TEMECULA – A Plus Urgent Care has launched its new telehealth service, enabling virtual visits for fast access to care, from the comfort of home. Telehealth allows patients to receive high-quality care from a clinician, while also keeping them safe during this uncertain time. Telehealth utilizes a user-friendly, HIPAA-compliant platform that fosters connectivity.

To make a telehealth appointment, call 951-696-7587. Where possible, the urgent care clinic encouraged the use of telehealth virtual visits to access health care.

The urgent care reminded the community that if individuals develop a fever, cough, have difficulty breathing or have had close contact with someone who has had a positive COVID-19 test result, seek medical attention by calling their provider’s office or urgent care clinic. For more information regarding the coronavirus, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention at https://www.cdc.gov.

A Plus Urgent Care is fully operational and serving the needs of the community by taking proactive steps to keep patients and team members safe, including screening all individuals upon entering the facility.

They are actively monitoring and responding to all recommendations made by the CDC and local regulatory and health authorities.

The clinic has increased the frequency of the required cleaning and sanitization of their facility, including intake rooms, surfaces and common areas. It has implemented additional training for all employees on handwashing and hand sanitization and strict employee and client compliance with washing/sanitizing hands thoroughly and often.

The CDC recommended individuals and families follow everyday preventive measures.

Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue, then dispose of the tissue.

Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds; especially after using the bathroom, before eating and after blowing their nose, coughing or sneezing.

If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with 60-95% alcohol.

Routinely clean frequently touched surfaces and objects.

Stay home when sick with respiratory disease symptoms.

Practice “social distancing” to avoid spread of the virus. Do not meet in groups larger than 10 persons and maintain personal space when engaging in in-person interactions.
