KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The University of Missouri - Columbia announced Thursday that all students, faculty, staff and visitors will have to verify they’ve completed their required daily health check-in before entering some buildings.

The university began requiring the daily check-in through the Campus Clear app in August when students returned to campus.

People will have to show their "Good to Go!" screen or be checked for symptoms before entering the campus recreational center and Ellis Library on the campus.

“We want to thank our campus community for their diligence in helping Mizzou curb the number of active COVID-19 cases,” Mark Diedrich, UM System director of emergency management, said Thursday in a press release. “Taking a moment to monitor your own health and symptoms is an important step in preventing the spread of the virus among our students, faculty, staff and visitors. Checking in with campus community members."

The university said it will add additional locations in the coming weeks.
