Shield Our Spartans

Spring 2023

It is very important that we all work together to ensure each other’s safety. Every day, before coming to work, you should screen yourself for symptoms and check your temperature. If you experience any of the symptoms listed below, or do not feel well for some other reason, you should not report to work. Instead, you should call your primary care provider and notify your supervisor.

The information presented in this document on COVID-19 symptoms and screening/self-monitoring is based upon guidance provided on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website


A wide range of symptoms have been reported with COVID-19; these symptoms may appear 2-14 days after being exposed to the virus.

  • Fever higher than 100.0 degrees, or feeling hot/cold chills
  • Cough
  • Sore throat
  • Shortness of breath/difficulty breathing
  • Body aches out of the ordinary
  • New loss of taste or smell

This list of symptoms is not a complete one; please consult with your medical provider if you are experiencing any symptoms that are severe or concerning to you. 

If you have been in close contact (within 6 feet for 10 minutes or longer) with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 or is being tested for COVID-19 you should also not report to work, and notify your supervisor.
