• It’s Think Pink Day, which is an important reminder to get your routine medical care, even during COVID-19. You can and should make appointments for screenings, preventive care and chronic disease management. Medical offices should be ensuring physical distancing in waiting areas, and staff and patients should be masked. If you’ve put off seeing your provider, don’t wait. Early detection saves lives.
• More than 80 percent of COVID-19 cases since Sept. 1 have been people with symptoms. Please be sure to stay home when you are sick, even with mild symptoms.
