Symptom Checker & Testing

How It Works 

  1. Select your symptoms
  2. Get an idea of whether the symptoms you report suggest that you may have the COVID‑19 virus
  3. Choose a recommendation for how to move forward

This system is not intended for the diagnosis or treatment of disease or other conditions, including COVID-19 and is based on best clinical practices, CDC guidelines, illness severity, and risk factors like age and pre-existing conditions.

COVID-19 Testing  

Please use the Symptom Checker above to determine if testing is recommended. Testing may be available through your primary care provider, the Georgia Department of Public HealthCommunity Organized Relief Effort (CORE), or our Emory Healthcare Network affiliates Peachtree Immediate Care and MinuteClinic of CVS Health.

If your primary care provider is with Emory Healthcare, we encourage you to reach out to their office for evaluation and assistance.  

If you have mild symptoms that do not require immediate care and are unable to schedule a testing appointment, you should isolate yourself at least ten days after your symptoms start.

If you have been exposed to someone diagnosed with COVID-19, you should isolate yourself at home as much as possible for the fourteen days following your last exposure.  

If you need to leave your home to seek testing or medical care, please wear a face mask.  

Your Upcoming Surgery

Thank you for selecting us for your upcoming surgery/procedure. You have always known Emory Healthcare to deliver high-quality care and patient safety. And, in response to COVID-19, we are taking extraordinary steps to maintain these standards.

Below is what patients can expect:

  • Before your surgery/procedure, if anesthesia is planned, your physician will arrange for a COVID-19 test for you. 
  • We ask that patients self-quarantine between the date of your COVID-19 test and your procedure. If you must go out, wear a mask, practice social distancing, and wash your hands often.
  • If you exhibit COVID-19 symptoms prior to your procedure (such as fever, cough, fatigue, body aches), contact your provider right away. 
  • During all face-to-face interactions with your care team, you and anyone accompanying you to assist with registration will be asked to wear a mask. If you do not have one, one will be provided.
  • You are allowed to bring one person with you to drop you off and assist you during registration. Once registration is complete, your visitor will need to leave the facility.
  • No visitors are allowed to stay or wait inside the facility.
  • During check-in, we will confirm phone numbers to reach your family member(s), caregiver, or loved ones so we can provide updates. They will receive information about how to contact your care team as well.
  • Your physician and nurses will communicate with the identified person(s) by phone. Your nurse will coordinate your discharge plans and notify them when it is time to pick you up.
  • If you are admitted to the hospital following your procedure, your care team will maintain communication with one identified person of your choice.
  • Any belongings that you bring with you will be given to Security to be locked up and returned to you or an identified person at your request.

Please discuss any special needs with your care team. We are committed to ensuring you and your loved ones have the information you need.
