In-Person Health Care Appointments After COVID-19 Peak

(Family Features) In the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, many people put off in-person visits to the doctor’s office. They were able to do so because virtual visits allowed them to safely get the care they needed while avoiding the uncertainty and precautions that accompanied in-person visits, such as wearing masks, undergoing temperature checks and filling out screening questionnaires.

Now, as the United States emerges from the pandemic – with more than 170 million Americans having received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention – health care booking behaviors are shifting once again.
