However, we are unable to say whether you are having COVID-19 symptoms or it is due to other causes. We would encourage you to answer this quiz on Risk Assessment for COVID-19 to evaluate their health status in regards to this disease. After completing this quiz, you will be classified into several categories. Further instructions will be given at the end of the quiz. Please act accordingly.
Meanwhile try to maintain physical distance between close friends and family members. You may also click on this link to directly request a COVID-19 screening test.
