Beginning in the fall 2020 semester, all Marshall University students who plan to be on campus that day must log onto MarshallU Healthcheck and complete a brief COVID-19 health self-assessment. This tool—which requires students to monitor and input their body temperature and symptoms—is intended to help ensure a safe campus. Students who are showing signs of illness are asked to stay home and follow the following steps.
Students who are experiencing symptoms can call Student Health at 304-691-1100 in the mornings from Monday through Friday. They can also call the Cabell Huntington Health Department at 304-526-6544 from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m., Monday through Friday; the Marshall Health COVID-19 information hotline at 304-696-2900 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.; or the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources 24/7, toll-free hotline at 1-800-887-4303.
Students diagnosed with COVID-19 must remain isolated and should immediately contact Leah Tolliver at email@example.com for contact tracing to begin. Personal information will be kept confidential.
The daily brief MarshallU Healthcheck task is to be completed by:
- Any student who has face-to-face classes on any Marshall University physical campus;
- Any student who lives in the residence halls ; and
- Any student who plans to visit campus that day for another reason.
Faculty and Staff
The healthcheck also must be completed daily by any Marshall employee in self-isolation or quarantine for COVID-19. Employees who are experiencing symptoms should contact
their personal healthcare provider.

If your survey times out, your responses will not be saved, and you will be provided with a “Not Cleared” event pass.
Completing the MarshallU Healthcheck by 1:00 p.m. daily is a requirement for students, with University Conduct sanctions for students who do not comply.
Sanctions for on-campus students who fail to input their health information in the MarshallU Healthcheck app each day are similar as the sanctions for not wearing a mask and other university violations ranging from harassment to destruction property and more. Sanctions could include:
- Formal warning
- Conduct probation (which limits participation in extracurricular activities and student privileges)
- Probationary suspension
Thank you for your efforts to take care of yourself and others by cooperating with this new requirement.
We look forward to seeing students on campus and we hope to keep it open with these new efforts that encourage our health and safety.
