The University has developed a Symptom Checker application to promote your own health & safety and to improve awareness of the symptoms of COVID-19. It is strongly recommended that you use the application on a daily basis. It is available for use via your browser and also within the Loyola mobile app. Information on how to download and use the Loyola mobile app can be found here.
Using the Symptom Checker, students, faculty, and staff are asked to check for any symptoms they have in the morning daily. Depending on their symptoms, the app will provide a RED, YELLOW, or GREEN sign indicating how the user should proceed.
At this time, the CDC has identified that COVID-19 symptoms may include one or more of the following:
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- A fever of 100 degrees Fahrenheit or greater
- Chills and shakes
- Runny nose or new sinus congestion
