AHS has launched an updated COVID-19 assessment tool. 

The sheer number of Omicron variant cases is putting pressure on numerous systems.

The increase of volume on Health Link has prompted a need for an updated assessment tool to help people manage their symptoms. 

The COVID-19 Assessment & Testing Tool will help Albertans assess their symptoms and determine if they should talk to a professional healthcare member about their situation.

The tool can be used to help people who have tested positive to re-assess symptoms whether they change or get worse and if more care is needed. 

The link will also provide self-care tips to manage mild COVID-19 symptoms at home.

Additionally, it will help people to know if they are eligible for a PCR test. 

The tool has been updated to pertain to all age groups from adults to youth and children.
