Magnus Mobile V2 App

Daily screening questionnaire

As described in A Guide to Reopening Our School, ECFS requires a daily screening for the signs and symptoms of COVID-19 and history of exposure to potential or confirmed cases of COVID-19. Students’ parents/guardians must complete a daily pre-arrival questionnaire administered through the Magnus Health app before their children depart for School.

The questionnaire will determine whether the student has:

  1. to the best of their knowledge, been in close or proximate contact in the past 14 days with anyone who has tested positive through a diagnostic test for COVID-19 or who has or had symptoms of COVID-19;

  2. tested positive through a diagnostic test for COVID-19 in the past 10 days or is awaiting the test results of a COVID-19 test from a test site other than the saliva test administered at the School (10 days measured from the date the individual was tested, not the date one received the results);

  3. experienced any symptoms of COVID-19, including a temperature of greater than 100oF, in the past 14 days; and/or

  4. traveled internationally to a CDC Level 2, 3, 4 or Level Unknown COVID-19 Health Notice country or to another state, non contiguous with New York, for more than 24 hours.

At the completion of the questionnaire each morning, you will receive a message with the student’s attendance instruction for that day. If you have more than one student, you will need to do a screening for each student every morning. You do not need to complete the screening questionnaire on the days in which your child is scheduled to learn remotely.

Face/Touch ID & Push Notifications

Based on your feedback, Magnus Health has been hard at work making improvements to the Magnus Mobile V2 Application. Earlier today, they released several updates to improve the overall user experience. To take advantage of the new features we recommend that users delete the old version of the app and reinstall the new release. Please be assured that the current version will continue to work even if the update is not installed.

You may now use Face ID / Touch ID to login to the application. Click here for instructions to enable Biometrics (Face ID / Touch ID) on Apple or Android devices with authentication enabled. For users who do not have devices with biometrics enabled, you can still use the operating system’s password keeper. Click here for Android and iPhone password keeper instructions. If you have previously added the Magnus app to the keychain for Apple iOS or Autofill Service for Androids, you will not need to do it again.

Push notifications are also now available. Click here for instructions to enable push notifications in your Magnus Mobile App.

Based on your responses, you will be prompted with instructions for your child to either report to school or remain home. If instructed to remain home, you must notify your attendance office at:
