Symptom Checking with #CampusClear

Saint Louis University students and employees will use the #CampusClear app to complete daily self-screening symptom checks during the fall semester.

The symptom checker allows users to report if they are experiencing any of the 11 identified symptoms associated with COVID-19. Users are also asked if they have tested positive for COVID-19 or have been in close contact with someone who has. (Close contact is defined in the contact tracing section of our safeguards FAQs.)

Based on their responses, users will be cleared to attend class or come to campus or will be given guidance on what to do next. (Please note: The #CampusClear app is not intended to provide medical advice or diagnoses.)

Accessing #CampusClear

The #CampusClear app is free and available for both iOS and Android devices through the Apple App and Google Play stores. Search for #CampusClear, download the app and follow the prompts. Be sure to use your SLU Office 365 email address (firstname.lastname@slu.edu or firstname.lastname@health.slu.edu) for verification purposes. Please do not use any other email account.

If you don’t have a smartphone, #CampusClear offers an online version of the self-screening tool, which works similarly to the mobile app and follows the processes described above.
