BANGOR – The coronavirus continues to change the way Mainers live.
On Wednesday, the head of Penobscot Community Health Care announced most face-to-face appointments would be discontinued, temporarily.
According to PCHC President Lori Dwyer, walk-in care facilities will still see patients with flu-like symptoms and any other acute care issues.
“We are turning our non-essential, sort of of non-emergency, into telemedicine and telephone appointments,” Dwyer said. “We’re going to use our technology and insure that there’s proper social distancing.”
Dwyer also said many of its other medical services will be closed except in the case of emergencies.
