COVID-19 Information & Resources Guide

COVID-19, which is also known as coronavirus, is on everyone’s minds during these times. Officially discovered in 2019 and named in 2020 by the World Health Organization (WHO), COVID-19 causes symptoms including a dry cough, fever, and difficulty breathing in more severe cases. Given its current impact, many people are understandably seeking out more information and resources regarding COVID-19, including its impact on individuals living with conditions like spinal cord injury, spina bifida, and more. 180 Medical is dedicated to providing you with the information you need to stay healthy and safe, so we’ve prepared a guide filled with helpful resources.

What does the COVID-19 pandemic mean for 180 Medical customers?

180 Medical has taken this situation seriously regarding our customers’ and employees’ safety and health. The majority of our workforce has transitioned to working remotely from home while sheltering in place. However, this change has not affected our normal hours of operation. We remain available for our customers during normal business hours while exercising safe social distancing practices.

Government Resources Regarding COVID-19

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) offers the most objective information concerning COVID-19, including resources for symptom assessment and advice for seeking testing if you believe you or someone you know has been exposed to the coronavirus. The federal government has issued a national plan, but the response in your area may differ depending on the severity of the COVID-19 infections in your region.

For regular updates on COVID-19 and the federal government’s response, you can subscribe to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) email newsletter.
