Health Screening and Symptom Check


Health Screening and Symptom Check---

What to do if you are Sick: CDC






The U.S. government passed a $2 trillion dollar stimulus plan on Friday, March 27, 2020. This article was last updated on Saturday, March 28, 2020 at 12 p.m. EST. 

The U.S. government is about to send stimulus payments in the form of checks or direct deposit to many American taxpayers to help people financially survive the COVID-19 outbreak.  

Quick Answers 

  • “How      do I receive a stimulus check?” 
    • If you have filed a tax return for 2018 or 2019, you don’t need to do anything else. If you haven’t filed taxes for either year, the IRS recommends that you file back taxes for 2018.   
  • “Is  the check being mailed or sent direct deposit?”  
    • The check will be sent in the same method you received your IRS refund. If you are not set up for a direct deposit, your check will be mailed using       the address on your most recent tax return. 
  • “What if I don’t have the same bank account now?”  
    • If you don’t have the same bank account as you used on your tax return, the deposit will not go through. If this happens, the IRS will mail your check to the address on your most recent tax return. 
  • “Is  the government using my 2018 or 2019 tax return?” 
    • The government will first look at your 2019 return to determine your eligibility. If you have not filed your 2019 return, they will look at your 2018 tax return. 
  • “Is  the amount I receive based off of my AGI or total income?” 
    • The amount you receive will be calculated based on your adjusted gross income not your total income. 

How will the government decide how much 

I receive? 

According to the bill, the amount you will receive from the COVID-19 stimulus package is determined by your AGI and your tax filing status. The government will look at your 2019 tax return (the one you filed this year) to get this information. If you haven’t prepared this year’s tax return yet, they will use your 2018 AGI and filing status.






Filing status 

AGI amount 

Stimulus check amount 



$75,000   or less

Dependents under 17* 



*Each qualifying dependent under age 17 at the end of the tax year will be worth an additional $500. This amount will be added to the check of their legal guardian. 

If your income exceeds the thresholds in the chart above, the amount will be reduced on a sliding scale and phase out at $99,000 for single filers, $198,000 for joint filers, and $136,500 for head of household filers.
