Our community has been impacted by the novel Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). I want you to know that health is very important to me. 🙂
Instead of waiting for a forced lock-down, take responsibility for yourself and your family. Be proactive to minimize your exposure.
- If you’ve recently been in any airport, cruise ship, or other hot spot, please wait 14 days before exposing others to an infection.
- If you or someone close to you has recently traveled to or from Iran, South Korea, China, or Italy, I urge you postpone leaving your home until a self quarantine period has passed. Remember that this virus is widespread in the community and you can get infected without direct exposure to travel.
- Stay home if you have a temperature, take care of yourself, and seek medical help when appropriate.
Consider scheduling a secure video appointment with me. Research shows that they can be just as effective as in-person appointments, and we will continue your care without interruption as we have over the past year.
Please refer to the CDC’s dedicated 2019-ncov website for additional information on Covid-19 changes, and maintain awareness by checking the official communications from the World Health Organization.
Additionally, your health may be affected by worry, fear, difficulty focusing, ruminating thoughts, and social isolation from the inability to meet with your social group.
We are being encouraged to limit our social interactions. Set-up weekly virtual interactions with friends and family. FaceTime, Skype, Zoom, Google Hangouts Meet, and other platforms are great options.
Finally I would encourage you to have a simple daily schedule you can follow, including time on meditative or spiritual practices, exercise, healthy eating, contact by phone or video chat with others, and something to stimulate your mind such as puzzles, games, new hobbies, or small projects.
If you have any questions, need to schedule an appointment, or would like a phone call check in, please let me know.

I also encourage you to follow Dr. John Campbell on Youtube who is giving a lay person explanation on Covid-19 and the global response. I have found his commentary to be informative without the click-bait issues found in some media.
