IN LIGHT OF THE COVID-19 OUTBREAK, IF YOU HAVE FLU-LIKE SYMPTOMS, OR HAVE HAD DIRECT EXPOSURE TO SOMEONE WHO HAS FLU-LIKE SYMPTOMS:

Prior to going to any scheduled medical appointment (doctor visit, physical therapy, diagnostic testing, etc.) related to your workers’ compensation claim, please contact the medical provider to explain your circumstances so that they can determine whether your appointment should go forward or be rescheduled.

When in doubt call the medical provider. It would be advisable to document the date and time of your call.
