Education Module Available for Faculty and Staff

An education module on the COVID-19 virus and Creighton’s response is being made available to faculty and staff. An email was sent on Monday, Sept. 28, from Get Inclusive, a third-party vendor, that included a unique link to the module, as assigned to each faculty and staff member’s Net ID. A follow-up email will be sent tomorrow (Tuesday, Oct. 6) to faculty and staff who have not completed the module. The email will come from support@GetInclusive.com. Please take the time to complete the training. If you have any questions, please contact Chris Stanczak, 402-280-4726.

Shoo the Flu Campaign Continues

Free flu vaccines continue to be offered at campus locations through Creighton’s Shoo the Flu campaign. Walk-in service is available daily, Monday-Friday, in the Skutt Student Center Ballroom and on select dates at the Vinardi Center (Old Gym) and CHI Health Creighton University Medical Center – Bergan Mercy. No registration is required, but be sure to bring your Creighton ID. Confirmation of vaccinations obtained elsewhere must be uploaded to the Birdhouse. All faculty, staff and students are required to get a flu vaccine, in accordance with Creighton’s COVID-19 Community Standards, unless approved for an exemption. Learn more.

Optional Surveillance Testing Offered to Faculty and Staff

Employees classified as “on premises” or “reduced on premises” are encouraged to sign up for Creighton’s opt-in COVID-19 surveillance testing. A random sample of students, faculty and staff is selected weekly and notified by email to get tested at Creighton’s on-campus testing center in the Kiewit Fitness Center. If you have recently tested positive for COVID-19, you are advised not to put yourself in the pool for random sampling. Contact Student Health Education and Compliance at CoronavirusResponse@creighton.edu if you have any questions. Creighton’s testing center also will continue to offer walk-in service. The center is open 9 a.m.-noon on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday.
