The daily health check is a critical step in our efforts to promote a healthy learning and working environment. Students, faculty and staff are required to complete the assessment before they come to campus or leave their residence halls. Consider setting up daily calendar reminders to help you remember to fill out your daily Healthcheck. Non-completion will result in a red assessment, meaning you will be restricted from coming to campus.
Our actions can greatly affect the lives and well-being of others. NAU Healthcheck is one of many steps NAU is taking to promote a healthy environment for students, faculty and staff during the pandemic.
All NAU students, faculty and staff will be required to complete a daily health assessment when they will be on campus or participating in any in-person university activities.
The NAU Healthcheck system was designed by the healthcare professionals at the University of Alabama Birmingham who went to great lengths to ensure the application is HIPAA compliant and built on a secure platform. Your Healthcare account is also protected by NAU’s CAS authentication system which has undergone extensive security audit testing. Other than your email address, no personally identifying information is stored in the Healthcheck system.
NAU uses the information it collects through NAU Healthcheck, which is associated with your personal NAU technology access credentials, to monitor and help reduce the spread of COVID-19. The university recognizes the sensitivity of the information you provide in the NAU Healthcheck tool and has implemented privacy and security safeguards for this information in accordance with Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requirements. NAU retains and uses this information only as required or permitted by law.
Consistency is the key to taking your temperature. Please ensure you take your temperature around the same time each day as your temperature can fluctuate hour to hour, especially when out in the summer heat.
If you are taking your temperature orally, don’t eat or drink anything for 15 minutes prior.
If your temperature is above 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit, please stay home and monitor your symptoms.
The best way to accurately answer the questions on NAU Healthcheck is to be consistent with your temperature checks and daily symptom monitoring. By committing to this, we can help keep the NAU community healthy.

NAU students, faculty and staff are required to complete the assessment on any day they will be on campus or participating in in-person university activities. While it is only required when you are on campus or in-person, we recommend that members of the NAU community develop a consistent routine of monitoring for COVID-19 related symptoms and complete the daily health check everyday.
Any day that you are working fully remotely you are not required to take the assessment. If you are called in or report in-person at any time you must complete the health check prior to reporting in-person.

Thermometers were included in the NAU Care Kit distributed at the beginning of the semester. Care kits are distributed to incoming freshmen and new transfer students in conjunction with their Jacks Card upon move-in to campus; students living off-campus can pick up their kits at the Information Desk at the University Union or the Du Bois Center. Students will need to show their NAU ID to pick up a kit.
Professors aren’t automatically notified, so please contact your instructors and plan to participate in class remotely via NAUFlex until you are free of symptoms or directed otherwise.
NAU community members who need to be tested should contact their health provider or Campus Health Services for more information.
As you evaluate your symptoms, only report new symptoms that are not related to existing health conditions or recent activity such as:
If you have questions about your health status, talk to your health care provider.
After receiving your assessment, NAU Healthcheck allows you to generate a passport that shows whether or not it’s OK for you to come to campus. The passport will be green, cleared to come to campus, or red, not cleared to come to campus, depending on your reported new symptoms and exposure.
Showing your passport on campus may be required in the future.
