Penn State Go App Launches Coronavirus Symptom Checker

Penn State students can now complete daily coronavirus symptom checks using the Penn State Go mobile app, the university announced Monday morning.

The symptom checker runs students through a brief survey that asks them if they’ve come into contact with anyone who’s tested positive and if they’re exhibiting any coronavirus-related symptoms.

Enrolled students will need to sign in with their Penn State ID to access the feature. According to the university, students are strongly encouraged to complete the symptom checker before leaving home, using public transportation, or arriving on campus.

“As a Penn State community, all of us need to do our part to abide by the clear directives from our public health officials to avoid unnecessary interactions with others, and to follow the new procedures and guidelines for returning to campus this fall,” Vice President for Student Affairs Damon Sims said. “The only way we will be able to mitigate and contain the spread of COVID-19 is through individual commitment to our collaborative efforts.” 

Penn State released its all-in-one app on mobile devices in January and later expanded its services to Commonwealth Campuses this summer. The app compiles many student resources, including LionPATH, Canvas, and Office 365, into one location.
