COVID care self-checker
If you suspect or have learned you are positive for COVID-19 and you're unsure what kind of care you may need, you can use the Queensland Government's COVID care self-checker. It is a clinical self-assessment tool designed to help you understand what healthcare you may need based on your symptoms and other risk factors. Once you complete the form, you'll be presented with recommended next steps and self-care information.
To prevent the spread of COVID-19:
- Stay home if you are sick
- If you have any COVID-19 symptoms, no matter how mild, get tested
- Stay 1.5 metres away from other people—think two big steps
- Wash your hands with soap and water, or hand sanitiser
- Leave a location if it is crowded.
If you have any concerns about your health, contact your doctor or contact 134 COVID (134 268).
