A patient who had been to Liberia presented himself today at the Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates Braintree practice complaining of headache and muscle aches. Out of an abundance of caution we immediately notified authorities and the patient was securely removed from the building and put into an ambulance now headed to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. The building was closed briefly but has now re-opened. We are working closely with the State Department of Public Health.
Update: As of 5:30pm today, our Braintree practice has been cleared by the State Department of Public Health to reopen for usual business and will be open for holiday hours tomorrow.
