NEW YORK — Citing staffing issues amid a surge in demand, CityMD will temporarily close an additional seven locations in the city after originally closing 13 outlets early last week, the company said Tuesday evening.

CityMD says it is making the move to ensure it can continue to staff its existing locations — most of which are operating at full capacity due to surge in COVID-19 cases and demand for testing — and to avoid future closures.

"With 150 locations, we’re hopeful any patients affected should still have access to a CityMD location," CityMD said on Twitter.

"Continuing to provide these services to the community is a top priority; however, our physicians and teammates are also a priority," the company added in a statement on its website.

New York City has in recent days increased its number of testing locations, as well as bolstering its supply of at-home rapid tests, according to health officials.

New Yorkers are facing hours-long wait times for COVID-19 tests as the omicron variant of the coronavirus spurs record jumps in new infections and as many residents travel for the holidays.

The city on Tuesday reported nearly 21,000 new positive COVID-19 cases, up from 17,334 positive cases the day prior, according to city health data. The city’s seven-day average COVID positivity rate now stands at 13.7%.
