For one of the questions on YU Screen, you will be asked:
[In the last 10 days, have you been identified as a “close contact” of someone who currently has COVID-19 (confirmed by a PCR or rapid antigen test)?]
Anyone working in acute care, caring for Clients with presumed or confirmed COVID-19, should use PPE while in close contact with clients. (MOH, 2019). If you are in clinical practice OR working and are in contact with a client with presumed or actual COVID-19 diagnosis AND you are wearing PPE, select “No”.
If public health AND/OR Employee Well-Being (EWB) or Case & Contact Management from the Division of Students has advised you that you do NOT need to self-isolate, select “No”.
