3 Steps 1 Check
Supporting campus health and safety during the COVID-19 pandemic is an important goal for all Maverick students, faculty, and staff.
While health measures such as wearing a face covering, washing your hands, and keeping physical distance from others are crucial, using the 1-Check UNO app daily – even when you don’t have plans to be on campus – helps limit the spread of COVID-19.
How an App Can Make a Difference
The 1-Check UNO app is more than just a symptom self-screener – it’s an important tool developed by UNO students and renowned UNMC researchers in direct partnership with Apple.
When you take one minute to check in daily on Apple iOS, Android, or the web-based version of the app, it allows the Office of Health Security to identify health trends based on the types of symptoms that are being reported and make plans to support campus health and wellbeing.
If you are showing symptoms that could be a sign of COVID-19, the app quickly connects you with testing and support options. The app also connects you with a quick and easy-to-use BRT form, where you can report a positive case.
Make the Switch to 1-Check UNO
If you have been a part of the UNO community since the Spring 2020 semester, you may already be using the 1-Check UNO app’s predecessor Check COVID (formerly known as 1-Check COVID). As a UNO student, faculty, or staff member it is important that you remove the old app and instead use the newly-released 1-Check UNO app.
While the original app was developed by the same team as its successor and has the same symptom screening functionality, the new 1-Check UNO app is improved in that it provides anonymous health reporting functionality used by the Office of Health Security to monitor campus safety.
Individuals visiting campus who are not a UNO student, faculty, or staff member are asked to download and use the Check COVID app for Apple iOS or Android prior to arrival. Visit the Fall 2020 Campus Guidance page for additional information about expectations for visitors.
