About the COVID-19 Health Screening

In accordance with Governor Abbott’s Executive Order GA-18, Brazosport College must ensure every person entering campus meets minimum health standards. We are accomplishing this by requiring a COVID-19 Health Screening questionnaire be completed before students, employees and visitors arrive on campus.

If you fail the health screening, you will be shown a red exclamation mark with "STAY HOME, STAY SAFE," your name, and the date you completed the questionnaire.

What to Expect If You Fail the Screening

Based on the answers you provided, there is a potential you are displaying symptoms of an illness or may have been exposed to COVID-19. This DOES NOT mean you have COVID-19; this can only be determined through testing designed to identify the COVID-19 virus.

We recommend contacting your healthcare provider for more information or visiting the Brazoria County Health Department website for a list of COVID-19 testing sites.

Please review the information below regarding steps you must follow before you may return to campus.

IF YOU ARE DISPLAYING SYMPTOMS
If you are displaying fever or other COVID-type symptoms, you should self-isolate until you are fever-free (without fever-reducing medication) for at least 24 hours, AND have improvement in symptoms, AND it’s been at least 7 days since symptoms first appeared. If symptoms worsen, contact your medical provider or seek medical attention.

IF YOU HAVE BEEN EXPOSED TO COVID-19
If you have been in close contact with someone testing positive for COVID-19, you should self-isolate for 14 days and contact your medical provider if symptoms present.

IF YOU HAVE TESTED POSITIVE FOR COVID-19
If you have been tested positive for COVID-19, you should remain self-isolated for at least 10 days since symptom onset and have had 24 hours without fever (without fever-reducing medications) AND have improvements in symptoms.

Your Privacy is our Priority

The information collected through the COVID-19 Health Screening questionnaire will only be used by Brazosport College staff internally to help protect against the potential spread of COVID-19 through standard contact tracing processes. The information will only be stored as long as necessary for Brazosport College to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.
