Carthage and COVID-19

Symptom Monitoring

COVID-19 spreads quickly and easily. One of the most important ways to keep our community safe is to conduct symptom monitoring every day. All Carthage students and employees must self-monitor symptoms daily before reporting to work, coming to campus, or leaving their residence hall rooms.

The College will not be administering on-campus temperature monitoring at this time, but it is suggested that you make this screening part of your morning routine before coming to campus. A checklist has been provided to help with this daily assessment. All should be symptom-free in order to participate in daily Carthage activities.

Symptoms could include one or more of the following:

  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Repeated shaking with chills
  • Runny nose or new sinus congestion
  • Muscle pain
  • Headache
  • Sore throat
  • Fatigue
  • New GI symptoms
  • New loss of taste or smell

If you exhibit any of the symptoms above, please do not come to campus or participate in campus activities.

For Employees


As we move operations back to campus, it is critical that we follow this self-monitoring system.

  • If you or members of your household have any symptoms listed above, you should contact your supervisor and should not report to work.
  • If you have already reported to work when symptoms develop, you should notify your supervisor, leave campus immediately, and then work with your supervisor to make alternate remote working arrangements where possible.
  • Employees should wear a face mask to avoid possible virus transmission to others.
  • It is advised that you contact your physician and/or access area testing. For information on testing, contact the local hotline at 211 or the Kenosha County Health Department at 262-605-6700. See a list of local testing sites
