Is it safe to visit urgent cares during the COVID-19 crisis?
We know you still need care for your child’s minor illnesses and injuries, and we understand it may feel unsettling to come into a medical facility during a pandemic. Mary Bridge Children’s Urgent Cares have strict and current up-to-date guidelines in place for your safety and well-being.
- Appointments required
We are asking patients to book a same day or next day appointment online. Enjoy the virtual waiting room from the comfort of your home and then in your vehicle when you arrive. We can only offer limited walk-in availability with unpredictable wait times; scheduling an appointment allows for optimal social distancing within our sites.
- Masks required
For your safety, everyone visiting the clinic will be required to wear a mask throughout the duration of their visit (exceptions for infants and very young children who may have difficulty wearing one). If you do not have your own mask, we will provide one for you.
What can I expect when I arrive?
- When you arrive for your appointment, please remain in your vehicle. Text or call using the link or phone number you were provided when you scheduled your appointment.
- When you have been notified that it is your turn to enter the building, a member of our care team will greet you at the door. We will provide you with a mask if you do not have one and allow you to sanitize your hands.
- You will then be escorted to a private, sanitized exam room. If you are unable to wait in a vehicle, please message or call immediately after reserving your appointment. Providing safe, efficient, and excellent care to your child is always our priority.
To promote optimal social distancing means reducing the number of persons in our clinic. We are asking that patients 17 years and under to be accompanied by no more than two parents or guardians. We ask that siblings NOT accompany your child unless they are being seen.
All of our employees are screened for symptoms whenever they enter the building. They wear masks at all times and follow strict hand washing and current up-to-date protective equipment guidelines. You are in great hands. We adhere to the most current World Health Organization guidelines, and we quickly identify and safely isolate any patients who may have COVID-19.
