CDC is retiring the Coronavirus Self-Checker webpage on October 7, 2022. Refer to the COVID-19 symptoms page for information on when to seek COVID-19 testing and medical care.
The Coronavirus Self-Checker is an interactive clinical assessment tool that will assist individuals ages 13 and older, and parents and caregivers of children ages 2 to 12 on deciding when to seek testing or medical care if they suspect they or someone they know has contracted COVID-19 or has come into close contact with someone who has COVID-19.
The online mobile-friendly tool asks a series of questions covering topics such as isolation and quarantine, vaccination status, symptoms, test results, exposure, underlying medical conditions, etc. Based on the user’s responses, the tool then provides information about interpreting test results and when to quarantine and isolate, as well as recommended actions and resources.
Health departments and healthcare systems can add the Coronavirus Self-Checker to their own websites in two easy ways:
Instead of redirecting users to CDC’s website, you can add the Coronavirus Self-Checker widget to your website. There, you can pair it with valuable information on seeking medical care specific to your area or healthcare system. The widget is customizable and easy to use – just select your preferences and use the code provided to embed the widget into your website.
Does the widget not fit your website? Looking to add area- or healthcare system-specific information directly into the Coronavirus Self-Checker’s responses? Use CDC’s code and algorithms to build your own self-checking tool in a way that works within your website and fits the needs of both you and your communities.
