COVID-19 SYMPTOMS CAN INCLUDE:
If you’re experiencing symptoms and have traveled to areas of concern (or have been in contact with someone who has), please call the nurse triage number before you come into the office. Arrange for special transportation to and from your medical appointment. Do not use public transportation. Symptoms of Covid-19 are like the cold or flu and may take up to 5-14 days to appear after exposure to the virus. Be vigilant as sever cases may lead to pneumonia, kidney failure, or death.
We will update this page as conditions change.
