COVID-19 Building Access Guidelines and Procedures

As Wilmington University campuses remain closed and we continue to operate remotely, we understand that there are instances where essential personnel may have to come to campus to access our buildings. Through the guidance from both state and public health authorities, we have established interim coronavirus (COVID-19) guidelines and protocols for these unique circumstances.

These guidelines have been implemented to best protect the safety and well-being of the members of the community and may change at any time as conditions and/or circumstances warrant.

Below are key procedures and guidelines.

University Building Access

Essential personnel requesting to have access to University Buildings must:

  1. Consult with their supervisor to determine if there is an alternative to accessing campus.
  2. If access is needed, submit a request to access form at least 48 hours in advance, and receive approval.

    Request Access

  3. Once approval has been received, all essential personnel will be required to:
    • Complete and CLEAR an electronic health screening questionnaire the day of arriving to campus.
    • Bring the health screening email confirmation showing CLEARANCE and completion the same day as arrival, in print or on a device, and be prepared to produce this confirmation for a Constable.
    • Wear a face make or covering upon arrival to campus.
    • Complete a temperature screening, which will be conducted at the University Safety Constable desk at each campus. Individual temperatures must be equivalent or less than 100.3°F.
    • Review all protective measures and practice them while on campus.

Health Screening

All personnel approved for access must complete an electronic health screening questionnaire prior to arriving on the same day they plan to come to campus. Essential personnel will receive an email confirmation with either a CLEARANCE to access buildings on campus or a STOP notification, requiring them to leave campus. Essential personnel that receive a CLEARANCE notification are required to produce this to the Constable once they arrive to campus, prior to the temperature screening.
