LOWELL -- As part of our continuing efforts to protect patients and staff from spread of COVID-19, Circle Health urgent cares will require patients with minor illnesses and injuries to schedule appointments by phone.
Circle Health Urgent Care will continue to remain open to provide same day medical care for patients. Circle Health recognizes that our urgent care facilities are an important part of the integrated health system and will be necessary to support the care of patients during this time.
We are taking this important step to support social distancing efforts by limiting the number of patients in the waiting room at one time. All Circle Health urgent care locations will be locking the front doors to facilitate the screening of ALL patients before they enter the waiting area.
Patients with fever, cough, runny nose and signs of upper respiratory illness will be given preprinted sheets and phone numbers to call. Please note, urgent care does not provide Covid-19 testing at this time.
Online scheduling has been suspended. To contact a Circle Health urgent care, call the site directly at the following numbers:
- Circle Health Billerica – 978-323-2850
- Circle Health Dracut – 978-459-2273
