The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) launched new online tools to help Spanish-speaking North Carolinians to determine if they should consider being tested for COVID-19 and help individuals monitor their symptoms if they have tested positive for or been exposed to COVID-19.

 

The new online tools are intended to help people know if they may need a test, how to get a test and how to monitor their own symptoms if advised to do so. These tools include:   

  • Check My Symptoms (Comprobar Mis Síntomas) (https://ncdhhs-covid19-dtra.powerappsportals.us/es-ES/), a public website that allows people to enter their symptoms to determine if they should consider getting tested for COVID-19. If a test is recommended, they will receive a link to a list of nearby testing sites via email or text.
  • Find My Testing Place (www.ncdhhs.gov/TestingPlace), a public website that allows people to enter their county or ZIP code and access a list of nearby testing site locations online. To view in Spanish, users can select Spanish in the yellow box. 
  • COVID-19 Community Team Outreach (CCTO) Tool, a password-protected online software that helps people track their own symptoms if they have been advised to do so by the COVID-19 Community Team.

Promotional Materials to Help Spread the Word

To help you get the word out, we have updated materials in Spanish available:

  • Flyers about getting tested for COVID-19 and using the Check My Symptoms online tool.
  • Facebook and Twitter images for you to share on social media.

 

You can find these materials at covid19.ncdhhs.gov/preventandprotect – scroll down to Check Your Symptoms. Additional resources are also available.

 

Thank you for your commitment to ensuring our communities are informed and supported.
