Lourdes Urgent Care is preparing for an unprecedented “COVID-19/Flu” season. You should too!
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an unprecedented COVID-19 surge coupled with the upcoming flu season could lead to the “worst fall” health threat in history.
CEO, Steve Sellars says, “The combination of flu and COVID-19 outbreaks in the fall is a tremendous threat to public health across the country. It will require a coordinated approach to ensure at-risk patients end up in the most appropriate clinical setting whether it’s for testing or treatment. Barring an emergency, going to an urgent care clinic first offers quick, no-appointment access to care at night. Just as important, it keeps keeping non-emergency patients out of the ER leaving beds open for sickest patients to get potentially life-saving treatment.” Meanwhile, Sellars goes on to say, “Urgent Care clinics have implemented protocols and training to make sure patients and staff in the clinic are safe.”
Lourdes Urgent Care is ready and committed to providing a safe clinical environment at all times adhering to all CDC COVID-19 safety guidelines. Additionally, our staff maintains “Anti-COVID-19” protocols including:
- No Contact Virtual Visits
- Wait-at-Home Option
- Strict Cleaning and Disinfection Processes at Clinics
- Masks Required
- Seating and Floor Marking to Ensure Social Distancing

Patients with COVID-19 symptoms are immediately isolated and treated according to CDC guidelines.
