Drs. Brian Lin and Mike Weinstock discuss alterations to our usual practice patterns of laceration repair in the setting of the COVID pandemic, which include increasing patient throughput through faster closure techniques, reducing total points of contact with the healthcare system by using techniques to obviate the need for a return visit, and habit changes during closure to minimize exposure risk during face-to-face contact.
