Campus resource for daily self-monitoring

July 30, 2020

Dear SNC students, faculty and staff,

The St. Norbert College community has gone to extraordinary lengths to facilitate a safe return on Aug. 3 for faculty and staff and beginning Aug. 17 for students. The work to ensure the community’s safety will continue into the fall semester as each of us does our part to mitigate risk by self-monitoring for symptoms and following safety guidelines established by the college and local and state authorities.

Self-screening app
Each member of our campus community must self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 that would preclude coming to class or work. To help you conduct these daily self-screenings, the college has adopted the #CampusClear app. The app allows users to easily enter any symptoms they may be experiencing, then indicates if it’s safe to go to class or work. Users also may opt-in to receive notifications reminding them to conduct their daily self-screening. 

Participation in #CampusClear also will give St. Norbert College a mechanism for monitoring illness trends to manage emerging risks on campus. Students, faculty and staff can download the free app (available on the Apple App Store and Google Play), create an account using their @snc.edu email address, and submit the one-question survey each day they intend to be on campus. 

To learn more about #CampusClear, watch this short video. If you have questions about the app or have trouble downloading it, contact the ITS service desk at servicedesk@snc.edu.

Additional personal safety measures
While the #CampusClear app is an important resource for mitigating risks to our community, it is not our only tool. Those who are cleared to go to campus also must adopt the 3 W’s: Wear a mask, watch your distance and wash your hands.

Additionally, the #CampusClear app is not a substitute for talking with medical professionals if you are experiencing symptoms. Students must call Health Services or, if after hours, on-duty REH staff or Campus Safety. Faculty and staff should contact their health care provider and supervisor or divisional dean.

Community safety pledge reminder
If you haven’t already done so, please be sure to sign the community safety pledge before returning to campus. All faculty, staff and students received unique links to the pledge via their SNC email accounts. If you have questions about the safety pledge, please contact Carolyn Uhl at carolyn.uhl@snc.edu.

We continue to be grateful for your commitment to the well-being of all in our community.

Sincerely,
