Richard Coia, M.D. '10, is a board-certified emergency medicine physician and associate medical director at Rochester Regional Health in Rochester, NY, and is evaluating and treating patients with known and suspected coronavirus infection. He is taking necessary precautions by using as much appropriate PPE as possible, watching what he touches, frequently washing his hands, not touching his face, and assuming everyone is infected. His words to the public: "Stay home! This is not a joke. It is not exaggerated. You can save lives by social distancing!"
