President's Message


The Bottom Line

Howard Headlee, President, Utah Bankers Association

"Do not mistake the public health strategy of 'Go home, isolate, and go to the hospital if you have difficulty breathing' for a personalized medical treatment plan. Your treatment plan has to come from your doctor.  If you are over 50 years old or have one of more comorbidities, I strongly encourage you to reach out and talk to your doctor about the best research and what treatment she will be recommending should you test positive.

Please don’t wait until you test positive to make those decisions. And if your Dr. suggests you should go home, isolate and wait to see if things get worse, I would definitely get a second opinion."
