As Buckeye Wellness Innovators, you are invited to join the official Pelotonia team for the Office of the Chief Wellness Officer for this year’s Pelotonia ride.

Change to daily health reporting requirement

Effective immediately, Ohio State students, faculty and staff are no longer required to complete the daily health check when they are well. All employees should stay home instead of coming to work if they are experiencing symptoms of illness. Please note that Wexner Medical Center faculty and staff, as well as students with clinical responsibilities in hospital facilities, are required to use the Ohio State app or compass.osu.edu to report if they are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms prior to their scheduled workday. Daily reporting is not required when they are well or on days where they are not scheduled to work. All students, faculty and staff must follow all other Safe and Healthy Buckeyes personal safety practices to limit the spread of COVID-19 and other illnesses.
