New health screening tool to help prevent further spread of COVID-19

The city of Rochester and Monroe County have partnered with Common Ground Health to roll out ROC COVID, an online symptom tracker for community residents. Developed by scientists and information technology staff at the University of Rochester Medical Center and Rochester Regional Health, the health screening tool may help prevent the further spread of COVID-19 throughout the region.

Available at, the online survey tool takes only seconds to complete. It consists of a few questions that residents are encouraged to answer daily, even when they have no symptoms. Questions include whether they have a fever, a cough, chills, or other primary coronavirus symptoms, as well as basic demographic information. Residents who participate will receive daily email reminders to take the survey.
