Important COVID Update: Symptom Check and Campus Access

Dear members of the Emerson community,

Tomorrow, September 2, we begin to hold face-to-face classes and members of the Emerson community will be accessing campus classrooms for the first time. We want to remind you of the symptom checker requirements that will allow you access to our campus buildings.

Starting tomorrow, everyone coming to campus must complete a very brief daily self-report of current or new symptoms. You can do this easily on the Daily Symptom Checker, which is a new feature of the Emerson mobile app. If you have no symptoms, then you will receive a green badge within the app and will automatically be cleared for campus access to our buildings beginning Wednesday, September 2, at 7:00 am ET. Please have the green badge screen ready to present to the security guard when you use your Emerson College ID to tap into each building on campus.

Any employees experiencing symptoms should contact their manager and as soon as possible to discuss your symptoms. Staff and faculty with symptoms will also be directed to contact their primary care provider (PCP) for further guidance.

Students are instructed to contact the Center for Health and Wellness at 617-824-8666 or

So far, our community has done a tremendous job in following the College’s guidelines for reopening. Let’s continue this great work and have a safe and rewarding semester like no other.
