In-person employee screening ends Sept. 30, self screening continues

Following the COVID-19 vaccine employee mandate deadline, BJC HealthCare and Washington University will no longer actively screen employees in person at entry points, effective Sept. 30. However, all employees reporting to campus are required to continue using the online screening tool to monitor for COVID-19 symptoms daily before coming to work.

It remains critically important not to come to work with symptoms. Working while ill puts your colleagues and patients at risk. By reporting to work and/or clocking in, employees are attesting that they do not have COVID-19 symptoms. If you have questions about or need to report possible COVID-19 symptoms, contact the employee COVID-19 Exposure/Illness Hotline at 314-362-5056.

Patients and visitors will continue to undergo in-person screening when entering buildings on the Medical Campus.
