Valley Medical Center
Employee Health Symptoms Survey
This survey is only for Valley employees with new symptoms or a COVID+ exposure.
NOTE: If you came here by accidentally clicking "I DO have these symptoms" on the daily COVID attestation pop-up but you do NOT actually have COVID symptoms then you may close this window without completing the survey.
After completing this survey, Employee Health will contact you same day if your survey is completed Monday through Friday, between 7:00am-4:00pm, and will respond to completed symptom surveys on the next business day if completed outside of those hours.
If you develop symptoms of COVID-19 and your symptoms require testing per the Fit for Duty guidelines (link), please seek rapid antigen testing and follow your department’s process for calling out sick as needed. A rapid antigen test is now the preferred method of testing for COVID-19. Since those results are available in 15 minutes or less, testing does not qualify for Paid Administrative Leave. Positive tests should still be reported to Employee Health; they will communicate with you about when you are cleared to return to work. Employee Health is open Monday through Friday, 8 AM to 4:30 PM, apart from VMC’s recognized holidays.
With a negative antigen test you can return to work if you meet the following criteria:
- Fever free for 24 hours without the use of medicines
- No uncontrolled cough
- No uncontrolled nasal secretions
- No active vomiting or diarrhea
