At SIU, a computing professor and two of his students are hoping to make it easier for people to know if they’ve been exposed to the coronavirus.

Koushik Sinha is an assistant professor at the School of Computing. He and two graduate students, Zachary Vanscoit and Sai Shanmukha Narumanchi, are building the tool, along with a collaborator in Australia.

Sinha said the virus contact map would use GPS data already gathered by people’s phones. It could be used by the general public and public health officials who are trying to trace the spread of the novel coronavirus.

SIU Trustees and administrators say they're doing the best they can to respond to COVID-19's effects on the university, as well as plan for numerous future scenarios.
