  JERSEY SHORE – In an effort to provide health services during the COVID-19 emergency, Urgent Care NOW will be able to do screenings for certain things, including coronavirus, over the phone.

  Virtual Visits can be used for these simple medical issues:

  • Return to work checks
  • Screening for cough and fever
  • Rashes
  • Medication refills
  • Allergies
  • Conjunctivitis
  • Upper respiratory infections
  • Follow-up visits

  To schedule a virtual visit, call 609-978-0242. Tell the staff you would like to schedule a virtual visit. Staff will register you and send your request to one of our providers to begin a virtual visit. Most insurers are covering telemedicine virtual visit during this crisis. Staff members will have a list of insurance companies that currently offer coverage.

  These virtual visits are between the hours of 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekends.

  Walk-ins are still welcome; the phone screenings are for specific ailments. If, during the course of a phone call, it is determined that an in-person visit is needed, then it is considered all part of the same visit.

  Urgent Care NOW has locations in Manahawkin, Lacey, Toms River and Little Egg Harbor. Center hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday (*Little Egg Harbor is currently open Monday to Friday).
