#CampusClear Self-Screening App Installation

Creighton has collaborated with, an educational technology company, and SUNY Stony Brook to develop #CampusClear, a self-screening app that students, faculty and staff are encouraged to use as part of Creighton’s COVID-19 screening process. Creighton is requiring daily COVID-19 screenings for campus access through at least the first 30 days of the academic year, which begins Aug. 17. The University’s screenings involve a two-step process:

  • Complete the #CampusClear self-screening app
  • Get a temperature check at an on-campus COVID-19 Screening Station

For those who don’t have a smartphone, the entire process can be completed at the on-campus Screening Station. #CampusClear also has a web interface, which allows users to complete the self-screening online.

If you are not cleared to access campus or are feeling ill, please stay home or in your residence hall room and contact CoronavirusResponse [at] creighton [dot] edu
