Risk Stratification Guide for Severity Assessment and Triage of Suspected or Confirmed COVID-19 Patients (Adults) in Urgent Care [open pdf - 0B]
From the Document: "General Guidelines: 1. For urgent care centers which do not have the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] testing capabilities, patients who are stable and want to get tested or need testing should be referred to a local non-emergency department site or facility. This is to decrease unnecessary patient volumes in the emergency department (ED). 2. Prior to sending patients to the ED, please contact the ED to make sure that they will be able to test the patient for COVID-19. This is applicable for ED transfers of patients in whom COVID-19 infection is a concern. Patients transferred should have a surgical mask in place."
