Keeping our hospitals clean, preventing the spread of infection and putting patient safety first are nothing new to UMass Memorial. But under the new normal, you may be fearful about going to the doctor or hospital. Trust that we will keep you safe.
At noon on Friday, April 10, we’re asking our followers to create a wave of thanks for fighting COVID-19 by sharing Chris Mann’s #ThankUfrontline video, which features medical caregivers, farmers, civil service employees, grocery clerks, teachers, our military and more. Include #UMassMemorialStrength and tag your coworkers or loved ones who leave the security of their homes to keep essential services and our communities up and running.
Many individuals experiencing mild COVID-19 symptoms are advised to stay at home and practice self-care measures until symptoms subside.

And what symptoms indicate that a higher level of medical attention is needed? As always, your primary caregiver is your number one resource for medical information and advice, but UMass Memorial Health Care offers these tips to help you feel better soon.
