2. Have you or anyone you have been in close contact with been diagnosed with COVID-19, or been placed on quarantine for possible contact with COVID-19?

3. Have you been asked to self-isolate or quarantine by a medical professional or a local public health official?

If you answered YES to any of the above questions, STAY HOME, contact your supervisor, and consider getting a COVID-19 test (call 617-287-5660 to book an appointment at UHS).

We ask that employees use their best judgement when reviewing the questions. We understand that some individuals have chronic conditions, such as migraines or allergy-related coughs, that have symptoms captured on the checklist. If you have such a condition and feel that a YES response on the checklist is related to your chronic condition rather than COVID-19, you may come in but are advised to be surveillance tested regularly.
