Buzz: Roman Chariot back in service starting May 15. Cartersville Medical Center moves its occupational health clinic.

Starting Friday, May 15, Rome’s tourism office will resume Roman Chariot service, which provides free transportation for downtown customers and visitors.

To ensure driver and passenger safety, several safety measures will be followed. A protective barrier between the driver and passengers will be installed on each cart.  Drivers will sanitize all surfaces of the cart prior to each shift. Disinfectant wipes will be provided on each cart for passenger use.  Each request for pick-up will be handled separately. Only individuals who live in the same household can ride together. There is a limit of four passengers per cart and passengers are not permitted to sit next to the driver.

Operations will begin with limited hours and will expand as demand increases. Hours are Friday and Saturday from 5 until 9 p.m..

For free pick-up service, riders should text their location to 706-413-2822. The Roman Chariot will continue to keep the same route. It loops continuously from the Cotton Block to the 700 block and into the River District. Riders can request stops at crosswalks and intersections along the route.

The Roman Chariot service utilizes six-seat passenger club cars to provide transportation to downtown shopping, restaurants, parking, hotels and The Forum River Center.

Cartersville Medical Center has relocated its occupational health clinic to 11 Charley Harper Drive, Suite 100, in Cartersville (off West Avenue, behind Taco Bell and Wendy’s).

“We are very proud to be moving our occupational health services from the medical center campus to this new location. Business and industry employees will now have more convenient and efficient access to the occupational health services they need,” said Chris Mosley, CEO, Cartersville Medical Center.

This center will better serve employers located in West Cartersville for their employees who may require pre-employment physicals, drug tests, and other occupational services. The new location will be served by the same providers and staff as the hospital’s previous location. Employers should expect a seamless transition of care.

Occupational health services include employee physicals, immunizations, drug and alcohol testing, care for workplace injuries, and COVID-related tests. The facility also boasts on-site x-ray and expanded in-house labs.

The current hours of operation are 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday-Friday. In the future, the location will also offer urgent care services and will be open Monday-Friday 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturday-Sunday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
