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 the UNO Office of Health Security limit the spread of COVID-19.
SCREEN for symptoms daily and get connected with testing options
How an App Can Make a Difference
The 1-Check UNO app is more than just a symptom self-screener – it’s an important part of the university’s test-and-trace strategy and a 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 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. (Android availability coming soon)
If you are showing symptoms that could be a sign of COVID-19, the app quickly connects you with testing and support options. If you've tested positive, the app also connects you with a quick and easy-to-use reporting form to share your result with the Office of Health Security so they can offer you support; as well as conduct contract tracing to keep campus safe. You can also email the team at firstname.lastname@example.org.

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 keep campus safe.
Once you’ve made the switch to 1-Check UNO, it takes just three easy steps to download the app and promote campus safety.
