COVID-19 Screening Process
We ask that you help us take proactive steps to ensure a rapid and hassle-free screening process. We also ask that you assist your loved ones (parents, grandparents, spouses, significant others, and anyone else planning to attend the ceremony) in doing the same.
Attendees are reminded that masking and distancing are still required, regardless of screening results or of immunization status.
Option 1 (Preferred Option)
Download the 1-Check UNO app (for students, faculty, and staff) or the CheckCOVID app (for guests). Perform a screening on the app on the day of commencement and be ready to show your green “low” status with date/time stamp.
Alternatively, access the web-based version of the app, perform the screen, print the results, and bring those printed results to Baxter Arena.
The venue entrance is not the time or place for new users to familiarize themselves with the app. Take a few screenings in the days leading up to commencement to get comfortable.
