Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information at Ramos Center in Bradenton, Sarasota, Venice, Englewood and Port Charlotte, FL
Ramos Center is here to provide COVID-19 information for our patients and community. Please join us in helping stop the spread of disease!
What is the Ramos Center doing in response to COVID-19?
The Ramos Center is taking all of the necessary precautions in light of COVID-19, as recommended by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We are also closely monitoring every development of COVID-19 in the communities we operate in and in the United States at large. We want to make sure we are keeping our clinics as safe as possible to keep everyone who enters our clinics and everyone they encounter safe as well. As such, we are making telemedicine appointments available to reduce the amount of traffic in our buildings and practice social distancing. We are also asking anyone who is experiencing symptoms similar to those associated with COVID-19 to stay home. Some of these symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, or a loss of smell. We can reschedule your appointment to a later date, or if it works for you, we can conduct it via telemedicine.
We have also been involved with our communities to help other facilities with the fight against COVID-19! We have delivered hot lunches and have secured hundreds of N95 masks, which we are donating to medical providers in Bradenton, Sarasota, and Venice. Read more about our relief efforts here!
What should I do in response to COVID-19?
Just as we are being vigilant in our response to COVID-19 at the Ramos Center for Interventional and Functional Pain Medicine, we also kindly ask that you do the same! The more careful we are throughout these crazy times, the faster we will get through it. As such, please continue to social distance, practice proper hygiene, and follow the guidelines set in place by the CDC. Good hygiene habits in response to COVID-19 include frequent use of hand sanitizer or handwashing for at least 20 seconds, avoiding touching your face, and frequent disinfecting of surfaces. It is also advisable that you use face coverings when out in public. Continue to limit the number of people you keep company with during this time and avoid large social gatherings. If you are feeling sick at all, please stay home!
Who is most at risk of COVID-19?
People who are most at risk of both contracting COVID-19 and experiencing an adverse reaction to it are the elderly and those with weakened or compromised immune systems. Individuals with compromised immune systems include those who have asthma, cancer, diabetes, or autoimmune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis. While such people are most vulnerable to the devastating effects of COVID-19, unfortunately, it has had an adverse impact on otherwise perfectly healthy and young individuals. As such, no one can be too careful when it comes to COVID-19. We all must be cautious during this time so that we don’t endanger those who are most vulnerable to this virus.
