USC is working on a plan to make sure only healthy students, staff and faculty are on campus when in-person classes resume again in August.
It's testing a COVID-19 symptom tracker called "Trojan Check."
USC Chief Health Officer Sarah Van Orman tells KNX people will have to log onto a website or app on their phones to answer questions about symptoms and exposure before they head to campus each day.
"If they answer yes to any of those questions, then they are given directions on how not to come to campus and where to go to get additional testing or medical care," she told KNX 1070 News. 
If a student is healthy, they'll see a page with a Q-R code to confirm they can head to class.
Van Orman says the data will allow USC Student Health to know which areas of campus are being exposed.
She says personal names will not be traced.
