    With the fall term underway, Queen’s is reminding members of the campus community to download or update SeQure, the university’s mobile safety app, and use it to complete a COVID-19 self-assessment questionnaire before coming to campus.

    Faculty and staff are required to use SeQure. Students, contractors and service providers, visitors, and volunteers should conduct a daily self-assessment before they attend university property. They are encouraged to use SeQure to complete their assessment questionnaires. Alternatively, they can use the Ontario government self-assessment tool.

    “Regular health screening will help us to ensure that we are keeping our community safe as we return to campus,” says Kim Murphy, Executive Director, Risk and Safety Services. “The SeQure app provides users with a quick and simple way to complete this screening before coming to campus in order to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19.”

    The assessment questionnaire focuses on symptoms, travel, and potential exposure to the virus.

    If the app indicates it is safe to proceed, users will see a ‘green badge’ appear with a QR code, which will expire after 24 hours. After that time, users will need to take the assessment again before coming to campus. Athletics and Recreation (A&R) will be actively checking for valid QR codes on SeQure to grant admission to the Athletics and Recreation Centre and all A&R programs, whether they are indoor or outdoor.

    For those without a cell phone or tablet, a web version and a document version of the assessment are also available.

    The COVID assessment feature of SeQure is updated periodically. Users should ensure they have the latest version by checking for updates in the “About/Preferences” section of the app.

    SeQure also provides quick access to Campus Security and Emergency Services resources, including the campus security emergency line, and student government services such as AMS Walkhome.

    To download the SeQure app for iOS or Android, visit the Campus Security website, or search for it on your device’s app store.
