Dear Students,

As you prepare to make your way to campus, we’ve created the Daily COVID-19 Health Check app, a quick and convenient way for you to monitor your health during your shelter-in-place period. This daily health check is required for all students preparing to travel to campus. It is an essential part of how we work together to keep you and other members of our community safe.

Students living in University housing are required to begin using the app on the first day of their shelter-in-place at home, and continue to use it throughout their travel to campus and pod week. Students living off campus must use the app every day during their 14-day shelter-in-place. If you begin experiencing  COVID-19 symptoms during this period, please follow the guidance on the app and contact your campus’s student health service. 

Using the app is easy. Use a web browser to visit and look for the thermometer icon. Simply log in using your Pitt credentials and answer two questions about how you are feeling and whether you have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. If you encounter technical difficulties with the app, please submit a help ticket to the Technology Help Desk. 

Completing your daily health check may be required for access to campus facilities, so don’t forget to start using it on the first day of your shelter-in-place period.  

As always, remember to wear a face covering when you are around people, practice social distancing where appropriate and wash your hands frequently.

Safe travels!
