When COVID-19 first presented itself earlier this year, there was so much about the virus that we didn’t understand. Although there remains a lot to learn, we are learning more every day. For most young and middle age people, this infection is not dangerous. For a small percentage of older patients, the infection can be dangerous and even fatal.
At Integrity, we initially converted nearly all of our encounters to telemedicine in order to ensure that our patients continued to have access to care. As more evidence has become available, we have opened our doors to more in-person visits while continuing to offer remote options.
As we continue to deal with this new infection, we’d like to offer some advice for our patients. As long as the virus remains in our community, there is a risk of contracting it.
