Advocate Aurora Health holds town hall to answer COVID-19 questions
(CBS 58) – Advocate Aurora Health held a virtual town hall with doctors on Friday, June 5 to answer questions and concerns about COVID-19.
Doctors said virtual visits are still available but those that have in-person appointments should expect to wear masks, have their temperatures checked and maintain social distancing.
Many routine services like cancer screenings are now back up and running.
As many begin to get back to their normal lives, doctors urge people to still limit the size of gatherings they attend and maintain social distancing.
As summer gets underway, one doctor answered a question about the impact of warm weather on COVID-19.
"The concern is that even with higher temperatures and humidity, the virus may be less active, but it's still out there," Advocate Aurora Health Dr. Robert Citronberg said. "The problem with hot and humid weather is that people are congregating more too, so even if there is a beneficial impact from weather conditions, that can easily be negated by the fact that people are congregating so much more."
Advocate Aurora Health plans on holding more of these town halls.
