Dear Valued Trilogy Wellness Patients,
We are writing to assure you that Trilogy Wellness is taking every measure possible to keep our patients safe and provide our patients with continuing access to medicine.
In addition to continuing to follow our normal high standards for Good Manufacturing Practices, Trilogy is taking extra measures to follow the CDC’s updated guidelines to sanitize the facility regularly and Trilogy will continue to comply with all state recommended guidelines as the situation is rapidly evolving. Given MDH and CDC recommendations to facilitate social distancing, the MMCC is suspending the patient signature requirement until further notice.
The Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission (MMCC) has provided the following information for patients regarding the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). COVID-19 is a new respiratory virus first identified in December 2019. Worldwide, COVID-19 has resulted in thousands of infections, causing illness and in some cases death. Cases have spread to countries throughout the world, with more cases reported daily. As of March 11, there are nine confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Maryland.
COVID-19 is thought to be able to spread like the cold or flu through:
- Coughing and sneezing, which creates respiratory droplets
- Close personal contact, such as touching or shaking hands
- Touching an object or surface with the virus on it
Symptoms of COVID-19 include:
- Shortness of breath
- In more severe cases, pneumonia (infection in the lungs)
The vast majority of people
recover from this infection. Most people will have mild or moderate symptoms.
Older people and those with pre-existing medical conditions have a greater risk
for more serious illness. MDH has developed specific recommendations for
facilities that serve older adults. You may read the MDH guidance to facilities
that serve older people here.
In addition, please visit MDH’s website for novel coronavirus and Frequently Asked Questions for more information.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) also has extensive information on COVID-19, including steps to prevent illness, symptoms, recommendations for keeping workplaces safe and recommendations for cleaning and disinfecting facilities.
