Cardinal Daily Health Check

To keep the Cardinal Community safe and help reduce the chance of COVID-19 spread we have implemented a new self-screening tool for the UIW community. This web-based tool, Cardinal Daily Health Check, must be completed by all employees, students and guests before they visit any UIW locations. Starting August 13, 2020 Cardinal Daily Health Check, must be completed EVERY DAY by all individuals visiting UIW locations.

Health and Safety are paramount to the University of the Incarnate Word and the Sports and Wellness department. Taking steps to minimize the risk of COVID-19 infections (or any other spread of disease) at UIW and in our community is a shared responsibility and a critical part of caring for all who live, work and learn with us.

Its the responsibility of all to review the UIW Cardinal Flight Plan.

In order to protect the UIW Community, the Sports and Wellness department will be utilizing a three-tier disinfecting system for all of its facilities.

3-Tier Disinfecting System

Tier 1 

Patron responsibility: Before and after each use of UIW equipment, patrons will wipe down the equipment with provided disinfecting supplies. This is an unchanged procedure from previous years and a critical responsibility in disease control. Patrons are also responsible for disinfecting all personal equipment and gear before and after each use.

Tier 2 

Sports and Wellness responsibilities: The Fencing Center will close after the conclusion of each session; staff will perform disinfecting measures utilizing a handheld misting system to ensure adequate coverage.

Tier 3 

Sports and Wellness responsibilities: At the conclusion of the final available work out session staff will perform deep disinfecting procedures utilizing a disinfecting fogging system, designed for maximum penetration and disinfection.

It takes a communal effort to maintain the health and safety of the Henrich Center for Fencing and International Sports, please ensure that you are doing your part to protect your fellow cardinal.
