RICHMOND, Va. (newsradiowrva.com) -- VCU Health has established a virtual urgent clinic for people concerned they may have COVID-19 symptoms or need immediate medical care. VCU Health providers can assess individuals for mild to moderate COVID-19 symptoms, provide next steps and refer them to in-person care if needed. Providers are also available to assess other urgent health issues. It's available to adults in Virginia between 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily, the on-demand virtual urgent site can be accessed without appointment by visiting vcuhealth.org/anywhere.

If you believe you have more severe symptoms, you are advised not to use the service and seek immediate medical help

In addition, VCU Health offers virtual visitation and greeting card programs, has rigorous disinfection measures in place and is now testing all adult and select pediatric patients -- with or without COVID-19 symptoms -- prior to scheduled surgeries and some tests via drive-thru and walk-in testing sites.
