Change the world

18/06/2020

A new online COVID-19 self-screening tool aimed at monitoring the wellbeing of Nelson Mandela University staff and students and to facilitate easier access to campuses and residences is now officially in use.

As of today (18 June 2020), with a limited number of identified students starting to return to campus, each staff member and student will start using the COVID-19 self-screening tool to complement the University’s present health and safety monitoring and surveillance protocols.

The self-screening is for your own safety, but also a legal requirement for the University in terms of providing status updates of staff and students on campus.

Please add the link to your home screen on your phone and/or laptop to allow for regular self-screening – at least twice a day while on any of the University’s Port Elizabeth or George campuses. 

The link is: https://webapps.mandela.ac.za/screening

Step-by-Step

All staff and students need to log in using your standard University username and password. Thereafter, you answer a series of short questions, at the end of which you will be given an outcome of low, medium or high risk.

Should you struggle to log in, please contact the University’s Helpdesk on extension 3000.

University Dashboard

This information is fed directly to a University dashboard (where the data is stored), solely monitored by the University’s healthcare services – Occupational Health Services and Student Health Services – for privacy reasons. It offers an overall picture of the status of staff and students on campus.

Follow-up on High-Risk Cases

More critically, however, it allows for the health professionals to immediately follow up directly with individuals whose findings are high risk and implement the correct health protocols. This is both for the safety of the individual and that of others.

Ease of Movement

Staff and students will need to share their screening results before entering campus, residences and other University facilities.

This “ticket result” screen is only valid for four hours. Hence the need for ongoing screening throughout the day. This is not just for your own wellbeing, but also to enable easier movement within campus and between campuses and, for example, accredited off-campus residences.

The need for ongoing self-screening is one of the many new interventions in place at Nelson Mandela University as we adapt to new ways of working, learning, teaching and living in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Its success, and ultimately your own wellbeing, is dependent on your support and commitment.

Staff and students are urged to play their part by taking responsibility for their own health and that of others.
