We at Cherry Bend Family Care want to acknowledge the current COVID-19 outbreak that is affecting our world. These are very uncertain times in the medical community. While this is a very fluid situation we hope the following information is helpful to you while we all try to navigate this unknown territory...
The most important message is DON'T PANIC. The shutdowns and restrictions are meant to be PROACTIVE rather then reactive to prevent the spread. It is very important to remember that 80-90% of cases are mild. If you develop symptoms you should STAY HOME. The majority of severe cases present with a Fever and Cough. You need to rest and push fluids. If you develop any signs of difficulty breathing with these symptoms you should present to the ER for immediate evaluation. If you are able to isolate at home and rest with mild symptoms that is your best course of action. We don't want to overwhelm the medical system with minor cases. If you are high risk (60+/chronic health issues) with symptoms or exposure please follow the advice below.
As of March 15th there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Traverse City or Northern Michigan. That being said we will likely encounter a case in the near future. If you are concerned about symptoms or exposure there are options to consider.
1) Spectrum Health Care is offering FREE tele-med screening for the disease for all residents in the state of Michigan. Please call (616) 391-2380
2) You can also send a web message or leave a voice message to this office but be aware that we are seeing patients throughout the day and we cannot always answer these immediatley. Please provide us with your questions/concerns/symptoms and we will respond as quickly as possible.
3) Munson's Urgent Care center will be offering a drive thru screening center with a DOCTOR's order. You must still meet criteria to get screened as testing supplies are still limited in the state of Michigan.
We will continue to update you as we are able. At this time Cherry Bend Family Care remains open to meet your medical needs. We will be working on offering more tele-medicine visits with our midlevels in the near future as the need arises. Remember to wash your hands, drink plenty of water and continue to excercise. These are the best defenses against illness. Stay Healthy!
