  • #CampusClear

    As part of our comprehensive strategy for controlling the spread of COVID-19 on campus, we are deploying #CampusClear, a daily self-screening app and campus FastPass. Any student, employee or visitor that will be on campus is expected to complete the self-screening before arriving on-campus. This self-screening must be completed daily for any day that you expect to physically on-site at a SUNY Erie campus. When on-campus, you may be asked to show verification that the self-screening was completed.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How often do I need to complete the self-screening?
    #CampusClear is an important part of the extensive efforts we are taking to keep our community safe and healthy. For any student, employee or visitor planning to visit one of our campuses, you will need to complete the self-screening using the app, web version or using the telephone. The self-screening needs to be completed before you arrive on campus. If you are learning or working remotely, you do not need to complete the self-screening app.

    Why do I have to use #CampusClear?
    #CampusClear evaluates whether it is safe for you to be present on a SUNY Erie campus or whether you should stay at home.

    The app also builds a comprehensive picture of our community’s health, through your daily self-assessment answers. This will be critical in the event of a COVID-19 case at SUNY Erie. Should a COVID-19 case occur within the College, the information you have been reporting daily through #CampusClear may provide important data to assist in contact tracing efforts.

    I accidentally logged symptoms that I do not have and am not cleared for campus access. What should I do?
    If you are not cleared for campus access by the app after incorrectly submitting symptoms, you can logout of the app and then log back in to complete the survey a second time with accurate answers. To logout, go to the menu in the app, then click on "My Account" and "Logout." Then enter your SUNY Erie email address to sign back in and repeat the survey.

    Will the app remind me to take the self-assessment?  Am I able to change the notifications?
    We strongly recommend enabling notifications when you install the app, in which case you will receive an automatic reminder each morning at 6:30 a.m. (EST). This notification time cannot be changed.

    Please note that you may not proceed to campus until you have answered the daily question and have been instructed by #CampusClear that it is safe to do so.

    While the time of this notification cannot be changed, both Android and iOS allow you to customize notifications in various ways - for example, to set the notification to be silent so as not to wake you up. Check your device's advanced settings to edit your notification settings.

    I am having trouble installing the app. Who do I contact?
    Please contact the ITS Help Desk at https://helpdesk.ecc.edu, via email at helpdesk@ecc.edu or using the phone at 716-851-1835 during normal business hours.

    Who developed #CampusClear?
    #CampusClear, which was created by Ivy.ai, a leading developer of higher education artificial intelligence solutions, in partnership with Creighton University, SUNY Stony Brook and other collegiate partners. More than 1,000 colleges and universities have signed up to use the tool.

    Is my data private when using #CampusClear?
    The only information that the app or website collects is your email and survey responses. Your email address is encrypted and will only be accessible by a limited number of SUNY Erie administrators. This information will be only made available to support contact tracing or if the information is required by the Erie County Health department. The app does not use Bluetooth or GPS and does not track your location.

    I am experiencing a symptom or traveled to a quarantined area. What should I do?
    Users are only allowed on campus if they are experiencing none of the symptoms in the self-screening tool and have not traveled to a quarantined area as identified by New York State at https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/covid-19-travel-advisory

    If you are experiencing any of the symptoms, and have concerns, please call your healthcare provider. You should not return to campus if you are still experiencing symptoms.  In some cases, you may be required to quarantine or self-isolate for a period of time. If you have any symptoms that require emergency medical treatment, such as difficulty breathing, call 911 and notify them of your symptoms.

    For those that traveled to a quarantined area identified by NYS, you should remain at home until the quarantined period has passed.
