Is it safe for me to visit MedRite Now?

What are the differences between the Coronavirus/COVID-19 and the flu?
The Coronavirus and flu have very similar symptoms. It is important to note most patients experiencing flu-like symptoms do not have Coronavirus and should seek care at MedRite.

How does the Coronavirus/COVID-19 spread?
The virus is believed to mainly spread from person-to-person. We advise keeping at least six feet of distance from anyone who may be sick or showing early signs as this virus can be spread through respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs and sneezes.

Touching infected surfaces and objects then touching your eyes, mouth, or nose may be another way that you could become infected, however, this is not thought to be the main way this virus spreads.

What can I do to protect myself from Coronavirus/COVID-19?
There are many precautions you can take to protect yourself against the Coronavirus and the first would be to get a flu shot. Although a flu vaccine cannot protect you from COVID-19 directly, you are more likely to develop severe pneumonia if you were to contract both viruses simultaneously.

Additionally, it is also important to frequently wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer when soap and water are not available. Gels, rubs, and hand wipes all work well as long as they contain at least 60% alcohol.

Lastly, always be sure to cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or with the inside of your elbow, never your hands. Also try to stay at least six feet away from people who are sick and do not share water bottles, drinks, sports equipment such as mouthpieces, etc.
