COVID-19: Getting Back in the Routine

06-29-2020

The COVID-19 pandemic has been an especially stressful time for everyone, but one thing you shouldn’t have to worry about is access to safe, quality healthcare. Whether you’re getting care in person or through virtual telehealth services, Frederick Health is here for you.

On May 6, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan announced that elective medical procedures—including dentistry—could resume after being on hold for several weeks. If you put off an appointment, exam, or procedure due to COVID-19, call your doctor to reschedule as soon as possible. Recent studies show that many patients have been delaying necessary medical treatment during the pandemic, and we’d like to assure the community that Frederick Health is safe—there is no need to compromise your care.

As always, getting access to exceptional care is just a click or call away. In addition to in-person medical visits, Frederick Health offers telehealth and virtual visit services. Choose telehealth for your ongoing healthcare needs and specialty care. For quick, easy online urgent care, schedule a virtual visit. From the comfort of your home, you can connect with a Frederick Health provider and be treated for common conditions in just an hour.

Have a cut that needs stitches or a severe allergic reaction? Our Urgent Care clinic offers fast, affordable treatment for common conditions, and one of our locations is right across the street from Frederick Health Hospital. Skip the ER and get treated fast—we’re ready to provide you with prompt, professional care.

As the community slowly eases back into normalcy, Frederick Health is here to take care of our patients as we always have, with some new precautions in mind.

Keeping you safe

Here are a few of the ways we’re putting the safety of our patients, community, and staff first:

  • Increased cleaning frequency
  • Requiring masks for patients, visitors, and staff
  • Physical distancing reminders
  • Advanced cleaning technology
  • Screening patients, visitors, and staff for COVID-19 symptoms
  • Protective shields at check-in desks and registration areas
  • Dedicated seating and treatment spaces for sick and well patients
  • Increased access to Telehealth services

Stay healthy

As some states ease lockdown restrictions and move toward reopening, it’s important to remember that the COVID-19 pandemic is not over. Many states’ reopening plans are based upon citizens’ cooperation with social distancing and facial covering guidelines. So, what can you do to stay healthy while still easing yourself back into some of your regular routines?
