does not complete the Wellness Screening Form by the close of business on the day of entry, building I- card swipe access will be removed. I-card swipe access may be re-activated after the employee meets with the department head or director and the CUPPA Front Desk.
