Under Governor Cuomo’s NY State on PAUSE, 100% of the workforce must stay home, excluding essential services, due to the coronavirus pandemic. The plan outlines that “sick individuals should not leave their home unless to receive medical care and only after a telehealth visit to determine if leaving the home is in the best interest of their health.” Get the medical treatment you need, without leaving the house by scheduling a Virtual Visit at Pulse-MD Urgent Care.
