Coronavirus screen with symptoms

This assessment will determine your risk of being infected with the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) first identified in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China. This screening tool is based on the latest CDC (Centers for Disease Control) guidance*, and will be updated daily with any changes in their recommendations. Our physicians are available throughout the day to provide up to date advice.

Persons not at risk of infection with the Novel Coronavirus may still have flu symptoms, cough, hoarse voice, or sinus pain that can be treated. At this time, it is far more likely to have these other infections. This Coronavirus screen may include additional treatment recommendations. ($29)
