In the coronavirus era, here’s when it’s essential to seek medical advice.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, the question of when to get medical care can be a little confusing. Most healthcare offices are closed, many doctors are working remotely, and we’re encouraged to seek medical attention only in situations that can’t wait until the curve flattens. However, this doesn’t mean you should refrain from calling your doctor altogether. There are many situations—both coronavirus-related and not—in which getting advice from a medical professional is absolutely essential.
