LEXINGTON, Ky. (Oct. 12, 2020) The daily health screening completed by University of Kentucky students and employees who come to campus will now be available in an app, which provides much more flexibility for the user. The new UK Wellness Review app is now available for both Android and iOS devices.

The daily health screening is an important component in UK’s robust effort to keep the UK community healthy and safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. If students or employees indicate symptoms of illness in their daily screening, UK Health Corps will follow up with those individuals for appropriate action that may include coronavirus testing and individualized support from the Health Corps team.

Since the Fall 2020 semester began, the daily health screening has been sent via email each morning to UK community members who will be on campus, however the UK Wellness Review app provides access to the daily screening at any time in addition to the daily email. Now there will be no need to wait until an email arrives. Also, the app has a resources page that will help answer questions or provide contact information to UK Health Corps.

The app will work on any mobile device, including smartphones, iPads and tablets for both Android and iOS. More information about the daily health screening can be found by visiting http://go.uky.edu/dailyscreening.

The University of Kentucky is increasingly the first choice for students, faculty and staff to pursue their passions and their professional goals. In the last two years, Forbes has named UK among the best employers for diversity, and INSIGHT into Diversity recognized us as a Diversity Champion three years running. UK is ranked among the top 30 campuses in the nation for LGBTQ* inclusion and safety. UK has been judged a “Great College to Work for" three years in a row, and UK is among only 22 universities in the country on Forbes' list of "America's Best Employers."  We are ranked among the top 10 percent of public institutions for research expenditures — a tangible symbol of our breadth and depth as a university focused on discovery that changes lives and communities. And our patients know and appreciate the fact that UK HealthCare has been named the state’s top hospital for four straight years. Accolades and honors are great. But they are more important for what they represent: the idea that creating a community of belonging and commitment to excellence is how we honor our mission to be not simply the University of Kentucky, but the University for Kentucky.
