  1. Vaccination Compliance ProgramThe university requires all employees, regardless of role and work location, to have an FDA- or WHO- authorized or approved COVID-19 vaccine as part of comprehensive vaccination against this virus. To meet the requirements, faculty and staff must upload proof of vaccination to the Daily Check or have obtained a university-approved disability/ medical or religious exemption. After each dose, employees must enter that information in Cornell’s vaccine registry via the Daily Check portal.
  2. Self-monitoring: You only need to complete the Daily Check health assessment if you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.
