What to do if you are sick

You and your family’s health, safety and well-being are of utmost importance to us at UHS. If you are not feeling well, we strongly encourage you to call your provider's office or utilize the UHS virtual walk-in before you come in especially if you are experiencing fever, shortness of breath, cough, or any combination of those. DO NOT delay seeking in-person care if you are struggling to breathe. Infections like the flu and the novel coronavirus are especially concerning, but can be avoided by taking precautions.

If you are coming in for an appointment:

  • We ask that you come alone.
  • If you do require assistance, please limit this to one additional person only. Do not bring a guest who is not feeling well.
  • People over the age of 65 should avoid coming if at all possible.
  • If you are bringing a child in for a pediatric appointment, please do not bring the youngster's siblings.

We understand that this is not an easy or welcome transition. We want to ensure the highest possible level of safety and care for everyone's well-being and to be compliant with federal, state and county directives during the COVID-19 situation.

UHS Virtual Walk-In

Our local UHS providers can diagnose patients with colds, viral respiratory infections, influenza, or potential COVID-19.
