Siri will ask users if they are experiencing common symptoms of COVID-19 like a dry cough or a fever; those with potentially life-threatening symptoms will be advised to consider calling 911. People with less severe symptoms will be offered recommendations to stay home and avoid contact with others or to seek additional medical help.

Currently, Siri is only able to provide this experience to users in the U.S. There is no word on whether the tool will be expanded outside the U.S. or not. RGA
