Lexington Medical Center is seeing a high number of patients coming to Urgent Care and the Emergency department wanting a COVID-19 test. Patients who do not have COVID-19 symptoms should go to a testing site instead of Urgent Care or the ER. That will help Urgent Care and Emergency department clinicians provide care to sick patients in the most timely manner.
