The badge status types and definitions are:
Cleared (green): Up to date on daily health screening ("Survey") and surveillance testing ("Lab Test"). Not in quarantine or isolation. Cleared to access campus.
Overdue (yellow): Has not completed daily health screening ("Survey"), surveillance testing ("Lab Test"), or both. Not cleared to access campus.
Quarantine (orange): Status is in quarantine due to close contact with a positive case. Not cleared to access campus.
Isolation (red): Status is in isolation. Has recent positive test result requiring isolation or has indicated having symptoms of COVID-19 during daily health screening. Not cleared to access campus.
NA (blue): Screening badge is not enabled. If student is local, they should contact the Hammond Health Center so the badge can be enabled.
The badge conveniently shows the date and time so that students can demonstrate that their badge status is current.
Students need to carefully complete their daily health screening ("Survey") as their answers affect their badge status. Returning to the "green" cleared status is accomplished through cooperation between the Hammond Health Center and Tompkins County Health Department. Changes in status to the "green" cleared status are made during Hammond Health Center business hours, Monday - Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
It is important to remember that while a green badge status is required in order to access most campus locations, the "green" cleared status badge does not mean that a student is free from COVID-19 infection. It means that they are completing their daily health screening ("Survey"), testing twice weekly and their test results are negative. Continued infection prevention measures such as mask-wearing, physical distancing and good hand hygiene are still extremely important! Please continue to abide by the Community Agreement.
