Many of our patients have been contacting our centers, looking for information to help keep their families healthy and safe. Your health and safety is our priority, too. That’s why we’re encouraging our patients to follow the advice below as a first step before visiting vybe urgent care.
If you are not experiencing symptoms, stay home and continue social distancing. The best way to help slow the spread of this virus is to self-quarantine at home and to limit exposure to others if you must go out.
vybe is not offering COVID-19 testing based on patient requests or doctor referrals. If you have mild symptoms, please self-isolate at home. If you have more severe symptoms, please use our telemedicine option to visit with a provider online. During the video visit, we may recommend you visit one of our centers for testing, which may include a test for COVID-19.
vybe urgent care is dedicated to helping improve the health of the communities we serve, and it’s something we take to heart in good times and bad. This is why we’ll be working hard to keep our clinics open so we can be there to support our patients and their families.
At this time, we are maintaining our regular business hours. However, we recommend you double-check your local vybe for any closures or adjusted hours before heading in.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Can I Stay Healthy and Avoid the Coronavirus? Since there’s no vaccine currently available for COVID-19, the best way to prevent infection is to avoid close contact with those already infected – especially if you already have a chronic illness or disease. Follow the same preventive measures that you would take with the flu. Cover your coughs and sneezes, wash hands frequently, and mininize contact with others when you’re not feeling your best.
Is It Safe for Me to Visit vybe?
The safety of our team and our patients is our top priority. We’re offering video visits to provide full care to patients from the comfort of home. At our centers, we have strict infection control protocols, and will perform pre-entry screening as additional protection from coronavirus. If you’re not feeling sick, we recommend you stay at home and continue social distancing. To start a video visit, click here.
Can the Coronavirus Be Treated? Since it is a virus, the coronavirus cannot be treated with antibiotics. However, just like the common cold or flu, you may use medications to relieve the symptoms of cough, congestion, and fever.
Does vybe Offer Testing or Treatment for the Coronavirus? vybe is not testing patients experiencing mild symptoms or otherwise healthy patients who believe they might have been exposed to coronavirus. We recommend you seek treatment only after a 14-day self-quarantine or if your symptoms get worse. For patients who speak with a vybe clinician and are experiencing symptoms, we will perform tests according to recommendations and standards of care from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and local Public Health Departments. This may not necessarily include a test for COVID-19.
What Are the Differences Between the Coronavirus and the Flu?
Coronavirus and flu have very similar symptoms. It is important to note most patients experiencing flu-like symptoms do not have Coronavirus and should seek care at vybe or another healthcare provider.
