About the Daily Screener

All NYU students, faculty, employees, affiliates, visitors, and vendors approved to enter NYU academic and administrative buildings are required to complete a daily questionnaire prior to leaving for campus, called the Daily COVID-19 Screener for Campus Access, via NYU Mobile or on a computer.

This brief set of questions is most easily answered on a smartphone through the NYU Mobile app (Apple and Android). If you cannot use NYU Mobile—ex. lack of a smartphone—you can complete the screener online.

Campus visitors must be approved to enter NYU buildings and should follow these instructions.

After completing the Daily Screener, you will receive either a green “PASS” to enter an NYU building or red “FAIL” and be directed not to enter an NYU building. This confirmation will be emailed to you and must be presented to the Public Safety Officer at the building entrance, either on your phone's screen, tablet, laptop, or in printed form.

Do not proceed to campus if you do not receive authorization.

Access to the Daily Screener

To access the Daily Screener students, faculty, and employees must have obtained and received the results of a Binx or NYU BioReference COVID-19 test within the prior 14 days. Those in the NYU community who have not been tested and received results through Binx or BioReference in the previous 14 days will not be able to complete the Daily Screener – thereby not being permitted to enter NYU buildings.

Visitors, vendors, and affiliates must also attest to having received a negative PCR diagnostic text within the prior 14 days. Those that have not will not be permitted to complete the Daily Screener and will not be able to enter NYU buildings.  Learn more on the Campus Visitors page.

Your Testing and Building Access Status

NYU students, faculty, and employees who have completed COVID-19 testing through NYU will now be able to view your testing and building access status within the Daily Screener.  Those who have not tested through NYU will not see status information and, therefore, do not have access to complete the screener. 

After successfully entering your NetID and password, you will be presented with a status screen.  You can view this status screen at any time.  If you wish to check your status but do not need to complete the Daily Screener simply close the Daily Screener when you are done viewing your status.

Visitors, vendors, and affiliates will not see this testing and building access status.

Need Help?

  • Any employee who has difficulty completing the Daily Screener at home, before they leave for work, should contact their HR Officer. Students, contact studentlink@nyu.edu.
  • Visitors, vendors, or affiliates having difficulty completing the Daily Screener should contact the Extended Community Support Team.
  • Please Note: Do not take the Daily COVID-19 Screener for Campus Access unless you intend to enter a NYU facility for the day.

  3. Do not proceed to an NYU building if you do not receive the green "pass" authorization.
Screener status: pass

Show the Public Safety Officer your date-stamped green "pass" email.

Screener status: fail

Do NOT go on site; a member of the COVID-19 Prevention & Response Team will reach out to you.

Compliance

Entering an NYU building without having first successfully completed the Daily Screener could result in your card being deactivated, barring you from entering NYU facilities.

  • On your first violation, you will receive an automatic email informing you to complete the Daily Screener before entering any NYU building or risk losing building access;
  • The second instance will result in your ID card being deactivated. You will then be unable to enter academic and administrative NYU buildings until your contact your school’s HR officer (for school administrators), school chief of staff (for faculty), unit lead (for other employees), or the Office of Student Conduct (for students).

As of January 25, the previous second non-compliance warning was removed.  A second violation now results in your ID card being deactivated.
