Note: A few of the listed symptoms may occur with pre-existing medical conditions, such as allergies or migraines, that have been diagnosed by a health care practitioner. In those cases, individuals should only answer “yes” if symptoms are new or worsening.
Note: Close contact is defined by DOH as being within 6 feet of an individual for 10 minutes or more within a 24-hour period, starting from 2 days before their symptoms developed or if asymptomatic, 2 days before they were tested. Close contact does not include individuals who work in a health care setting wearing appropriate, required personal protective equipment.
