CCHC Urgent Care is taking precautions to keep everyone safe and protected from possible exposure to COVID-19 during their visit. The wellbeing of our patients, visitors, and staff remains our top priority. We appreciate your patience as we navigate this challenging time and make a few changes to serve you better:
- CCHC Urgent Care is not currently performing asymptomatic exposure testing for COVID-19. We apologize for the inconvenience. We have made this decision for two main reasons. Currently, there are limited to no available therapies for the prevention of COVID-19 infection other than vaccination. Secondly, correct testing requires a narrow timeframe for accurate results and our urgent care is not equipped to ensure this happens every time. We assess our approach to COVID-19 testing and therapies on a daily basis, and will relax this restriction when it is clinically appropriate.
- All patients will be required to wear a mask.
- To limit contact, you may be asked to wait for your appointment in your car after you check in. We will call you in when your provider is ready to see you.
- A portion or all of your visit may be done virtually from your car. Virtual visits not only limit contact for your and our staff, but also allow us to conserve medical supplies.
- One visitor will be allowed per patient. Further visitors are up to provider discretion.
