COVID-19 Screening Tool

Still not sure where you stand? The Centers for Disease Control worked with Apple to create a screening tool to help you understand what to do next about COVID-19. 

COVID-19 Screening Tool

Having Symptoms? Self Isolate. 

Anyone with symptoms of COVID-19 should self-isolate for 14 days to avoid potentially exposing others. Remember, the symptoms of COVID-19 are not your usual runny nose and sneezing. Instead, COVID-19 symptoms include a fever of great than 100.4, dry cough, and shortness of breath. Read more about symptoms from the CDC. Symptoms may appear in as few as two days or as long as 14 days after exposure to the virus. 

If you feel well, you do not need to be tested. If you do become ill, call your doctor before going into the office. Testing will be determined based on a risk assessment.
