About the Daily Screener

Members of the NYU community will be required to regularly complete a brief questionnaire, called the Daily COVID-19 Screener for Campus Access, via NYU Mobile or on a computer to be authorized to enter non-residential NYU facilities.

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

Campus visitors should follow these instructions.

After completing the daily screener, you will receive either a clearance to enter an NYU building (“Screener Status: Pass”) or 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.

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.
  • Please Note: Do not take the Daily COVID-19 Screener for Campus Access unless you intend to enter a NYU facility for the day.

Instructions

  • You should complete the survey before you leave for campus.
  • You will need a thermometer to take your temperature.
