Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

This time of year in our community it is very difficult to tell the difference between allergy reactions (cough, runny nose) and viruses like flu or coronavirus. If you experience any symptoms of cough, runny nose, fever, feeling run down, weakness or difficulty breathing, call your family physician and follow his or her recommendations. In this blog post is a list of often used, common sense practices to prevent spread of diseases like the common cold, the flu, and the coronavirus. Keep you and your loved ones healthy!
