The ResponsiBLUE application has been updated and expanded for the winter 2021 semester. U-M first launched ResponsiBLUE during the fall 2020 semester to contain the COVID-19 pandemic, aid in circulating public health knowledge, and ensure student safety.

University Information and Technology Services developed ResponsiBLUE in partnership with the university leadership and the Office of Research. The app, which can also be accessed via the web, was initially developed and released as a tool for symptom tracking. 

ResponsiBLUE has been updated this semester to track students’ mandatory weekly testing. It now displays a student’s testing status by noting a “COMPLETED” or “EXPIRED” status at the end of the symptom check process.
