You do not have to see a doctor for a minor bump on the head without any symptoms. Secondly, if you did have to see a doctor do not fear catching COVID as doctor's offices take excellent precautions.

Discuss with your physician, the application of a cool compress to the area, rest and hydration. If you notice any other changes, please be evaluated. The risk of COVID 19 is reduced by masks, hand washing and distancing.
