When on campus, you will find QR location codes at the entrances to buildings, classrooms, offices and common spaces around campus. Using your smartphone camera, you can use the QR location codes to check in to locations across campus.

How to Use a QR Location Code to Check In

  1. Open your camera on your smartphone
  2. Hold your phone over the QR code
  3. Click on the website that appears at the top of the screen

You may be asked to log into to cuScreen so that you can be checked in to your location.

Scanning a QR Location Code From Within cuScreen

Alternatively, cuScreen has a feature built-in that will allow you to scan a QR code from within the website, provided you have previously scanned a QR location code.

  1. Log into cuScreen
  2. Scroll to your Location Journal
  3. Tap “Scan QR code to enter location”

This will open a QR code scanner with your phone’s camera.

You only need to “scan” the QR code with your smartphone camera at your final destination within a building. Your final destination is where you will be spending at least 15 minutes.

If you do not have a final destination within a building, but will be in the building for more than 15 minutes, you should scan the QR location code upon entry to the building.

If you do not have a smartphone, you can instead use a paper-based self-assessment and location log to document your location on campus.

Logging in to cuScreen from a QR Location Code

When using your smartphone, it is recommended that you log in to cuScreen and complete your COVID-19 screening self-assessment. If you are not currently logged in to cuScreen when you scan a QR location code, you will be taken to the Thrive Health log in page.

On the Thrive Health log-in page, you can log in using your Carleton MC1 credentials (@cunet.carleton.ca or @cmail.carleton.ca) or your visitor account.

If you are not currently logged in to cuScreen when you scan a QR location code, you will be prompted to log in via the Thrive Health log-in page.

cuScreen is supported by Thrive Health, a leading healthcare technology company.

How to Check Out of a Location

To check out of a location, log into cuScreen and navigate to your “Location Journal”. Under “Next Steps” or “Location Journal” you can click on the “Exit” button to check out of a location. Checking in to a new location will automatically check you out of your previous location.

What is a QR Code?

A QR (Quick Response) code is a two-dimensional barcode that is readable by smartphones. Using your smartphone camera or appropriate app, you can use your camera to “scan” the QR code to access a website and/or perform a function. For cuScreen, QR location codes are used to check you into locations around campus.

Privacy and Security

Location information is only accessible by the appropriate individuals within the university designated as health care coordinators (e.g., Health and Counselling Services, Environmental Health and Safety). The university does not actively track the location of individuals on campus.

All QR location codes are clearly identified as belonging to cuScreen through appropriate signage and will take you directly to the cuScreen system. All members of the university community are encouraged to report any signs that appear to have been modified to covidinfo@carleton.ca.
