GU-Q #CampusClear


GU-Q has adopted a community-oriented approach that relies on both individual and collective commitment to practicing health and safety measures that are informed by public health guidelines.

Students, faculty, and staff who are coming to campus are asked to submit daily wellness checks for COVID-19 through #CampusClear (an app developed by in partnership with Creighton University and Stony Brook University) to help colleges and universities return to campus safely and make informed decisions about on-campus activity

#CampusClear Daily Survey

The app will ask about your symptoms, recent travel, and close contact with someone with a confirmed COVID-19 infection. The app was deliberately designed with privacy in mind, and as an additional precaution, the GU-Q daily self-screening survey does not require specific symptoms to be identified.
