(WSYR-TV) — Local doctor’s offices are pretty quiet to start off the week.
Some of the pediatricians suggest that maybe our mask-wearing is doing more than just protecting us from COVID-19.
In Camillus, one pediatrician who worked this past weekend was surprised to see the office so empty.
Despite that, there has been a stomach bug going around. There have also been colds, pink eye and ear infections.
In Liverpool, Dr. Dracker is seeing much less strep throat than he normally would this time of year. There’s some upper respiratory illnesses, fevers and allergies going around.
In Pulaski, the one thing on Dr. Carguello’s list is upper respiratory symptoms from rhinovirus.
And, at the Urgent Care in Fulton, they are ruling out COVID-19 cases, treating upper respiratory infections and checking out tick bites.
If you or your child is sick, your doctor can tell you about the best treatments.
