ResponsiBLUE

Helping keep the community safe

ResponsiBLUE is a tool to help support campus health and safety by providing you with a quick daily symptom check for COVID-19.

Each day, all members of our campus community who enter campus buildings and facilities are required to use ResponsiBLUE to check themselves for COVID-19 symptoms by answering a brief set of questions. The tool offers advice on where to seek care if you are not well and provides visibility and insights into the state of public health at U-M.

ResponsiBLUE Guest

Before entering any U-M building, all visitors, contractors and vendors are required to complete a preliminary health screening via the guest version of ResponsiBLUE. The questionnaire includes information about U-M's face covering policy and expectations for unvaccinated individuals to continue to mask and distance while indoors on any of U-M's campuses.

What's in the App

Daily Screening Check (FOR STUDENTS & EMPLOYEES)

Brief set of COVID- 19 screening questions that are required to be completed daily prior to entering campus buildings and facilities. Individuals will either have a "COMPLETED" or "EXPIRED" status displayed on their screen at the end of the symptom check process.

COVID-19 Test Verification (FOR STUDENTS & EMPLOYEES)

Notes the date of the last COVID-19 test through U-M testing programs. All students and employees who are required to be tested weekly are responsible for ensuring they have the required green "Completed" COVID-19 test verification to be on campus as noted in this policy. Please note: It takes about 2 hours for Community Sampling and Tracking Program test information to show up in the App.

How to show you’re clear to enter campus buildings (FOR STUDENTS & EMPLOYEES)

COVID-19 Vaccination (FOR STUDENTS & EMPLOYEES)

Shows whether you have self-reported your vaccination information to the university via Wolverine Access by indicating "No Record," "Pending" (record verified but individual is not two weeks post final dose of the vaccine), or "Completed" (record verified and individual is fully vaccinated).

Fully vaccinated students no longer are required to complete weekly COVID testing and their COVID-19 testing box will be removed from ResponsiBLUE. Students with a "Pending" status are required to continue weekly testing until their fully vaccinated date is reached and their COVID-19 testing box is removed.

Individuals who receive an exemption to the vaccination requirement for medical or religious reasons will have their vaccination card removed and their testing box remain.

Quarantine & Isolation Indicator

The Quarantine & Isolation indicator box will appear for students and employees who have been placed into, or asked to, quarantine or isolate by U-M's Environment, Health and Safety department or the U-M Contact Tracing Corps.

The indicator will show that the individual is currently either in quarantine or isolation but will not specify which.

By clicking onto the Q/I indicator, which will read 'Required', ResponsiBLUE also will display the departure date of when the individual may discontinue their quarantine or isolation.
