Valley Health reminds those in our community who have flu-like symptoms
and need medical attention to seek out their family practitioner or a
Valley Health Urgent Care or Quick Care rather than come to their local
hospital’s Emergency Department. Unless an individual is very young
or very old, has significant risk factors, or is experiencing severe symptoms
such as shortness of breath or high fever, he or she should not need to
call 911 or visit the Emergency Department.
