Griz Health will serve a resource for students, faculty and staff as the campus community operates during the COVID-19 pandemic. We anticipate that Griz Health participants will create a presence on the UM campus to promote best practices and to actively participate in mitigation strategies to prevent disease transmission. Duties could include temperature monitoring, participation in tracing activities, and dissemination of health information.
You would need to be available 3-5 hours every week during the semester to volunteer at a promotional/informational booth, help perform symptom checks around campus, and/or to conduct contact tracing if the need arises. Students will receive Griz Health swag, meals at the Food Zoo or Bear Bucks (dependent on participation), PPE, a digital badge, along with helping to keep the campus open and COVID-free!
To get started complete the brief qualtrics survey. UMOnline will then use your NetID number to enroll you in a continuing education Moodle course. The self-paced course will require about five to six hours and must be completed before the Fall 2020 semester begins. Once you have finished the self-paced course you will then be contacted by one of the Griz Health coordinators. Throughout the Fall 2020 semester we will continue to use the Moodle site to share updated information on SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19 from campus and community experts.
Please note that Griz Health is for UM students only. If you are a non-UM student you may register for training through the MT Public Health Training Center.
