The College has developed a "multilayered" health and safety strategy with the purpose of ensuring that any possible illness is caught early and that we reduce the possibility of illness transmission (read more about our strategy). Our assessment of our strategy and campus operations take into account four factors: (1) assessing evidence of campus "spread" of illness, (2) the capacity to test, trace, and isolate members of the campus community, (3) health care, personal protective equipment, and related supply capacity, and (4) status of COVID-19 in Wayne County Ohio. These indicators serve to inform the College of Wooster community about our current status and our continual assessment of our strategy and campus operations.

Campus Health Checking
Our "Scots' Daily Health Check" asks whether individuals are on campus or remote, if they have had close contact within the last 14 days to someone with COVID-19, whether they have taken their temperature within four hours of completing the survey, and to indicate if they are experiencing any of the following symptoms and unsure as to why (i.e. fever of at least 100.4; shortness of breath; a new, unexplained cough; new, unexplained fatigue; new, unexplained muscle or body aches; a new, unexplained headache; new loss of taste or smell; sore throat; congestion or runny nose (excluding seasonal allergies); nausea or vomiting; or, diarrhea). The Longbrake Wellness Center staff contact all students who indicate one or more symptoms on the day reported.
