Coronavirus Update from Maryland Department of Health

I received a clinician letter from the Maryland Department of Health today regarding the Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV). To summarize:

1) There are no lab confirmed cases in Maryland thus far.
2) Testing is recommended for those with fever, cough or shortness of breath, and travel to China within 14 days prior.
3) If you meet the above criteria, call ahead to your healthcare provider before being seen so precautions can be taken.
