Covid-19 Latest Message from Our Experts

Latest Update from Our Experts Regarding (Covid-19), March 30, 2020

Dear Community,

We encourage you to adhere to Governor Cooper’s “stay at home” order.  We can easily provide most of your routine checkups and well visits through WH Anywhere.  In the event it is essential for you to visit one of our offices, our policies and procedures have been developed with the advice of our Infection Control experts and are designed to help keep you safe.

Covid-19 is clearly a tremendous health concern at present that has spread across the globe. As expected the number of cases in the United States has increased dramatically and there is extensive spread in specific areas such as New York City but at this time there is also community spread in North Carolina as well. Information about the virus is changing on a near daily basis and will likely continue to do so for the foreseeable future. We at Wilmington Health will continue to try and update our patients and provide information about the state of local spread. We also encourage you to obtain information from reliable sources such as CDC.

However, there are several points that need to be made:

How dangerous is the virus?

How is the virus spread?

How can I prevent the spread of this virus?

What about travel?

Future Outlook

Thank you for reading, and please follow our website and/or Facebook for ongoing updates! Wilmington Health will continue to monitor this closely!

Sincerely,

Dr. Sincock
