More than 205,000 people have now used Intermountain’s online Symptom Checker. The elevated COVID-19 positive testing numbers in Utah over the past several days underscore the importance of remaining alert for COVID-19 symptoms.

The Symptom Checker is an easy-to-use, digital tool to help people get important information about COVID-19, assess their health symptoms for COVID-19 risk, and navigate to the most appropriate care setting. It uses a friendly AI-powered digital assistant, named Scout, to walk people through key questions related to their current health. The result is a clinical recommendation for how they should move forward to either treat their symptoms or get additional COVID-19 support or testing.

The Symptom Checker is available on every page on—click on the chat buddle toward the bottom right corner of the screen. The chat bot will open and be ready to answer questions.
