uinnipiac has introduced a mobile app that makes it easy to check for symptoms of COVID-19 and will be a key way of keeping our Bobcat family healthy and safe.
The QU Symptom Checker delivers three key benefits to help prevent the spread of COVID-19:
- Makes it easy for you to monitor your own health based on a daily logging of potential symptoms commonly associated with the virus.
- Helps you make informed decisions on what to do if you’re experiencing symptoms.
- Provides contact information, key resources and the latest QU updates on COVID-19.
All students, faculty and staff are required to check their symptoms daily using the app, giving the university an important early detection system to help identify possible COVID-19 cases. Users’ personal information is not shared, and only representatives of Student Health Services and Quinnipiac Human Resources will monitor the symptom-tracking dashboard and will direct ill students, faculty and staff on immediate next steps to take. The app only monitors self-reported symptoms; it does not capture any other information from users.
