Common Doctor's Notes

You should get a doctor’s note when you have a condition or appointment that will interfere with your ability to attend work, school or camp normally, such as illness or injury.

If you are sick and contagious, it is your responsibility to protect the health of your coworkers, friends and clients by staying home. If you are experiencing covid-19 or flu-like symptoms, we recommend you to speak with one of our online doctors and get an official doctor’s note to be excused from work, school or camp. This is because these viruses can be highly contagious, and being excused will give you the much-needed time to recover while keeping others safe.

Some common contagious illnesses include: common cold, Stomach viruses, flu, COVID-19, and RSV.

Most workplaces, schools or camps consider an injury that affects your ability to perform your job reasonably or to participate in class or activities to be an appropriate reason for sick leave. Supervisors, teachers and counselors usually prefer their employees, students or campers to be working efficiently, or actively involved rather than dragging out the length of an injury and working below capacity.

Some common injuries include physical injuries (broken arm, leg, etc.) or psychological injuries as a consequence of a traumatic event, which may compromise daily activities as well.

Most workplaces, schools or camps allow you to use sick days to attend a doctor’s appointment. Some common medical appointments include a routine check up, follow-up of a chronic condition, follow-up of a pre-existing medical condition, or any other medical reason to consult a healthcare professional, in turn allowing you to maintain good health and reduce your likelihood of needing sick leave in the future.

If you suffer from a medical condition that increases your risk of a severe illness from COVID-19 or the Flu and need to request accommodation from your workplace in order to continue working remotely, you can request a doctor’s note online to provide to your employer. Review your company’s terms of employment or talk to your HR department to learn more.

If you need to miss work, school or camp for an extended period of time, such as more than one week, you typically need to provide an official doctor’s note.

If you suffer from a medical condition that requires hospitalization or treatment by a medical professional, you can request a doctor’s note online to cover your absences.

If you are pregnant or just gave birth to a newborn baby, you can request a doctor’s note online to cover your absences.

Our online doctors can’t backdate or provide sick notes for an illness that occurred in the distant past — i.e. more than a week prior.

In addition, Eden Telemed is not approved to treat medical emergencies. If you believe you are experiencing an emergency, call 911 immediately or proceed to the nearest hospital.
