COVID Return to Work Training: The RWT must be taken, prior to entering any BMCC campus.   The training is located on BlackBoard, under “My Organizations”.  It is recommended you take a screengrab of the completion page (showing the check marks and the notation of completion) before you select submit.

In addition, all BMCC Employees and Guests of the University must take a daily Wellness Check Survey before entering any BMCC location.  Accessible through Everbridge’s Health Screening app., the survey has five short questions.  Please use this Instructional Guide for accessing and using the app. Visitors should use the Visitors’ Guide for instructions.  Based on the answers provided, you will receive a confirmation on your phone or email that clears you to enter BMCC. Employees who are not cleared to enter must provide medical clearance to HR prior to access to the college.  To find a testing site, you may text COVID TEST to 855-48. After entering your zip code, a list of available testing sites will be provided.  For additional information on the Everbridge Health app. please refer to the FAQ guide.
