COVID-19 self-assessment tools

For the sake of everyone’s safety and to reduce the load on the health care system, automated screening tools should be among the first telehealth options to consider. Here are two COVID-19 self-assessment tools based on information from CDC: CDC Coronavirus Self-Checker and COVID-19 Screening Tool.

You can search online for additional telehealth screening tools. Many of these tools are free, especially if they are COVID-19 related, and some of them may guide you to a virtual visit online after your assessment. You can also check with your doctor, your employer, your health insurance company, or your state to see if they recommend any related solutions.
