Be aware, that no urgent care will back date a note. All they will certify is what is happening on the day they see you, and you are or are not cleared to return to work. So that whole work note things puts medical people right smack in the middle of the business/employee dispute. I hate it. Because we do not back date, the employer may or may not accept it as well. A simple walk in urgent care visit cost can be all over the place. Call & ask first.Here's what I would do.....call and speak to your supervisor or human resources. Explain that you totally understand the 90-day thing, but........
(1), you don't have health insurance and it's at least $75 (or whatever in your area) for an urgent care center visit
(2), it's not like the doctor can "test" for a stomach virus. All they could state on the form was that when you were examined, you had an elevated temperature, if you had one. No one in the doc's office wants exposed to it, so it doesn't make sense to expose the medical staff and other patients to the stomach bug, especially when there's nothing the doc can do other than advise rest and increasing clear liquids.
See if they will accept your verbal explanation- if not, to be honest, I wouldn't want to work somewhere that the "letter of the law" was more important than common sense. From what you've written already, I don't think you'll be heartbroken if you left (on your own accord or at their recommendation!
