Our Family Practice will remain open during the current COVID-19 pandemic. Office hours will not change, and all providers will be available. Patients with fever or cough will be asked to wear a surgical mask and sit at the far end of the waiting room (we will provide a mask). We also offer telehealth appointments (computer or smartphone video appointments) for patients wishing to avoid an office visit. There is currently no FDA approved medication to treat non-hospitalized patients with COVID-19, however most people who get COVID-19 will recover fully within 2 to 3 weeks. Current measures in place to keep the virus from spreading (working at home, avoiding public gatherings, avoiding travel) are designed to protect the most vulnerable among us - the sick and elderly. Vaccines for COVID-19 are now being tested and will hopefully be available within the next 12 to 18 months. For more information on COVID-19 see the CDC website.
