OUHSC Travel Update: New screening process, effective 3-18-20
Published March 18, 2020
Dear OUHSC colleagues,
Your health and well‐being continue to be our top priority. Please carefully review this Travel Update concerning domestic and international travel, instituted in response to the increasing number of transmissions of COVID‐19 worldwide.
Effective March 18, 2020, employees, residents and students returning from domestic or international travel must complete a telephone screening PRIOR to returning to campus, or to being assigned to University duties. Domestic travel includes any travel outside the State of Oklahoma. An online screening process will be available shortly. In the meantime, please contact the OUHSC Health and Wellness Clinic at employee‐firstname.lastname@example.org, and for the OU‐Tulsa Campus please call Student & Employee Health at 918‐660‐3102. If directed by the medical professional conducting your screening, you may be subject to a self‐isolation period.
Given the unique nature of the programs at the OU Health Sciences Center, with campuses in Oklahoma City and Tulsa, our health care mission and our patient populations, this new screening requirement is an important effort we can implement to stop the spread of COVID‐19.
