This document is for health and residential aged care settings considering monitoring for symptoms. Health screening for health and aged care workers for symptoms of COVID-19 in these settings may be used as one of the measures to detect and prevent outbreaks.

It is part of the Series of National Guidelines, which have been developed in consultation with the Communicable Diseases Network Australia and endorsed by the Australian Health Protection Principle Committee.

These guidelines capture the knowledge of experienced professionals, built on past research efforts. They give advice on best practice, based on the best available evidence at the time of completion
