Symptom Checker Tool Available for Community

Date: 10/02/2020

We’re always trying to make healthcare work a little better for the people we serve. With that in mind, we are offering an online tool to help make the COVID-19 screening process go a bit quicker as you enter Northern Light Inland Hospital or our medical practices.

It’s called “Symptom Checker” and it can save you some time in line because you answer the screening questions online as you arrive instead of our staff asking you the questions (we’ll still do a temperature check). You can access Symptom Checker from your smartphone and complete the three-question screening as you head into our locations. You may choose to save the website to your favorites so you can easily access it for future visits.

It’s simple! Go to the website (covid.northernlighthealth.org/covidcheck) and answer the questions. Depending on your answers, it will give you a green screen to proceed or a red screen to stop and call our Screening Hotline for further direction. If you get a green screen, simply show it to us and we won’t need to ask you the screening questions.

Symptom Checker does not capture or store any personal health information, the web browser acts only as a calculator showing the results based on the answers you provide. This new tool is not required to be used at our entrances, it’s just another option to try and make the screening process a little quicker for patients and visitors.
