After a significant drop in daily volume to historically normal levels (approximately 27 visit per day), volume started to rise consistently in July. Currently urgent cares are seeing, on average, 47 patients per day. Visits per day have more roughly doubled since the three-year historic average pre-COVID.
More than 2 percent of clinics are seeing more than 60 visits per day as of October 12 versus 5 percent during this date in 2019.
Combining traditional visits with COVID-related visits, total visit volume is up 59 percent from pre-COVID levels in 2019.
