Campus Shield COVID-19 Assessment App
You can download the app here:
In addition to its regular emergency features – ability to request a safety escort, send anonymous tips and receive campus alerts -- Campus Shield now has a COVID-19 self-assessment tool, which allows the user to screen for symptoms of the virus.
The COVID-19 self- assessment is easy to complete: just answer a few questions related to any COVID-19 symptoms you may be experiencing. If you give symptom free answers, the app issues you a green badge that remains active for 24 hours. This can be shown to an instructor or supervisor who may inquire.
If the user reports symptoms, the app will pause the assessment and provide instructions for follow-up care. Please do not visit or move about the campus until you’ve been formally screened by a nurse or doctor.
A daily assessment must be completed. Results are completely confidential. The only data provided to AU is how many people have downloaded the app, completed daily screenings, and how many received a green badge or were instructed to get screened.
The enhanced Campus Shield is yet another step we’re taking to mitigate the threat of COVID-19 on our campus as we aim to be “Stronger Together, Safer Together”.
