COVID-19 Symptom Collector and How to Use It
The City of Jackson is thankful for the residents’ willingness and commitment in helping local experts and officials defeat COVID-19. Before going to the doctor or calling, the residents are asked to report their symptoms to Symptom Collector, if possible.
Symptom Collector is a web resource, an online program, created to give first responders, hospitals, cities, counties, states and health officials an early warning about symptoms individuals may be experiencing.
With this information, officials can ensure that testing and services are available where the need is greatest. Anyone, anywhere can report their symptoms using a mobile device or computer, all while staying safely at home.
If you choose to use Symptom Collector, you will first need to give your permission for the system to use the information you provide. Next, the system will request your permission to automatically capture your location. Finally you will be asked a series of questions about your current symptoms, and given the option to record yourself coughing if you have a cough.
Thank you for your willingness to help local experts and officials defeat this dangerous virus.
