This is a reminder that your NewsGuild provides you and your family members with Teladoc.  At no cost to you,  you and your family members have 24/7/365 access to a U.S. Board Certified Doctor anywhere in the United States. Through the convenience of phone or video consults, doctors can diagnose and prescribe medication, if necessary to the pharmacy of your choice.

Teladoc doctors can treat many medical conditions, including cold and flu symptoms, allergies, bronchitis, skin problems, respiratory infections, urinary tract infections, sinus problems and more.  

Doctors are also available to answer questions about COVID-19 (a respiratory illness caused by a corornavirus), evaluate your risk, and provide support by a phone or video call to help relieve symptoms for affected patients, addressing both physical and mental health needs.   Visit for more information.
