From the Summit Medical Group Who Would be Most Interested for Professional Purposes: Low Interest

We know you are concerned about the coronavirus (COVID-19). As your health care partner, we want you to know that your safety is our top priority. We should also emphasize that while the coronavirus is concerning, the overall risk to the general public remains low.
WHAT YOU SHOULD DO TO PROTECT YOURSELF
Coronavirus spreads through contact with respiratory droplets caused by coughing and sneezing. You should be using the same prevention methods as you would to avoid a common cold or the flu. The best ways to protect yourself include:
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.Try to avoid touching your face.Avoid close contact with people who are sick.Stay home from school or work when you are sick.
Because it is still cold and flu season, our offices and urgent care centers continue to see a significant number of patients with symptoms like fever, cough and body aches. Right now, if you’re feeling ill, it is still much more likely to be a cold or the flu rather than the coronavirus. As with the flu, most people who get coronavirus only experience mild viral symptoms such as fever, cough, muscle pain or weakness, and fatigue, and will experience a complete recovery.
