A targeted approach to testing for COVID-19 is being implemented in Alberta to help prioritize groups at highest risk of local exposure and at-risk populations. This approach is consistent with testing happening across Canada. Use this online Healthcare Worker Self-Assessment tool to help determine whether you need to be tested and to get additional advice on COVID-19, such as the need to self-isolate.
Testing will be prioritized for healthcare workers with respiratory symptoms. This self-assessment tool is for all healthcare workers that think they may have COVID-19 or may have been exposed to COVID-19.
As a healthcare team, you are already making a difference and saving lives. By using the self-assessment tool, you contribute to ensuring our healthcare teams stay healthy and safe to serve Albertans during this time.
