VCU Health announced that due to a continuing decline in patient visits to its temporary urgent care center, it closed the clinic at 5 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 4.

A recent press release noted, “If we experience another surge, we will consider reopening as needed. The clinic at 416 Durant St., in South Hill was open about a month to alleviate strain on the emergency room. Occupational Health and Wellness will resume normal operations in this clinic on Monday, Feb. 7.”
