UMB SAFE on Campus: Screen Your Symptoms

Effective Monday, June 14, UMB faculty, staff, and students who are not vaccinated against COVID-19 must complete the UMB SAFE on Campus daily health screening prior to coming to campus, which includes going to work or attending clinical experiential learning sites.

If you are getting the SAFE email notices, you can now ignore them on days you are working or studying remotely. UMB has discontinued the Episodic Symptom Monitoring Report Form and pause or other modification requests. Just keep the daily email notice in your inbox and use it on the same day if you are planning to go in.

University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMSOM) and University of Maryland School of Nursing (UMSON) students will receive the SAFE survey daily form. Vaccinated students only need to complete it on the days when attending a clinical practicum off site. Unvaccinated students must complete it every day they are coming to campus, work, or going to a practicum.

The SAFE on Campus daily symptom monitoring applies to UMB people doing UMB work with other people, including at non-UMB owned work sites.

Although the SAFE on Campus symptom monitoring program collected self-reported vaccination information in the past, there was no mechanism for you to provide proof of your vaccine. With the vaccine being mandatory for the fall semester, UMB requires evidence of the vaccine. 

UMB may already have proof of your vaccine if you got yours at the UMB Vaccination Clinic, or signed consent for the Maryland vaccine database in CRISP to release it. If your status at the UMB COVID-19 Management Portal does not indicate "confirmed," then you should follow the directions in the portal to upload an image of your vaccine proof.

Once this evidence is processed, your status will be changed to “confirmed” and you will no longer receive notices to complete daily symptom monitoring (with the exception of nursing and medical students who will still need to complete this on days attending practicum/rotations off-site, even if vaccinated).

To stop receiving SAFE emails, become fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and submit proof to UMB. Take action in the UMB COVID-19 Management Portal by authorizing CRISP to share vaccination records from a regional provider partner, or upload proof of vaccination, including dates and doses.

How does it work?

The changes below are effective Monday, June 14:

  • New employees and students not yet registered should complete the SAFE on Campus registration link sent via email from
    safe-no-reply@umaryland.edu.
  • If you are a SON/SOM student you will get a daily email with a link to the SAFE reporting survey, to use on days you are attending clinical practicum sites.
  • If UMB has confirmation of vaccination and you are not a SON/SOM student, you will not receive any email notices.
  • If UMB does not have confirmation of vaccination, you will get a daily email with a link to the symptom survey, which you must open and complete ONLY ON DAYS when you will be coming to work/school/campus.
