Posted on March 31, 2020 by Staff reports

Baptist Health Care now offers online assessment screenings for COVID-19 to determine if further diagnostic testing is needed.  

Anyone who is concerned about a possible exposure to COVID-19 or is exhibiting symptoms including fever, cough and shortness of breath can complete an initial online assessment screening using a smartphone, tablet or computer.

The online screening helps keep patients safe and reduces the risk of possible spread of the virus by limiting visits to a facility or clinic for the initial assessment.

The assessment screening begins at

The screening can also be accessed by texting “Screen” to 850.318.3080.

Once the online screening is completed, options for further preventative measures or screenings, if indicated, are offered. Those whose assessment indicates the need for further testing will receive a phone call from a Baptist Health Care team member who will schedule an appointment.

The online assessment screening is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. More information is available at
