Healthcare during COVID-19

COVID-19 has brought about many changes, one of which can include how we access healthcare. Not surprisingly, there are many questions people are asking themselves including: When should I go to an emergency room? Is diagnostic testing for non-COVID-19-related issues being done? How does a person see a specialist? Can I make an appointment to see my personal physician? If so, how is this done?
