A major concern that has emerged from the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic is patient avoidance of necessary medical care.1 Data regarding how in-person visits to medical facilities influence the risk of contracting severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection are limited.
