Southwestern University is investing in a mobile health-screening app that will help individuals and the University monitor the health of our campus community. The mobile app (WorkSafe) is designed to help us maintain a healthy campus environment and remain in the classroom. The app has several helpful features, including a daily proactive self-health check and the ability to ask questions or address health and safety concerns related to COVID-19 on campus. Faculty, staff, and students will each check in on a daily basis and be advised to proceed to class or work or to seek medical attention.
