Via Healthcare IT News

“Among the skills are a COVID-19 self-assessment tool, which helps users assess symptoms and determine whether they’re candidates for testing.” 

“It also offers guidance on when to seek medical care and what to do in the meantime, with information based on Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines and Mayo Clinic expert opinion.”

“Before users can access its features, they must first enable the skill on an Alexa-equipped device by saying, ‘Alexa, open Mayo Clinic Answers on COVID-19.’ After that they can ask questions about COVID-19, such as ‘What are the symptoms of coronavirus?'”
