Information on COVID-19

COVID-19 Update from UrgentCare Indy
Please Note: Our office will begin offering tests for Coronavirus to qualified patients on Wednesday, April 1st (learn more about testing). UrgentCare Indy remains active in COVID updates for both the state and national levels. Precautions have been taken in our clinic to ensure the safest and most clean environment.

If you have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19 or traveled to these countries in the last 30 days, and have a fever or respiratory symptoms (cough or shortness of breath), please call your primary care provider before going to their clinic. They can help triage your case and direct you to the care that you need.

Need a Primary Care Provider?

It’s no secret that many people often go to the doctor at the last minute when something is wrong. Walk-in urgent care clinics are affordable and can help you get better quickly, but who is looking out for your overall health during the rest of the year?

Along with providing urgent care, our clinic also offers a primary care service called PrimaryCare Indy.  Our primary care professionals have one goal: to help you effectively manage your health issues and stay healthy. If you don’t have a primary care provider looking out for your health, don’t wait any longer. Contact us today and schedule your first appointment!

How to protect yourself from the Coronavirus:

You can protect yourself from COVID-19 infection the same ways you protect against the common cold or seasonal flu.

  • Sanitize your hands often for at least 20 seconds each time. Alcohol gel works well in most situations (like after coughing, sneezing, or blowing your nose), but handwashing with soap and water should be performed after going to the bathroom, before eating, or when your hands are visibly soiled.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. (Putting a tissue on a table contaminates the surface of the table with germs.)
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Routinely disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces, using a cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Avoid travel to high-risk countries. We are discouraging non-essential travel to or through any of the countries for which the CDC has issued a level 2 or 3 travel health notice.

If you feel sick...

  • Use home quarantine or home isolation:
    • Stay home if you believe you have been exposed to the virus, even if you are not showing any symptoms.
    • If you have traveled to a country on the CDC list of level 2 or 3 travel health notices and feel ill, call your health care provider to determine the best next step.
    • Stay home when you are sick, especially if you have respiratory illness symptoms. These symptoms could be due to influenza or other respiratory viruses rather than a COVID-19 infection. Whether you have seasonal flu, the common cold, or something else, it’s important you stay away from others when sick.
    • Monitor yourself for fever, coughing and shortness of breath.
