Dear El Camino Health Patient, 

The health and well-being of our patients, their families, and our staff is our number one priority. 

With flu and allergy season upon us, you or your loved ones may be experiencing cold or flu-like symptoms, such as runny nose, coughing, or sneezing. With the media coverage about COVID-19, or the novel coronavirus, both around the world and in our community, you might feel concerned about COVID-19. 

If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms, and would like to consult with a clinician, El Camino Health and Amwell are partnering to bring you a secure, convenient way to see a doctor in your home, via your home computer or mobile device, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 

Amwell online urgent care is a secure and convenient option to have a same-day video or phone visit with a doctor from the comfort of your home. Visits on Amwell may be covered by your health insurance. To access Amwell online urgent care, download the Amwell app on  <https://elcaminohospital.hrm.healthgrades.com/acton/ct/17870/s-04a8-2003/Bct/l-0499/l-0499:2670/ct2_0/1?sid=TV2%3AN3YdPLNAU> Google Play or the  <https://elcaminohospital.hrm.healthgrades.com/acton/ct/17870/s-04a8-2003/Bct/l-0499/l-0499:2670/ct3_0/1?sid=TV2%3AN3YdPLNAU> Apple App store.
