Harvard COVID Tech

by Harvard University Health Services

Harvard Health Services offers an array of options for you to help combat COVID-19 and keep the community safe. You can schedule Crimson Clear alerts --text or email reminders that you set to keep you on track with Crimson Clear. You can sign-up to share the last 14 days of your location information from your private storage with contact tracers at Harvard on a just-in-time, need-to-know basis, only accessed as relevant to a positive test result. You are notified if you are in close proximity to someone who tested postive. Your participation does not create or collect any new data. There is no separate app to download or use.
