  • In the last 2 weeks prior to symptoms, have you had close contact with anyone with a suspicion or confirmation of coronavirus?
  • In the last 2 weeks prior to symptoms, have you been in any location, including countries, cruise ships, communities or public gatherings where there is a reported active transmission of coronavirus? 
  • Have you tested positive for coronavirus and asked to quarantine? If so, please inform the ambulance crew so they can proceed to don appropriate PPE prior to patient contact
