NEW SEASON: Prescription for Hope: COVID-19, a podcast about the crisis

Welcome to Season 2 of MetroHealth's "Prescription for Hope." This season, we are focusing on COVID-19.

Episode 4: Answering the COVID-19 Hotline

In less than two weeks, nurses answering MetroHealth’s COVID-19 hotline have talked to over 4,200 callers. More than 2,100 of them have then been connected to doctors for an over-the-phone visit. MetroHealth primary care physician Dr. David Margolius helped launch the hotline and has worked the phones from the beginning. He describes how it works and what it’s meant to not only worried patients but to the scores of doctors and nurses on the other side of the line.

See the article for more details.

If you have questions or concerns about COVID-19, please call the dedicated MetroHealth support line at 440-59-COVID (440.592.6843).

Combating COVID-19

Anxiety, Fear and Coronavirus

AnxietyThe World Health Organization declared the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic. It is critical that we maintain perspective and support one another.


It is hard to make sense of a threat that we cannot see, do not fully understand and are unable to stop. Fear, anger, frustration and sadness are normal, but we cannot act impulsively. Fear and anxiety are intended only to make us cautious and thoughtful.


Stop, gather information, evaluate, and then act.


Here are some tips to manage your emotions:


  1. Be informed, but not over-informed. Use official sources (e.g., CDC, Ohio Dept. of Health) and check periodically – not every ten minutes.
  2. Stay fact-based. Avoid imagining “worst possible scenarios” and consider “most likely scenarios.”
  3. Ask yourself, “Have I interacted with an active case?” If “no,” refocus your thoughts and be positive.
  4. Know the steps to seek care and be prepared for possible quarantine. 
  5. Manage risk- scrub your hands 20 seconds; cover coughs ; avoid crowds; maintain safe distance; and stay home if you are sick.  
  6. Limit physical contact, but MAINTAIN CONTACT with your family and friends. They need you! Call, text, email, etc.
  7. Demonstrate patience, compassion, gratitude and love. Now more than ever.
