CHADRON – Chadron State College officials encourage all students and employees to download CampusClear, a free self-screening mobile application for symptoms related to COVID-19.

The app is straightforward and quick to use. CampusClear says it takes less than 10 seconds for individuals to conduct daily health assessments. The app gives educational guidance to users, resulting in a campus “FastPass” for those with no symptoms, or encouraging individuals who may be showing symptoms to stay home, contact local health care providers and CSC, or seek testing opportunities.

The app can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or Google Play. For those without access to a mobile device, a web app can be used. To sign up, users need to use their email address provided by Chadron State College. All user information is protected by Campus Clear and data that CSC receives will not be shared.

Once users sign up for the app, they should complete the health assessment daily. Any individual who has concerns about their health should contact their health care provider or the school nurse. Anyone experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, which include fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, body chills, headache, loss of taste or smell, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea should immediately contact their health care provider or the school nurse.

“It is important for everyone involved with CSC to use the CampusClear app,” said Vice President for Enrollment Management, Marketing, and Student Services Jon Hansen. “The app is simple to use and provides students and employees with solid information. The college will also be able to use the information collected to view trends or adjust our COVID-19 plan.”

According to its website, CampusClear is a partnership initiative between, Creighton University, and Stony Brook University that formed to provide a technological solution to the challenge of self-screening as a foundational strategy of the return-to-campus initiative. CampusClear is a free app built to help colleges and universities return to campus safely and make informed decisions about on-campus activity.

While CSC encourages all students and employees to use the free CampusClear app, there is a slight issue with the Health Log section. Individual users should disregard the Health Log section until has corrected the issue.
