The GoCanvas app is customized for NOVA and uses approved health-related questions established by the Virginia Department of Human Resource Management (DHRM).
Self-screening is designed to reduce the spread of COVID19 within the NOVA community by allowing faculty, staff and students to evaluate any symptoms they have before arriving on campus.
We ask all NOVA students, faculty, and staff returning to campus to check their symptoms daily.
If you discover you have symptoms, STAY HOME! First call your doctor, and then email your professor to let them know.
No. Personally identifiable information and health information are not collected, stored in the app or shared by the College.
NOVA may view aggregated data to look for trends.
A contact tracing tool is typically a spreadsheet-based tool that allows state- and local-level public health officials and policymakers to compare three different contact tracing/monitoring strategies.
No. The app is not a contact tracing tool; it is a self-assessment tool for individuals who plan to come to campus. It is an opportunity to evaluate symptoms you may not realize you have. Virginia has released a contact tracing app named COVIDWise which is run by the health department.
