About PennOpen Pass
The PennOpen Pass program is a daily symptom checker to reduce the risk of COVID-19 to the Penn community. After a one-time enrollment process, users complete a quick survey each day. If you have no symptoms and have not been in recent contact with someone who may have COVID-19, you get a Day Pass to enter Penn buildings. Otherwise, the tool will direct you to next steps.
The PennOpen Pass program is designed to lower the risk of COVID-19 spread at Penn by (1) identifying individuals whose health may be at risk and/or may pose health risks to others due to COVID-19, (2) ensuring that individuals at risk receive appropriate assistance and follow up, which may include COVID-19 testing, self-isolation, contact tracing, and medical care, (3) monitoring trends related to COVID-19 to ensure timely allocation of resources for campus health and safety.
The launch of PennOpen Pass is a critical step in the ongoing efforts to resume academic, research, and clinical activities while protecting the health of the Penn campus population. Faculty, staff, and students who are coming to campus buildings with any regularity will be asked to perform daily symptom checks using PennOpen Pass before the start of each day, regardless of whether they are reporting to campus on that particular day. Daily tracking is critical to reducing the spread of COVID-19 in our community as it will enable clinical staff and contact tracers to act quickly if COVID-19 is detected.
