Chai Urgent Care Becomes Rapid Testing Site For Coronavirus

With the coronavirus pandemic causing a level of anxiety among members of the community, Chai Urgent Care was declared an eligible testing site for the disease by New York City health department officials.

In order not to endanger regular patients, Chai Urgent Care said it will be conducting all testing at a tent located outside their clinics. No testing or suspected coronavirus cases will be in the building. The clinic itself will be sterilized and kept clean.

There is no appointment necessary for a test. Just walk in to any Chai Urgent Care location and its professional staff will conduct the coronavirus test.

Managers at the clinic said that for years, they have been rehearsing for the eventuality of a pandemic and have an ironclad plan in place. Staff members and providers have rigorously practiced it in order to be ready to safely serve patients as soon as needed. That plan kicked in as soon as it became apparent that the coronavirus was a life threatening illness.

Some of the safety features the Chai Urgent Care clinic is undertaking include wiping down the building and disinfecting it before each shift. Environmental protection agents also roam the building throughout the day and give it a scrubbing every few hours.

Each shift begins with a 15-minute conference call, in which providers and staff members go through the latest information on the coronavirus outbreak and what is being done to protect Chai Urgent Care staffers and patients from its effects.

Each one of the clinic’s locations has a considerable supply of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), which include a sufficient quantity of hand sanitizers and all safety gear needed to protect staffers and patients.

  1. A relative of mine developed a fever a cough and runny nose. He recently came back from out of town. Naturally we suspected he had the virus, and avoided others and stayed home. The only problem is, when he went to a clinic in town to get tested, they told him he’s not severe enough and he doesn’t have fever now which was due to the Advil he took before. Therefore they refused to test him. The next day he tried An urgent care, but then again he was told he’s not sick enough, which by now he was actually feeling better, so they refused to test. My question is what should one do in such a situation? Quarantine yourself on a maybe when you’re feeling all better a few days later? Unless people get tested they won’t know to protect others. There seems to be something not in order here.

  2. Please can you give some information as how reliable is the test? As even the hospitals have a shortage and are only testing “high” risk patients only, Please, can you explain how do you have the ability to test anyone? . Also how long does it take for the results to come back? Thank you
