Remarks from Landmark’s Chief Medical Officer, Michael Le, MD.
As COVID-19 and variants continue to affect our communities, remember that as a Landmark-eligible patient, you can stay home and have medical and behavioral health care come to you.
While infection rates, as well as vaccination rates, vary nationwide, it is important to continue to wear masks and social distance in indoor public spaces. Studies suggest that the available COVID-19 vaccines are effective against the current variants in preventing moderate to severe illness. If you are able, we strongly encourage you to get vaccinated.
Landmark providers are continuing to take precautions to help keep you safe. All patients are asked coronavirus screening questions prior to a home visit and all of our providers continue to wear appropriate protective equipment (such as a mask and gown). If only a phone or video visit can be done, our team will do their best to make those accommodations.
Keep your Landmark appointments. Please take every possible step to stay safe and well.
Taking care of your mental health during an infectious disease outbreak.
The outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19) may be stressful. Fear about a disease can cause strong emotions. If you experience changes in your sleep or eating, increased use of alcohol, tobacco, or other drugs, or worsening health conditions, call your Landmark care team.
COVID-19 Vaccine Information
The COVID-19 vaccine is free to anyone who wants one. The vaccine is FDA approved for Emergency Use Authorization. Even if you have already had COVID-19 and recovered, you should get the vaccine. Reinfection is possible, and the vaccine may protect against new variants of the virus.
The COVID-19 delta variant is widespread and is more infectious than prior strains. Studies suggest that the available COVID-19 vaccines are effective against the current variants in preventing moderate to severe illness.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has a dedicated website for reliable information on COVID-19. Additionally, here are some resources we recommend for our patients.
Remember, when the doctor comes to your home, you can avoid viruses found in:
• public transportation,
• doctor’s office waiting rooms, and
• busy care facilities.
Landmark takes precautions to help keep our providers healthy and will work to keep you safe.
Landmark Health and its affiliated medical groups work with health plans to bring medical, behavioral, palliative and social care to patients living with multiple chronic conditions.
We don’t discriminate. Landmark Health and its affiliated medical groups (Landmark) comply with Federal civil rights laws. Landmark does not exclude people or treat them differently because of race, color, national origin, age, disability or sex.
