University officials may request to see your Daily Symptom Survey (DSS) results email to verify that you are compliant with campus policy and permitted to access university facilities and programs.
Requesting Symptom Survey results without a business need to do so, may infringe on the privacy of others. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have concerns.
Officials who may ask to see your Daily Symptom Survey (DSS) results email, include:
- Your supervisor and manager
- Classroom Instructors and Academic Advisors (e.g., when students access classrooms, offices, other spaces for academic-related meetings)
- Aggie Public Health Ambassadors
- Employees at points-of-sale (e.g., purchasing food, event tickets, merchandise)
- Employees at points-of-service (e.g., customer service desk)
- Event staff and employees assigned to control facility entry points (including labs)
It is not appropriate to ask to see DSS results:
- Between colleagues at a meeting.
- When you’re sitting next to someone in a meeting or a classroom.
- When you see someone walking down the hall or standing in a public, interior space (e.g., elevator, water fountain)
- Because you think it will tell you the person’s vaccination status
- Because you’re friends or “just curious”

Instructor options for reviewing DSS results
We understand that checking individual results may not be feasible in all situations.
- Ask students to come to class with their email results ready and check for approved status for entry.
- Ask students to lift their phones at the start of class so you can visually confirm their green/purple approved status.
- Ask students to email you their approved results, if manageable.
Saving DSS results emails
Supervisors and facility managers may ask employees or students to forward their Symptom Survey results email to verify compliance:
- Do not keep Symptom Survey results emails for longer than the day you need to use it.
- Those who receive Symptom Survey results emails should delete stored copies.
