Overview

Currently, there are no recommended guidelines in place for the routine screening for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Some of the clinical and non-clinical features related to COVID-19 being used to screen suspected individuals are history of international travel, history of exposure to a confirmed COVID-19 case, fever, cough, fatigue, and shortness of breath.
