Coronavirus Disease 2019 Also called COVID-19

What You Can Do

Talk with your care team if you have concerns about waiting to have a test or procedure done. Often a phone call or telehealth visit to discuss your concerns can provide some peace of mind. It can also reassure you that you will get the care you need when you need it. 

Just like you would do before the COVID-19 pandemic:

  • Take your medications as directed—don’t make any changes without talking to your care team first
  • Watch for any new symptoms or signs that your heart condition may be getting worse and call your health professional to let them know
  • Keep up with healthy habits including exercising regularly, and eating vegetables, fruits, and unprocessed foods
  • Know how to contact your health professional or call 911 in an emergency
