COVID-19: fear of going to the ER

Going to the hospital can seem extra scary at this time. I have had several conversations with people not wanting to go to the ER for fear of getting Covid-19. Statistics are showing a rise in people dying at home from heart attacks, strokes and other treatable illness’ as they do not want to go to the ER.

Please know that hospitals are safe. Hospitals deal with germs every day. Even with supplies being stretched, hospitals are the masters of infection control, keeping areas and patients separated, keeping staff healthy.
