The University will be using CoVerified, a comprehensive COVID-19 platform designed for college campuses, for self-attestation, health screening, test-result management, contact tracing, and monitoring COVID-19 viral transmission rates and trends on campus.
Suffolk University students, faculty, and staff will use CoVerified to monitor and report their daily health screenings and to complete a self-attestation that will facilitate access to campus buildings, including residence halls and University-sponsored hotels. All community members will be required to show their “green light” on the app to access buildings. This green light will automatically appear onscreen, stamped with the date and time, once a self-attestation is completed and an individual is deemed safe to proceed to campus.
Users can also schedule their COVID-19 tests through the app, and it will prompt anyone who tests positive to enter their close contacts.
The CoVerified app will include links to public health and governmental guidance, updated advisories, descriptions of COVID-19 symptoms, Suffolk’s COVID advisory website, and more.
Please note: the app will need to be downloaded from the App Store or from Google Play.
In addition, please note:
- You do not need this app if you do not plan to come to campus this semester.
- CoVerifed use will be necessary for all individuals who come to campus for any reason.
- Once downloaded, your status will default to restricted. You must complete a symptom check by clicking Report and answering the question.
- Your status will be restricted every day until you complete a symptom report. Your clearance will last through the entire day in which you report no symptoms.
If you have difficulty with:
- The initial download on your phone, download the app on your computer.
- The app’s functionality, click on the INFO tab, then APP SUPPORT, then describe your problem and hit submit.
- Scheduling a test for yourself, do not worry. There is no need to report this. The scheduling functionality is currently being worked on. Testing centers this week are open for drop-in.
We expect a fair number of inquiries over the next few days as people are engaging with these systems for the first few times. Please be patient. The individual who is most appropriate to address your question will do so as quickly as possible.
