Measures that may facilitate early identification of suspected COVID-19 cases include:

  • Posters, pamphlets, billboards or staff members outside and within the healthcare facility asking patients who fulfil criteria for a person under investigation (PUI) to identify themselves to healthcare workers as soon as possible (rather than remaining in line in a waiting area).

  • Including a screening questionnaire for COVID-19 as part of the standard triage form at healthcare facilities.
