With the recent outbreak and significant news coverage of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), your patients are likely turning to you with questions and concerns regarding their own health. The AAFP has gathered the latest information you need to ensure that your practice is prepared for COVID-19 and that your patients get evidence-based information from their trusted doctor.
The AAFP’s coronavirus page is your go-to resource that will be updated regularly with new information from the CDC and other credible sources that’s relevant for family physicians. This includes what’s currently known about:
- Infection control
- Pandemic preparation
Bookmark this resource and check back frequently to stay informed about this rapidly evolving public health situation.
In addition to patient concerns around coronavirus, I know many of us are still experiencing an active flu season. Thus, it is important we continue to remind our patients who haven’t gotten a flu shot that is it not too late to be vaccinated.
We will continue to monitor the coronavirus situation and will send you additional emails as appropriate.
