Self Assessment Questions
As part of the screening, you will be asked questions such as:
- Are you feeling well today?
- In the past 24 hours have you experienced any of these symptoms?
- Was your temperature today above 100 degrees Fahrenheit or 37.8 degrees centigrade?
- In the past 14 days have you had close contact with a person who is known to have or is suspected of having COVID-19 ?
- In the past 14 days, have you been tested for or diagnosed with COVID-19?
- Are you currently under quarantine for possible exposure to COVID-19?
Frequently Asked Questions
A close contact is defined by the CDC as someone who was within six feet of an infected individual for a total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period. A suspected case is defined as an individual with symptoms potentially consistent with COVID-19 who is awaiting testing.
If you made an error and submitted your self-assessment, you can retake the assessment to correct your question. The latest daily assessment will be used to create your QR code; however, multiple entries will be tracked. During the self-assessment, you can also select the “Go Back” feature to return to a previous screen and select a different answer.
