September 4 California State University, Dominguez Hills introduced the next step in helping prevent the spread of COVID-19 through campus as they implemented the COVID-19 Self-Screening app for students.
As of the start of Tuesday Sept. 8 all students who will be taking in-person classes will be required to complete a daily COVID-19 Self-Screening for symptoms before entering school grounds or CSUDH property. Students who are dorming will be required to fulfill a daily Self-Screen at the beginning of each day.
The Self-Screening feature was added to the CSUDH mobile app “iToros”, where the Self- Screening module walks the students through a series of health-related questions that will evaluate if the student has any symptoms similarly identified with COVID-19 and determine if the student will be allowed to come onto CSUDH property.
Students, faculty, or guests upon opening the app will be immediately asked if they will be planning on visiting CSUDH. The screening tool is based on state and county guidelines associated with symptoms connected with COVID-19.
If people may have been exposed to or may have symptoms are advised through the app to call the CSUDH COVID-19 Reporting Hotline at (310) 243-2076.
