a useful way to track and assess the health situation on campus.
The form requests various types of information, including the name of the
individual with flu-like symptoms; whether the individual is a
student, faculty member or a member of staff/administration; and
whether the individual lives in campus housing or is a
commuter/off campus resident. The form provides blocks for any
available contact information, such as e-mail address(es), cell
phone numbers, residence hall names/locations, ASU work
location, and the names of any friends, parents, or other
contacts. An identification box allows the form user reporting
for an ill individual to describe his/her relationship to the
individual (student, friend, parent, administrator, other) and a
second identification box allows the form user to detail whether
he/she was notified by e-mail, by phone or in person.
user should also select his/her status (student, faculty, or
staff/administration), and provide a valid e-mail address and
phone number if he/she wishes to be a contact person for the ill
individual. An additional space for comments is available.
Comments might include needs, access or lack of access to the
Internet, or other items of note. Parents of commuting
students or students who live off-campus are especially urged to
report the status of their student(s).
