UPDATE Jan. 21, 2021: Effective Monday, Jan. 25, 2021, faculty and staff will no longer be required to complete the health check app before entering a building on campus. Some exceptions will occur: University offices may still require staff to complete this step and faculty, staff and students who are in quarantine or isolation will be required to complete the app.
Thermal scanners remain in place for temperature checks, and all students, faculty or staff who lack the authority to be on campus—or any Pitt affiliates who are supposed to be in quarantine or isolation—will not have swipe access to enter campus facilities.
Those with Pitt credentials who are required to complete the app can do so by logging in through the My Pitt portal. Look for the gold and blue thermometer icon on the My Pitt homepage or check at the top of the page in the Pitt Mobile app to complete the brief daily check. Visitors, guests and members of the public can complete the health check online.
It’s easy to do and takes less than 30 seconds: Just answer two yes/no questions about whether you feel any symptoms and if you’ve had any known exposure to COVID-19. These self-attestations only need to be completed once a day, if you’re coming to campus and before entering any campus building.
