Rochester Regional Health has closed 19 facilities since the COVID-19 pandemic began

Rochester Regional Health has announced the temporary closure of its Immediate Care center in Penfield.

The Daily Messenger reports that brings to 19 the number of Rochester Regional facilities that have closed since the COVID-19 pandemic began. In the Finger Lakes, the list includes the Clifton Springs/Newark, Seneca Falls and Sodus Laboratory Service Centers.

The closures come in the wake of increased demand in the form of COVID-19 patients and staff shortages, made worse by the state’s vaccine mandate for health care workers.
