New Everbridge Contact Tracer Apple App

We highly encourage all students, faculty, and staff to download this new app as it will aid with contact tracing, an extremely vital portion of our Safer Stetson plan. Our Stetson contact tracers work to develop a list of everyone they have been in close contact with during a certain period. The staff then contacts those people to let them know about their possible exposure so that they can take proper precautions. The app must stay open and run in the background (only 3%-4% battery usage per day) and will keep track of all close contact exposure events for 14-days. The GPS does not track you and reports remain anonymous. For Android users, there is no change. The contact tracing feature works with the original app. contact tracer

Off-Campus Testing

During the fall semester, Stetson students can get free rapid antigen testing at any CentraCare location. You must bring printouts of the two forms, found at the link below, when you visit the CentraCare location. You can make an appointment online – select the option for COVID-19 Testing Reservations. Results will be shared with Stetson Health Service and the Dean of Students Office to help provide support for COVID positive students.
