Don’t Delay Necessary Non-COVID-19 Care

People needing emergency or non-urgent medical care not related to COVID-19 are reminded to continue seeking treatment.  Emergency departments and family practices are open and receiving patients.  Delaying visits for necessary care may affect your health.

Similar to other businesses, family doctors are changing how patients are being received in their clinics.  Rather than postponing appointments or delaying seeing a doctor, contact the physician’s office to ask about options for the visit, including phone and video consultations.
