The COVID-19 pandemic is an extraordinary situation requiring significant measures to create a safe educational community. UAB is using GuideSafe™ Event Passport to manage entry to campus classes, events, conferences and meetings to keep our campus healthy and limit the spread of the virus.

UAB is using GuideSafe™ Event Passport to facilitate access to classrooms, meetings, events, or facilities having ten or more people. Attendees, including faculty, staff, and students, will complete UAB Healthcheck, a COVID-19 assessment tool, prior to entering their event. An Event Passport is issued based on factors from your daily risk level as assigned by the UAB Healthcheck. After you have completed Guidesafe™ Healthcheck, press the “Passport” button to get your passport. This passport is good for 24 hours. Each user is assigned a unique passport number indicating their status for the upcoming event that will show a “Clear” screen or “Not Clear” screen. A clear passport will be required to enter classes, meetings, the library and other events on campus.

The UAB GuideSafe Hotline — 205-934-SAFE (7233) — has been established to give employees and students a single source for answers to common COVID-19 questions about testing, exposure, Healthcheck, isolation and more, including troubleshooting technical questions about the GuideSafe Exposure Notification App and UAB Healthcheck.

How to Access GuideSafe™ Event Passport

GuideSafe™ Event Passport is available after you have completed GuideSafe™ Healthcheck. After you have completed Healthcheck, press the “Passport” button to get your passport.
