Velocity Urgent Care is conducting hassle-free and on- demand coronavirus (COVID-19) testing at all of its 14 locations including the South Boston location.
In addition to testing for current COVID-19 symptoms, they are now offering an antibody test to detect if a patient had a previous COVID-19 infection.
“Our COVID-19 tests are run on state-of-the-art equipment in a nationally accredited laboratory,” said Alan Ayers, CEO of Velocity Urgent Care. “We strive to make this process easy for our patients and keep them informed every step of the way.”
If a patient is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or has potentially been exposed to someone who has tested positive, they must call the center (https://www.velocityuc.com/locations) first to make arrangements, which may include a curbside evaluation.
All Velocity Urgent Care locations are still open for non-COVID-19 related illnesses and injuries. Each location offers no-appointment-necessary visits with licensed providers for treatment of minor illnesses and injuries. Velocity Urgent Care utilizes stringent sanitation and infection control procedures while also following CDC Infection Control guidelines in their cleaning regimens.
Services include digital X-rays and lab capabilities on-site. Most insurance is accepted, and there is a self-pay option for those without insurance. In addition, Velocity’s partnership with Sentara Healthcare enables referrals and data-sharing with more than 3,900 Sentara specialists and primary care providers.
Velocity Urgent Care operates 14 locations across Eastern and Northern Virginia including facilities in Carrolton, Gloucester, Newport News, Norfolk, South Boston, Suffolk, Virginia Beach, Woodbridge and Williamsburg.
