County launches online virus screening tool for employees, visitors

Macomb County has launched a daily self-screening questionnaire for employees, vendors and members of the public wishing to enter county facilities.

The digital survey will ask for a name and contact information. It will also list COVID-19 symptoms and will ask respondents to check off what they may or may not be experiencing.

Immediate guidance on whether the respondent should enter a county building will be issued based on their reported symptoms. Information gathered from the survey will be kept confidential.

The self-screening questionnaire was developed to assist county leaders in keeping facilities safe and secure and in accordance with CDC guidelines and the governor's executive orders.

The goal is to prevent individuals with COVID-19 symptoms or a positive test from entering county buildings.

Employees, vendors and members of the public who wish to enter a county facility can access the questionnaire by visiting
