COVID-19 Screening Tool for Unaccompanied Children Program Staff and Visitors

OMB 0970-0543

OMB 0970-0543

The emergence of the COVID-19 infectious disease pandemic has necessitated action to help ensure unaccompanied alien children and program staff health and safety within the Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) Program. OMB originally approved a COVID-19 screening tool (“risk questionnaire”) for Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) program staff and visitors on March 20, 2020 under a request for emergency approval (OMB #0970-0543). Since ACF received approval for this information collection, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) released updated guidance on COVID-19 symptoms and response, necessitating minor updates to the risk questionnaire. The proposed changes to the previously approved risk questionnaire include a list of updated COVID-19 symptoms; additional questions about whether the individual has been tested for COVID-19; and instructions on how to conduct a temperature check. ORR added questions about testing based on the states increasing ability to conduct more COVID-19 tests than they were able to at the time the original guidance was issued in March. Similarly, the revised risk questionnaire omitted a question about an individual’s travel history because at the time the revised guidance was issued in July, COVID had become a global problem and was no longer only prevalent in the four international locations (China, Iran, South Korea, most of Europe) previously identified on the questionnaire.
