There are now 31 urgent care chain CityMD locations closed due to a staff shortage, a major hit to the number of SARS-CoV-2 testing sites amid a surge in demand.
Just a week ago the company announced that 19 of its urgent care clinics would be temporarily closing. Now it appears that number has ballooned as CityMD continues to struggle to staff its sites.
The temporarily closed locations include 20 across New York City, five in New Jersey, four on Long Island and two in Westchester County.
CityMD said on its website it hopes closing these sites now will help it to avoid closing other sites in the future.
