Note: Please remember to follow all safety measures in place including completing your Daily Fit for Work Screening even after you have been vaccinated.
If you are work restricted and/or tested positive and believe your COVID-19 infection was acquired from the workplace, consult the AHS Return to Work Decision Chart.
The COVID-19 Daily Fit for Work Screening Protocol provides guidance for workers in all AHS settings to minimize the spread of COVID-19. This includes all Alberta Health Services employees, members of the medical and midwifery staffs, students, volunteers, and other persons acting on behalf of Alberta Health Services (including contracted service providers and vendors).
By completing the questionnaire online before coming into work, as well as simple actions such as staying home when you are sick, physical distancing, continued hand hygiene, and continuous masking helps keep everyone safe and prevent the spread of COVID-19.

If you are unfit for work, instructions on next steps are provided.
Q: What if I made a mistake answering the questions?
If you make a mistake while completing the online questionnaire, please take the questionnaire again. It is important to answer the questions accurately to determine your fit for work status. Healthcare workers can't work when they aren't well.
Q: Why do I need to complete the questionnaire within two hours of my shift?
To ensure your fit for work status reflects your current situation before reporting to work, the status will expire after two hours. You can take the questionnaire again to refresh your status after it has expired.
While it is preferred that you take the online questionnaire before reporting to site, you can take the online questionnaire at any time. You have the ability to take the questionnaire up to two hours in advance.
Q: What if I don't have access to a mobile device or don't feel comfortable or know how to use the online tool?
If you do not have access to a mobile device, talk to your manager and use the method outlined by your leadership.
