KCU Safety App and COVID-19 Self-Screening Information

Updated Dec. 20, 2021


In order to reduce the potential risk of exposure and prevent the spread of COVID-19, every day prior to entering campus, campus members must conduct a self-screen.

Using the KCU Safety App from your phone, tap on the Health Screen button. 

Screening questions will be as follows:

  1. Is your temperature greater than or equal to 100.0 degrees Fahrenheit today?

  2. Are you currently experiencing any of the following new symptoms, not attributable to another medical condition: headache, runny nose, sneezing, decreased or loss of smell or taste, fever, chills, cough, sore throat, difficulty breathing, respiratory illness, fatigue, muscle aches,  nausea, vomiting, diarrhea? 

  3. Have you been in close contact (within 6 feet for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more) with someone who has COVID-19?
    • If you are fully vaccinated and have had a close contact with someone with COVID-19, you can continue to access the campus while you await a response from Score 1. If you are not fully vaccinated, please wait for a response from the Score 1 team. 
    • Have you contacted Score 1 for Health about this exposure? 
  4. Have you tested positive for COVID-19 in the prior 10 days and/or are your currently experiencing COVID-19 symptoms? 

If the answer is “yes” to any of the questions, you have a Positive Screening. Instructions are below.

Screening Outcomes

If the answer is “yes” to questions 1, 2 or 4, you have a Positive Screening and will need to contact Score 1 for Health for guidance. If you answer "yes" to question 3, you can still access the campus as long as you also answer "yes" to question 3b and have contacted the Score 1 for Health team.  

Campus members with all negatives on the questionnaire will be cleared to proceed onto campus. Approval will come in the form of an approval screen (green checkmark and a date/time stamp - see image on right) upon the successful completion of the questionnaire; this is considered a Go screening outcome.

    • The approval screen should be screenshot by campus members prior to arriving on campus.
    • Students will need to display their approval screen on their mobile device when they arrive to the classroom or lab to be checked by faculty or fellows in that classroom or lab space.
    • Employees may be asked to display their approval screen on their mobile device at any time when they are on campus.
    • Being physically on campus without having evidence of a Go screening outcome may result in a conduct policy violation for employees and/or students and may be subject to disciplinary measures.
    • If approved for on-campus activities all campus members should continue to practice social distancing, proper handwashing and sanitizing exercises, and wear appropriate protective measures and PPE as directed.

Campus members with any positives on the questionnaire will not be cleared to enter campus and will be required to stay home; this is considered a No-Go screening outcome.

Individuals who receive a No-Go screening outcome will be directed to contact Score 1 for Health (1-877-425-0251) for additional dialogue and next steps.
