COVID-19 is no excuse to delay your mammogram

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has meant that many women put off their regular mammogram, the best diagnostic tool in the fight against breast cancer.
As most health care facilities closed for all but emergency care at the height of the pandemic, many people faced canceled appointments, and some have been reluctant to reschedule since centers reopened.
The pandemic isn’t over, but Hartford HealthCare teams have adopted continued and enhanced safety practices to keep facilities clean and safe. Mammography testing locations, as well as other services, have been reopened cautiously, carefully and safely, so breast health experts say it’s time to reschedule your exam.
