DawgCheck: Commit to a Healthy Campus

Effective August 10, 2020

The University of Georgia is committed to the health and safety of our campus and our community. Immediate self-reporting is critical to helping us assess and respond to risks and exposures on campus. That’s why we’ve created DawgCheck: an easy-to-use, COVID-19 self-screening tool.

With DawgCheck, track symptoms related to COVID-19 before coming to campus and report a positive COVID-19 test. No symptoms? Great! But we still ask that you respond through DawgCheck before visiting campus. COVID-19 carriers can be asymptomatic, so using the DawgCheck tool before every visit is crucial to help us be proactive in stopping the spread.

If you test positive for COVID-19 within 10 days of visitng campus, we ask that you report your test results through DawgCheck to facilitate contact tracing. 

Access DawgCheck through the UGA app or online at dawgcheck.uga.edu.

If you are a visitor to campus, scroll down to the section For Individuals without a MyID Account to check for symptoms or report a positive COVID-19 test.
