How does the COVID symptom checker work?

This COVID-19 virtual symptom checker will let you know in less than 1-2 minutes if you have any of the typical COVID-19 symptoms. 

This screening tool is based on typical COVID-19 symptoms reported by the CDC. Not all people with COVID-19 have symptoms, and typical symptoms can range from mild symptoms to severe illness. Symptoms usually may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. This screening tool focuses on the most common symptoms, not all possible symptoms.  

The New Model of Prenatal Care in the Age of COVID-19

Never before living in a reality where a simple trip to see family or a ride on the subway has become a health hazard, our new normal during the Coronavirus pandemic is a jumbled mix of restrictions. We are finding new ways of doing simple tasks, albeit mixed with a lot of fear surrounding it all.

Because of slightly different temperature cutoffs, this checker is intended to be used by those age 11 to 65 years old. Those under 11 years old or over 65 years of age have somewhat lower average temperature cutoffs. This means that someone under 11 or over 65 will have an elevated temperature slightly below those in the 11 to 65 years age range.

How does Coronavirus (COVID-19) affect pregnancy?

In general, pregnancy is a time of low immune function, meaning that pregnant women are usually more susceptible to illness and infection than non-pregnant women. However, there has not been any hard evidence suggesting that Coronavirus is more easily transmitted during pregnancy.

Other groups with low immune function that are at high-risk for COVID are older people, those with diabetes, heart disease, HIV infection, or high blood pressure, and anyone who has long-term use of immunosuppressive agents.
