#CampusClear is a daily, one-question, anonymous self-screener and “fastpass” for students, employees and visitors.
#CampusClear is a free app built to help colleges and universities make informed decisions about on-campus activity. It does not provide medical advice, guidance, or diagnoses. CampusClear is a partnership between Ivy.ai, Creighton University and Stony Brook University that was formed to provide a technological solution to the challenge of self-assessment as a foundational strategy of the return-to-campus initiative.
Ratings and Reviews
The concerns posted in other reviews are completely reasonable. By the time most college students would show any symptoms, they would already have been able to spread the virus. If any symptoms are related to other conditions, there is no way for anyone to indicate that in the app. So the only alternative is to put no symptoms, which seems like it would hinder any tracing the university tries to do in the future. It’s providing the campus, students, and parents with a false sense of security.
However, the app does work as it was designed. I’ve had very little issues aside from it crashing every once in awhile when it was first released.
I don’t care for this app either, but most of you clearly haven’t even used the **** thing. You’re all just commenting your stupid political views about whether colleges should even be open or arguing that this isn’t science. This is not a way to determine for certain whether or not you have a virus. It’s just meant to make you stop and think. The questions literally say “NEW shortness of breath NOT explained by already known medical or physical conditions”. If you have asthma, allergies, muscle and joint issues, or anything in-between, you’re fine. Y’all would know that if you downloaded the app.
For functionality purposes this app works fine. Does exactly as intended. No more, no less. Prompts the user to answer whether they have any known symptoms of the virus while making it clear that if you have those symptoms due to some other issue you are already aware of you do NOT mark them. This won’t exactly prevent the spread of it or anything but the app works.
it asks if i am having different “new or worsening symptoms” that could be related to covid. news flash, i’m having new/worsening cough, sore throat, etc. because ragweed just started blooming. in order to come to class, millions of people will have to lie on this app, otherwise, we will have to quarantine because of a headache or something.
This is a problem because most people who have covid symptoms are dealing with something else in their lives:hormones, allergies, stress, pre-existing conditions. Most people, when they start to get sick, write it off as something else. So either we assume we’re not sick, possibly spreading covid to others, or we assume we are based off the app’s quiz, which means quarantining regularly enough to lag behind on work and being isolated in one’s dorm
On the second day, the app already doesn’t work(says “there is no rule matching the symptoms”) so how are we going to use this daily?
