Medical Minute: What you should know about the slight uptick in COVID cases in our community

Our community is seeing a slight increase in the number of COVID cases, and our Beacon hospitals are seeing a slight uptick in the number of patients with COVID, said Dr. Dale Patterson, President, Beacon Medical Group.

“I want to reassure everyone that this is nowhere near the level that we saw with our previous surges and we are very capable of taking care of the patients in our community right now,” Patterson said.

But what does this mean as the temperatures drop, we start to spend more time indoors and our risk of spreading germs increases? Watch our latest Medical Minute to find out much more, including how you and your family can stay healthy.
