I want to provide you with another update in this time of uncertainty. First and foremost, Legacy ER & Urgent Care is open and offering a clean, safe environment for you and your family for your continued healthcare needs. As the recommended social distancing and in-home isolation continue, accidents and sicknesses beyond COVID-19 will continue to occur.

The experienced Legacy ER & Urgent Care team is trained and well-equipped to provide safe and reliable care during the developing COVID-19 outbreak.

Our dedicated team of healthcare professionals is taking all of the necessary precautions to ensure the safety of our patients and staff, including:

  • We are following the most rigorous CDC/HD sanitation guidelines for cleaning times and types of cleaning materials used
  • Continuous disinfection wipe-downs of all high-touch areas like the registration area, patient chairs, equipment, etc.
  • Rapid identification of patients exhibiting any cold or flu symptoms and requiring that they wear a protective mask
  • Using drive-up capabilities and/or additional entrances and exits to avoid common areas for high-risk patients
  • All personnel with any cold or flu symptoms are required to stay home

Any patients with symptoms who think they may have been exposed to COVID-19 should contact the health department in the county that they live in rather than presenting to a healthcare facility.

This allows the healthcare community to be able to collaborate in caring for you in an efficient and safe manner.

Collin County 972-548-5596 | Tarrant County 817-321-4700 | Dallas County 214-819-2000 | Denton County 940-349-2900

Remember to wash your hands practice proper social distancing and remain calm during this time of uncertainty; we’re here whenever you need us.

Thank you,

Jay Woody, MD
