Datos Health Check App

What is Datos?

Datos is a smart phone app designed by Kaiser Permanente and used by Pacific University to help students and employees monitor symptoms and report illnesses. The app meets HIPPA regulations for privacy of healthcare information. Access to information submitted on Datos is limited to the individuals who monitor infection rates at Pacific and provide guidance for those experiencing symptoms.

All employees and graduate/professional students (including bachelor's level students in teaching or health professions programs outside the Forest Grove Campus) are expected to complete the daily Datos health survey before attending campus. Datos will either clear them to proceed or ask them to stay home, based on their answers.

Daily Clearance

After completing the daily survey on Datos, users will receive a green cleared badge, a yellow cleared caution badge, or a red not-cleared badge. 

Students must be able to show the green cleared badge or yellow cleared caution badge to their instructor or preceptor upon arriving on campus. The instructor/preceptor may check the date of the badge for verification.

Anyone who reports symptoms or close contact with a person who may have COVID-19 will receive a red not-cleared badge and will be instructed not to come to campus.

Caution and 'Not Cleared' Protocols

Protocols for individuals who receive a yellow caution badge or a red not-cleared badge depend on vaccination status. An individual is considered fully vaccinated 14 days after receiving the final dose of an approved vaccine or booster.

Fully Vaccinated and Boosted

Known Exposure: If you are fully vaccinated and exposed to someone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19, but you remain asymptomatic, you will receive a yellow cleared caution badge from Datos. You should be tested for COVID-19 three to five days after exposure. You will not need to quarantine and may attend campus while waiting for test results. Continue to wear a mask in public for 10 days or until testing negative. If you test positive, you will receive quarantine instructions. (CDC, July 27, 2021)

COVID-19 Symptoms: If you experience symptoms consistent with COVID-19, do not come to campus. You should isolate for five days and contact your primary care provider to be evaluated and determine if you should be tested for COVID-19. If you are fever-free for 24 hours and other symptoms are abating at the end of five days OR if you receive a negative test and symptoms are abating, you may request manual clearance to return to campus. Contact Rachelle Pugh at rachelle.pugh@sidneyhealth.com or 503-917-0685 or 888-928-3357, or use the red phone icon in the Datos app to be cleared. (Using the phone icon may trigger a pop-up asking if you want to make an emergency call. Don't worry: The number is a direct line to Datos, not an emergency number.)

Unvaccinated/Not Fully Vaccinated and Boosted

If you are not fully vaccinated and boosted and either experience COVID-19 symptoms or exposure, you will receive a red not-cleared badge. Quarantine for a minimum of five days and get tested for COVID-19. Continue to watch for symptoms for 10 days after exposure, isolate immediately.

Recent Positive

If you had a confirmed case of COVID-19 within the past 90 days and are exposed, you will receive a yellow cleared caution badge from Datos. You do not need to quarantine. Continue to wear a mask in public and watch for symptoms for 10 days. If you develop symptoms, isolate immediately and get tested.
