I recently had to find a lab in my area for blood test. The hospital Center in nearby city recommended this, due to increased Covid19 threat and to spare all concerned. Lab in our small rural town was closed but I managed to find lab in nearby small town. They were able to give me an appointment time, Hematologist faxed them a requisition and I went to have the test. I found the lab attendants were very appropriately masked, gowned and wearing face shields etc. I was given a mask (I inquired in advance if I should wear one and they preferred to give me one there).The test was done, Hematologist has results and Dr phoned me with directions for prescription of Hydroxyurea continuing. I feel this is a reasonable alternative during these uncertain times. Stay home and stay well. Take care all.
