Reopening the State: How to Stay Healthy!

Quick Care Med Urgent Care

Reopening the State: How to Stay Healthy!We’re starting to see a lot more interaction and activity, such as crowded beaches and businesses reopening. This is great for our economy, but we need to remember that the coronavirus is still lingering out there, and the experts expect it to have a second wave. No matter what we’re being told or what we personally believe, it’s essential to practice the same precautions that you would during a normal flu season, but with greater intensity than in the past. After all, history does tend to repeat itself, and COVID-19 has not been eradicated.

We all know to practice good hygiene, avoid large crowds, wear a face covering, and avoid touching our faces. If you decide to go to the beach, you can certainly wear a mask, or just stay at least 6 to 10 feet away from others. If you get your hair cut, wear a mask. If you go out to eat, wear a mask into the restaurant and once seated at a safe distance from others, take it off and enjoy your meal. If you are sick, stay home! If you have symptoms of COVID, get tested. This is our new normal.

Telehealth—Virtual Office Visits
Telehealth is still available at Quick Care Urgent Care and recommended if necessary.
Quick Care Med is seeing urgent care patients as usual, but ask that if you have a fever, cough or shortness of breath, that you schedule a telemedicine appointment. All patients are asked to wear a face covering when entering the building and the seating is arranged, so that all patients are kept at a safe distance from each other. Quick Care Med has also implemented even stricter disinfection protocols to keep their entire office and waiting area sanitized. Please be respectful of other people’s personal space and keep your children close to you while in the waiting area and treatment rooms.

We’re all in this together and we need to be smart to stay safe!
