News 12 reports that CityMD  is  temporarily closing more of its locations as it tries to keep up with the overwhelming demand for Covid testing.

The Patchogue and Mineola locations are now closed temporarily.

That’s in addition to two other locations that closed last week in Bay Shore and Merrick.

A total of 31 CityMD locations across the tri-state are now closed.

CityMD says it has to think about the welfare and safety of its own physicians and staff.
