Thank you for visiting the Symptom Collector for the Erie County Health Department in Sandusky, OH. We're working with our local physician groups to collect this data, to give first responders, hospitals, cities, counties, states and health officials an early warning about symptoms you may be experiencing.
With this information, officials can ensure that testing and services are available where the need is greatest. Anyone, anywhere can report their symptoms using a mobile device or computer, all while staying safely at home.
We’ll start by asking for your permission to use the information you give us. Next the system will request your permission to automatically capture your location. Finally we will ask a series of questions about your current symptoms, and give you the option to record yourself coughing if you have a cough.
Thank you for your willingness to help local experts and officials defeat this dangerous virus.
Please Help. Tell us what symptoms you're experiencing so resources can be prioritized where the need is greatest.

How We Use Your Informationclose
Your data is used only to assist local, state and federal government officials and public health professionals to see where new cases of Covid-19 may be starting, so that they can prioritize their testing and medical resources to those places. Your data will never be sold, rented or exchanged with third parties. We do share your symptoms and general location with governments and health officials, but we do not share your contact information or other pieces of information that can identify you individually.
