What is a COVID-19 screening questionnaire form?

A COVID-19 screening questionnaire is a set of questions designed to identify individuals who may have symptoms of COVID-19 or who have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. The questionnaire typically includes questions about symptoms, recent travel, and potential exposure to COVID-19.

COVID-19 screening questionnaires can be used by healthcare facilities, employers, schools, and other organisations to help identify individuals who may need to be tested for COVID-19, self-isolate, or quarantine. The purpose of the questionnaire is to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 by identifying individuals who may be infected and taking appropriate precautions to limit their contact with others.

Depending on the situation, a COVID-19 screening questionnaire may be administered in person, online, or over the phone. It is important to ensure that the questionnaire is designed to collect accurate and relevant information, and that individuals are informed of the importance of answering the questions truthfully and to the best of their knowledge.
