Summary/Abstract

With the increase in February 2020 of COVID-19 cases and the need for social distancing practices, telehealth became a CDC-recommended format for health care providers and facilities to use for clinical services. Research published in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report showed the number of telehealth visits increased by 50% in the first quarter of 2020 compared with the same period in 2019.
