CityMD Closes Another Dozen Locations Temporarily Amid Staffing Woes

The healthcare provider said last week it was closing nearly 20 locations -- and now the numbers are mounting

There are more and more people looking to get a COVID test, and now fewer and fewer CityMD locations to possibly find one.

One of the largest healthcare providers in the NYC area announced Tuesday evening that another dozen of its locations would be temporarily closing, after closing nearly 20 locations on Dec. 22.

CityMD said that it comes down to staffing difficulties.

"Most CityMD locations are operating at full capacity, doing our best to meet the urgent care needs of the people of New York and New Jersey. Continuing to provide these services to the community is a top priority; however, our physicians and teammates are also a priority," their website read. "To preserve our ability to staff our sites, we have temporarily closed certain locations. It is our hope that closing sites now will best allow us to avoid future closures as this surge continues."

Other COVID vaccination and testing centers have experienced worker shortages after workers tested positive for the virus themselves, leaving the already overwhelmed clinics stretched to the limit even further.
