COVID-19 Self-Assessment

Use this self-assessment tool to help determine whether you need to be tested for COVID-19 or if you would like to be voluntarily tested. You can complete this assessment for yourself or on behalf of someone else, if they are not able.

Testing will tell you whether you have COVID-19 at the time of your test, even if you are not showing symptoms. Testing will not tell you whether you have previously had COVID-19. It will also not tell you whether or not you have any immunity to COVID-19.

If your test result indicates that you do not have COVID-19, you must still practice physical distancing.

If you have questions about COVID-19 or novel coronavirus, please visit the following resources:

Do the right thing to stop the spread: Protect your loved ones by practicing physical distancing. We all have a role to play!

The COVID-19 test detects if the virus is in your nose or mouth. It is important that you understand what it means if your COVID-19 test is positive. By law, you must self-isolate for at least 10 days after the test, even if you do not have any symptoms. If you get any symptoms, you must stay in self-isolation for 10 days after your symptoms appear. Anyone who has been in close contact with you must also, by law, self-isolate for at least 14 days and watch for symptoms. Very rarely, the COVID-19 test is falsely positive. This means you do not have the virus and you cannot pass it to anyone. There is no way to tell if a false positive result is wrong.

By taking the self-assessment and asking for a test, you are acknowledging that you understand the information above.
