The Coronavirus Self-Checker is an interactive clinical assessment tool that can help people aged 13 and up, as well as parents and caregivers of children aged 2 to 12, decide when to seek testing or medical care if they fear they or someone they know has contracted COVID-19 or has been in close contact with someone who has.
