People with these symptoms might have COVID-19:

Check your symptoms daily with the #CampusClear app

As part of Protecting the Pack, students and employees who are coming to campus are being asked to submit daily wellness checks for COVID-19 through #CampusClear, an app developed by Ivy.ai and Creighton University. Recent research has shown that daily self-reporting of symptoms, used along with campus policies and procedures, can have a meaningful impact on keeping our campus community safe. 

#CampusClear is a 1-question daily self-survey that takes less than 10 seconds to complete.

iOS (Apple)

Android

If you do not have access to a mobile device, you can use the Web Interface.

Each day, via the app, you will be presented with a single question. All you have to do is answer honestly. After you submit your answer, the app will either present you with a campus “FastPass” (your green light to come to campus, or if you’re living on campus, to leave your room) or inform you of the next steps you need to take.
