Patient Screening Questions From MDA

1.  Do you/they have fever or have you/they felt hot or feverish recently 
(14-21 days)?

2.  Are you/they having shortness of breath or other difficulties breathing?

3.  Do you/they have a cough?

4.  Any other flu-like symptoms, such as gastrointestinal upset, headache 
or fatigue?

5.  Have you/they experienced recent loss of taste or smell?

6.  Are you/they in contact with any confirmed COVID-19 positive patients? Patients who are well but who have a sick family member at home with COVID-19 should consider postponing elective treatment.

7.  Is your/their age over 60? 

8.  Do you/they have heart disease, lung disease, kidney disease, 
diabetes or any auto-immune disorders?

9.  Have you/they traveled in the past 14 days to any regions affected 
by COVID-19? (as relevant to your location)

Positive responses to any of these would likely indicate a deeper discussion with the dentist before proceeding with elective dental treatment.
